In my nearly two decades of driving experience, if there is one thing that I miss the most, it is not being able to drive. As my colleagues, friends, family will concur, I’m a horrible passenger, always itching to get back in the driving seat. In fact, my inability to share driving duties – read that as unwilling to give up the driver’s seat – has led to many arguments over the years and none have ended pleasantly.
Given the current circumstances then, you can easily imagine what the lack of driving is doing to me. However, it has not been all bad news, and as a journalist, I’ve been able to drive to the office a couple of times, which has been a good break from the daily routine of being stuck at home. Additionally, I’ve taken the task of getting supplies for the house, which only gives me more chances to drive, even if it’s for a short distance.
If there’s an issue I’m facing from the otherwise flawless Tiguan, it’s with cleaning its large panoramic roof. As the cleaning guy is barred from entering our locality, I’ve discovered that despite trying my best, cleaning the huge roof is a pretty complicated exercise. Well, who knew!
