Dissapointed in VW quality and reliability

Purchased 09 VW CC in Apr 2009. Loved the Car at first and received numerous compliments. Shared the great qualities of the car with everyone that asked. Should have forseen when I could not take my new car home the firts day due to a recall with the seat wiring harness and a warning light for the fuel system that these were signs of things to come. 1 week after bringing home window seal leaked after going through car wash; fixed immediately. Within a month trunk would not close again repaired under warranty. Drive many highway miles so warrantly expired within 1 year of purchase. At about 50,000 miles noticed dashboard around ignition and glove box had bubbled and was peeling. Of course not under warranty so repair was going to be expensive as whole dashboard would be replaced. Following year (year 2 of ownership) trunk would not open, had to repair at cost of $250.00 as wire harness had broke. No indiciation of rodent chewing through or external cause. Aug 2011 recall due to steering wheel control module safety recall. Sept 2011 steering wheel warning light sounded and steering wheel locked up. Thought related to recall had towed to dealership at cost of $80.00. Diagnosed had nothing to do with recall, but steering rack needed to be replaced. Estimated cost to fix from VW dealership - $1600.00. Extremely disappointed in the quality and reliability in the VW craftmanship. Always under the impression that German engineeering was of high quality. Apparently I was mistaken. Should have stayed with my prior vehicle brand as I have 1 car with over 297,000 miles on it and only the starter has been changed. Liked the look of the VW CC was the main reason for switching. Learned the hard way to stick with what works. Had a colleague about to purchase a CC fortunately for them my issue happened prior to purchase so I was able to let them know.

Best luxurious car for its price

Best luxury car/sporty car for its money. As soon as I saw it i fell in love with it exterior styling and then once i hopped in it i knew I had to have it. The interior must be top in its class. It has the interior of a $80,000 car. The beige and black two tone seats are the nicest I seen. I always get compliments on it everywhere I go. When I saw I knew I had to get it but It still had to pass the performance test for me. I got the 4 cylinder turbo charged version. The pick up on it is amazing, you can feel the turbo as soon as you step down on the gas. I do however wish you could hear the turbo more. It is also so quiet when the windows are up and super smooth. Overall I love this car and still feel excited everyday to drive it.

The Volkswagen CC is extremely impressive, especially for the relatively low price. The car is fun to drive, extremely comfortable inside, well designed, and overall a well engineered car. The CC is a great all around car. I own the 2.oL turbo four which is a great engine. It has just the right amount of power and efficiency. When I want to, I can drive it like a sportscar and get some performance enjoyment from it, and when I'm cruising on the highway it gets great mileage. I've been able to squeeze over 34mpg out of a tank. The front seats are very comfortable, and the minimalist interior does very well on the car. The car is just packed with awesome small features: wow factors that you discover the first few weeks of owning the car. The backseat, despite being a "coupe" is nice and big, with two 6-footers sitting behind two more 6-footers in the front. Overall, I've loved every minute of driving the car, I can't find anything wrong to write about it. The only minorly negative thing is that sometimes I wish it had a bit more power. However, the practicality, styling, and value more than make up for that. I've had many people come up to me and tell me that the CC is one of the best looking cars on the road. Go drive one! You won't be let down!!

I bought the VR6 sport in September of 2009. Its been a very reliable car thus far (26000 miles in). No squeeks, creeks or window leaks. The V6 had plenty of power, at least for me. My wife calls it "the rocket ship" when she uses it. :) Mileage is spot on to the official specs. I'm getting 24-26 mpg overall on 87. The ride is good. It can feel a little harsh over very rough pavment, but with the 18" wheels and low profile tires, you have to expect that. Road noise is great around town, but gets a little loud at highway speeds (could be due to the tires). It handles great. Its a VW. What else can you say? Interior quality is excellent. Everything feels and looks solid. No cheapo plastic. I like the design and ergonomic placment of everything. No distractions and everything is easily reachable. Head and legroom are good, though taller people (I'm 5'10") may find head room a problem when getting in the car. It does have a low roof line, but once your in there is no problem. My only complaints about this car are the resale values. I expected better from a quality car like this, but demand must be soft. Lastly, bluetooth should have been a no brainer for the engineers at VW. Almost every competitor in its class comes with this "option" as standard. I hope VW learns from that mistake and makes it standard on every CC from now on.

We love this car. We bought the CC Lux a few months ago and have been thrilled with the decision. Great features. Very comfortable with solid handling, strong acceleration and excellent gas mileage of 25 around town and 30+ on the highway. We have a cottage in northern Wisconsin and bought the CC to bring our trip cost down. Our other vehicle is a Toyota 4runner. Nice truck, but with the V8 it sucks gas. The CC gets almost double the gas mileage and so far has handled snow just fine. Looks great, handles great and solid performance. Buy one. You won't be disappointed!

I have owned various cars, one of them was teh BMW 323i, I had it modified to basically street race, untill this year that was the best car I ever had, then I met the CC, I was watching the super bowl and saw the first comercial, it caught my eye, so I went down to the dealer the same day after the game, I am serious when I say that I was in love, just by looking at the exterior it was amazing, so I get to look inside, I was amazed, I was not in to buy yet but I figured what the heck lets test drive it, beleive me when I say it was one of the smoothest rides I have had, I seriously did not want to stop driving it, the impact was so great that I bought it, so now ive had it for 2 months and I have not found anything I can complain on, it is great milage with the 4 cyl 2.0 turbo, it handles like any of the top line german cars and the speed, oh the speed, to be honest nothing I type here will ever describe how the card feels, go test drive one, you will not regret it.

Great styling

by from WI on April 11, 2011

I have owned the car for 3 months. So far it has been great. The owners manual is 3" deep hard to get all the electronic systems set properly. Fun car, good mileage and great styling.

I reviewed my CC Sport in early May after just a few days of ownership (I bought it on 4/25/09) and I thought that I would provide an update. I still love the car. I have read reviews of people getting bad gas mileage but I have exactly the opposite experience. My car has the 2.0 I4 Turbo engine. My normal gas mileage is ~24.5 MPG, about 50% city and 50% highway driving. Last weekend I averaged 34.35 MPG on a 350 mile trip! My last car got 21 MPG so I am totally elated!
