Great Car Great Price

I have had my CC for about 4 months now and absolutely love it. Recently drove this car on a 3 week 4000 mile road trip with my wife and daughter, and not one of us was ever uncomfortable the entire trip. Every where we stopped people commented on our car. The style is second to none, nothing close to this price range looks near as good. I was considering and Audi A4, and a BMW 3 series, but the CC is every bit as good, for a lot less. Search online and you can find video's comparing it to a Mercedes CLS. At 100 mph the noise in this car is only 4 db higher than the CLS. And while the CLS is a better car it cost nearly twice as much as the CC fully loaded. So the fact that the 2 can even be compared shows how great this car is. And as for it only having 4 seats, my last car had "3" seats in the back, but we were never cruel enough to ever force some one to sit on that back middle seat. If you need to seat 5 or more then this car is simply not for you. The trade off is some of the best 2 rear seats in any car under 50k

VW CC 2010

My wife and I have had, Mercedes, Jaguar, Lexus, Infiniti, Audi, Acura, Honda and Jeep. I don't think I can recall any one of our cars that had a better fit and finish. This car is incredibly well built, the design is spectacular. In fact we get lots of Mercedes CLS drivers pointing at us because they see a car that looks exactly the same as theirs for half the price. We're very impressed, delighted with the product, great dealership experience. The only reason I gave the car 4 stars in any category is we brought the 4 cylinder engine base model so it lacks a few items, built in garage opener being the key one. We feel like we got a great value for the money we paid. Only have 2,500 miles so I can't speak to reliability or service quality stay tuned. All looks great so far.

This is my first new car purchase. I drive 60 miles per day in it and it gets 37 mpg on the highway! Its slow off the line for the first second and then once the turbo kicks in it does have some good acceleration. I get lots of compliments on the styling of the car. It has an expensive look to the inside cabin. The only gripe I have is that I have a vibration sound when accelerating @ around 2500 rpm and the rear seat window button unit pulls completely out of the door! VW better correct this on my scheduled service. Other than what I have listed, I don't think you can find a better sports sedan for the money.

Compared to BMW and other high end autos, you definitely get more for the money with the Volkswagen CC! I'd say one of the best cars on the market in the $30k-$40k range. Mine is a 2010 CC Sport Turbo with 40k miles and it's been awesome!

I love my CC! I was looking for a manual transmission with a sun/moon roof like the Passat I owned a few cars ago, and was very disappointed to find ott you can't get such a car, unless you get the Eos. The Eos is too small and just not practical for me, so I test drove a Passat, CC and Tiguan. I chose the CC because it has the most options (e.g. Heated seats, Bluetooth etc.) available in the manual transmission package. It kept surprising me with things it does that I didn't know about, such as lighting up the sides of the road (or your driveway) just by turning the steering wheel, love that and didn't even know the car did it. Very happy!

Forward Edge of New Wave of Sports Sedans

I have owned my silver-blue CC a mere six days and I am really enjoying it. It is beautiful, sexy, comfortable, technologically advanced, safe, quiet and roomy. I have described it as the "Forward Edge of New Wave of Sports Sedans" because I believe VW is making great efforts to create an environmentally-responsible, fuel efficient, economical sport sedan that meets the needs of the 21st century. Our world depends on cars driving ever lower on emissions and ever higher on fuel efficiency. And for some of us, we STILL want an exciting and stylish car to drive. (No thanks to a Prius; looks like what the old Soviet bloc might have produced had it made it past 1989 into the 21st-century.) I have seen the CC described in online reviews as an "executive" car, which I think is appropriate: I am a 50 year old business consultant, and I don't want or need seating for 5 or pudgy styling of a Toyota Camry, etc. I want a sophisticated, economical, responsive sport sedan that makes travel a joy. The CC does that in spades. (And I love the back seat treatment of two buckets with the cool accordion-covered compartment!) Prior sport sedans I have owned: 2000 Audi A6 2.7T 1987 Saab 900 Turbo 1991 Ford Taurus SHO The driveline takes some getting used to, however, I'm starting to see the logic and potential in it. It is very cool the car can FLY and get GREAT gas mileage. The Turbo 4 coupled with the DSG transmission, some nice aerodynamics, and a lot of computerization make that possible. We're talking 23 mpg combined and well over 30 MPG on the highway. It's a very comfortable and stylish car and has awesome German controls and layout plus Audi-level fit and finish. (I used to have a 2000 A6 2.7T.) This is definitely a car that could be at the lower end of the Audi range; it certainly seems to benefit from the family ties. This 2010 model is the first year apparently with the 2.0T mated with DSG transmission. VW needs to work on smoothness of the S sport mode especially. Turbo engines have lots of lag inherently, and this are does a lot of jerky shifts -- especially in downshifting -- when in S mode. When accelerating rapidly onto a freeway, etc, this is less of a problem; you get a big blast of power that feels like a lot more than 200 hp in under the hood. Love that! The manual-shifting tiptronic I have not figured out completely. Not sure when is the best time to use that except in fast on-off throttle situations such as "squirting" around traffic or on tight roads. The regular M mode delivers very respectable fuel efficiency, and with the advanced engine management, you can cruise around in pretty high gears with out lugging that might have occurred in years past with less advanced engines. I am astonished at how far things have come in 10 years in this arena. Overall, very satisfying drive, and my inner techno-geek is enjoying the challenge of how to understand and fully leverage the sophisticated early-stage advanced drivetrain. Will know more about reliability later.

My Favorite Car

by from San Francisco, CA on October 22, 2011

I've owned Audis and Lexuses for years. I bought the 2010 VW CC because I couldn't resist the styling. It gets very good gas mileage and it's a fun car to drive.

Spent most of the last year trying to find a 2010-2012 CC R-Line in either black or white exterior, black interior, in the 6 speed manual transmission. Finally found one in white in Tempe AZ and one in black in Coconut Creek FL. I went down and bought the one in FL. I'm glad I didn't compromise because this is tied with the best car I have ever owned (tied with a '88 Scirocco that I still own and race). The car drove the 10 hours home in TOTAL COMFORT. It has a great kick of power from the factory (though I now have it at a stage two from the 3 letter tuning flash company starting with A and ending in R). The fit, finish, and styling can't be matched for the money. Clean and underrated, the CC was extremely conservative on the wallet in initial price as well as fuel efficiency. I got 32.6mpg on the trip back and, with the power, arrived nearly 30 minutes earlier than what the GPS said I should expect. Handling, ride quality, braking, responsiveness, literally everything about the car has impressed me. This is a car that defines value, it IS a car that you buy and get more than you paid for. I really don't know how it can be this good and not be twice the price. If you are a driver, this is the car you want. If you don't want to be in touch with your car, or you want to blend into the background, look elsewhere. I am constantly asked what it is, how much did it cost, and is it as nice to drive as it is to look at (it is). VW lost me for a while but now has my attention (and business) again. It started with an '84 Jetta GLI, then an '88 Scirocco 16v, and now a 2010 CC R-Line; each one has been a revolution in style and performance and been a turning point in how good a car can be done. I hope VW continues to follow this path and brings over the new Scirocco. Now that I own this CC, I would buy one of those in a heartbeat and park it right next to it. If you didn't get it by now, I highly recommend this vehicle. ;-) Blitz

Over the years I have owned two Passats, one Jetta, a BMW 325, a BMW 330, an Audi 5000s, and a Mazda 626. I have enjoyed all of my cars. I LOVED my BMWs but I did not enjoy the expense of the BMWs. I believe the CC is the best value that I have ever owned. The exterior design is beautiful. The interior is very comfortable and the gadgets are spot on. What I love most about this car, however is the mix of style, sportiness, and comfort. I have the sport with the 4 cylinder turbo engine. I did spend the extra $ for the ground effects and 18" low profile tires which provide the subtle extras that really set this car apart.

I ve owner my 2010 cc 2.0t for 2 years now and put almost 50000 kilometres on it,I drive ALOT. It's now at 120000 km And has never given me any major problems other than a light bulb going out here and there. The car is an absolute beauty to drive especially on the highway, that's when you realize the real value of this car and the German enginuity. I m a huge Audi fan also and was considering an s4 but my budget didn't really agree with me and personally the cc looks much better. Interior design is just as nice as exterior only downfall for me is that it has NO HAND brake but an electronic brake instead. I really don't get why car companies are steering away from them. Also one thing worth mentioning and READ CAREFULLY before you get ripped off if you by the cc or any new Audi vw or bmw with direct fuel injection turbo engine. After about 70000-100000 km of driving you WILL need a decarbornization. Your fuel injector build carbon and you will then feel slight vibration when warming up the car or when idling, engine light will come on too. Don't panic like I first did it's a simple job and vw offers extended warranty on it so you ll end up paying roughly $240 and paying that every 4-5 years is really no big deal but a must do.
