    Volkswagen CC.

    Anyone know about or have experience with the CC? Wife and I are looking for a new car.

    I haven't owned one but I've owned a car with the same drivetrain. The 2.0T is a great motor and the DSG transmission is one of the best made. With that said, unless you're buying used, I think they are at least $5K overpriced.

    Great car. Don't have one, but a solid possibility for my next car. I'd pick the 2.0T over the V6 if it were my money.

    Hmmm. I've owned 4 VWs and they've all had issues. Great design, ride, etc.; poor reliability. Read the consumer pubs and they pretty much tell the story. Reliability is a major issue w V-dubs.

    I've had one (2012) for over 3 months with no complaints. Great ride and gas mileage and service (oil) only every 10,000 miles. 2.0T is plenty quick and a solid built car.

    3 months? And no complaints? I hope not! It's after 50,000 miles that the issues show up in a VW.

    I didn't think VW's even made it to 50k.

    Have a 2010 Jetta and a VW Golf TDI (turbo Diesel) rated #1 in small wagon's/hatchbacks. Both rock solid cars. Both reasonably received by consumer reports.

    The ones with more bells and whistles have had problems--the Passat and Toureg and VW Beetle the last few years.

    The smaller SUV--the Tiguan, is a great car.


    The wife and I had 6 Toyota's since '93 and got sick of them. Definitely would keep looking at VW's in the future too

    Re: Volkswagen CC.

    Doing some research it seems most pubs agree the 2.0T is the best buy. Found a couple certified preowned V6, with very low miles, in the 33-34k range. That is intriguing.

    I had a 99 golf, never had an issue with it. My wife had 01 jetta and had good luck as well. Looking at consumer reports there isn't too much going wrong with them. However they have only been out since 09.

    That seems very expensive for that class of car.

    For the same price you can buy a low mileage certified Lexus ES350, Infiniti G37, Acura TL, Audi A4, BMW 328, etc.

    Once again, nothing wrong with the CC just a little overpriced for what you get. I will tell you that the interior in the VW that I had was one of my favorites and I've owned a bunch of cars. Another big plus on the CC is that you won't see a ton of them around.

    I normally recommend buying used but in this case I think I'd rather have a new $33K CC 2.0t than a loaded used one with the VR6. I bet you could get a pretty good discount on a new one and everything I've read tells me the 2.0 is the better choice. Keep in mind that you'll be paying for premium fuel.

    Out of curiosity, why do you keep buying vw's if you have bad experiences with them??? I have a couple friends that owned vws and from what I know- they were great cars for them. My wide and I are looking at vans right now and the vw routon looks like one of the better ones out there as far as features for the money (granted we haven't test driven any yet).

    Not disagreeing with you. Just wanted to share what I found. By low mileage, I was talking less than 5,000 miles. You won't find a BMW, merc, Lexus, ect... With that low of miles for that price. But like I said I agree.

    FYI, the VW Routan is a Dodge Grand Caravan/Chrysler Town & Country with some suspension tuning and different body work. Don't get me wrong, our 09 Grand Caravan has been great for us, but you're not getting "German engineering" with the Routan. If I had a ton of cash to drop on a new minivan, I'd go 1) Honda or 2) Toyota. Those Odysseys are niiiiiice.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Volkswagen CC.

    We are very VW family. We've got a 2010 CC that we bought new, a 2008 GTI that we bought new, and a 1978 Super Beetle convertible that I've had for just a few years. I also still have my '99 Ford Ranger that I've had since new with over 150,000 miles on it. It's my hauler and bad weather vehicle.

    The CC is my wife's car and we've got nearly 40,000 miles on it already. It's got the same drive train as my GTI, the 2.0 with the fabulous DSG transmission. It drives great, looks great (people often mistake it for a high end Mercedes), and gets great gas mileage. The every 10,000 mile oil change frequency bothers me. It's every 5000 on my GTI which I had trouble enough getting used to. My suspicion is that the only reason it's 10,000 is because they give them for free. But we haven't had a single issue with this car yet.

    The GTI is mine and I absolutely love it. It's got the best performance of any car I"ve ever had (including a Firebird and an RX-7) and also can achieve the best gas mileage which is a rare combination. When I was deciding which car to buy, I think it was Road & Track that had on article on the MK V GTI calling it the best combination of perfornance and practicality of any car they'd ever tested. I think they were right. This car is a blast to drive, is incredibly comfortable and nicely luxurious (better than my boss's Mercedes), and consistently averages over 30 mpg for my daily driving on my 30 mile commute in Dallas. I've just passed 50,000 miles on it with no issues.

    The Super Beetle convertible is my favorite toy. I bought it a few years ago from the proverbial "little old lady" that had it since new. It has under 50,000 miles on it and still is completely original - interior, paint, and has never been dented. It's a beauty and I drive it around quite a bit. Just a few months ago I took it on an 800 mile round trip through the Ozark Mountains. It did great and averaged 33 mpg, even though I had it going a consistent 80 mph for long stretches. Even hit 90 a few times.

    You could call me a VW guy and you'd be right. I do agree that VW has had their quality issues in the recent past. But I think they're gettting back on track. I still think they were the very best when they were making air cooled cars. I wish they'd bring them back!
