2010 Volkswagen CC VR6 Problems

Clunking Noise from Floorboard Under Acceleration

Drivers of the Volkswagen CC VR6 may experience a clunking noise associated with acceleration from a stop, or downshifting for hard acceleration. This will also be accompanied by a light impact sensation under the drivers feet. Drivers may also notice unexplained changes to their front end alignment while driving. 

This issue is commonly called " VW Subframe Clunk", and is caused by the gradual stretching of the bolts that secure the subframe to the vehicle. The subframe is a large plate that secures to the bottom of the engine bay, and connects the body of the car to the engine and suspension. Over time, the bolts that secure the subframe stretch, allowing the subframe to move and hit the bottom of the car when accelerating.

There are many aftermarket kits that can be installed to correct the issue, and Volkswagen has issued a correction including better bolts, and spacers which fit between the subframe and the car.

Odor from HVAC system

Condensation may develop in the heater case which can cause a musty odor from the heating, ventilation and AC (HVAC) system.  Our technicians tell us the drain system should be checked for debris. In addition, a cleaner is available for the heater case.

Software update available for radio and navigation systems

Various radio and navigation issues can be corrected by updating the necessary software. Our technicians remind us that radio and navigation problems should be properly diagnosed before any software updates are completed.

The upper rear bulb when out but I'm waiting for my 40,000 mile service to have that replaced. I am not looking forward to that service. I was quoted 750.00. Paying high labor rates for a lot of visual checking...
Great car! Looks are great too; but the stearing/handling and comfort are what makes this car evening better. We have had several tail lights replaced due to loose components or burn bulbs. We think there may be a larger problem. There is also a rattle in the rear towards the tail pipe that sounds when we turn off the vehicle and we had been using the AC. Dealer says it is normal, for it is...
