RepairPal Expert Overview:
Volkswagen is recalling 2009 CC models because an improperly routed right front passenger seat belt buckle wiring harness may cause wire damage when the seat is adjusted. If this wiring damage occurs, the air bag control module may deactivate the passenger's frontal air bag, increasing the risk of injury during a crash. Dealers will inspect and adjust/replace the wiring harness free of charge.

2009 Volkswagen CC Reviews
At 62K miles the engine light came on. I took it to my local mechanic who diagnosed the problem as carbon buildup on the valves which they said that the intake manifold would have to be removed and the valves cleaned manually which they were not equipped to do. I took the cc to the VW dealer, they said the same thing and quoted me $300 to do an induction service (BG) or remove the intake manifold and manually clean the valves. They explained to me that this 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine has direct fuel injection into the combustion chamber so no fuel is flowing over the valves to keep them clean. The quote to do this was $800. I went to VW HQS and plead my case. They suggested i try the induction service and if it didn't work to call them back. This is what I did and the induction service didn't work so I went back to VW Hqs and they agreed to credit me the cost of the induction service towards the valve cleaning which I went ahead and had done. Total price $800 minus the credit of $300, it cost me $500. The dealer tried to tell me this problem in the fault of the poor gas quality but my opinion is that it is a design flaw and VW did not test the engine long enough for this problem to show up. There has to be a volume of owners out there experiencing the same problem. So if the group is large enough maybe someone can get something done to get VW to acknowledge the problem and reimburse us for this expense repair and engineer a fix for the future.
The suspension on these cars has an engineering problem. I bought the car new and at 30K all 4 tires were cupping and the dealer failed to bring this to my attnention at 10K service, 3 times. I took it back to the dealer and he said that the tires were the problem. I went to my mechanic and he checked the 4 wheel alignment and said that it appears the alignment was wrong when I bought the car. I went directly to VW and they agreed to replace 2 tires and I replaced the other 2 at my expense. In looking thru the internet it seem a lot a VW CC owners are having the same problem
Owned since new Apr 2009. Two rear tail lights replaced. Everything else has been perfect. Conti tires are getting noisy and need replacement (at 40K miles). Highway mileage over 34mpg if kept under 75 mph on a trip. Use 89 octane gas in place of premium with little effect on drivability.
Took my CC in for the recall and two weeks later my battery died. After paying 170 for a new battery plus service, two months later, the battery died yet again. There were no light left on in the car. Not pleased at all with this issue. I've had several Nissans and not once did a battery die.
I bought this car in July 2009. I have had nothing but problems with it. I have had all the routine maintenance on this car. At the 20k mile maintenance, I got the car back and it broke down on me & left me stranded. I had to have it towed back to Vw. They replaced the #3Fuel injector. Then at 30k miles, sure enough got it back and again I had the same problem. Broke down, and again had it towed back to Vw. They again replaced the #3 Fuel Injector. I have switched dealerships for service & now drive 15miles out of my way to the next closest Vw dealership for service. I also have had to replace my tires on this car twice. My car started to get super noisy at 21k miles & I took it in to the dealership & an independent repair shop to make sure I was getting the same story. My tires were feathering and cupping on the inside. I finally replaced the tires at 34k miles & had an alignment performed. Sure enough 8k miles later the noise was back. same problem my tires were feathering & cupped. Finally 5k miles later after I couldn't take the noise, I replaced the tires again and I also had another alignment. It gets better.. The day I pick my car up from service my engine light comes on. Back to the dealership again... This time its the Intake Control Valve/Intake Manifold. In the 2 1/2 years I have owned this car it has been in the shop more then I have driven it. & my last minor issues is the bulbs in the tail lights seem to go out continuously. I actually keep replacement bulbs in my trunk. I have also had to replace a headlamp bulb!
