Volkswagen CC Vibration and noise due to tires
Volkswagen CC Problem
Average Mileage: 23,967 mi (1,300 mi - 49,875 mi)
The CC Sport is being sold with Continental Tires which are run flats. These caused a terrible vibration in my new CC. The dealer attempted many times to balance the tires with no success. They replaced them with non run flat continental tires which made the vibration worse. After a long battle with the dealerhip, they agreed to replace the tires with another brand which solved the problem. The tires they had to put on my CC are $276.00 each so if you find yourself having a vibration, it is probably the tires. Be prepared to fight to get new ones because the tires are not covered under the car warranty.

Tires cupped badly, VW agreed to replace tires at 20K service and then they cupped again within 8K miles. I wrote a letter to the CEO and I am not sure it even reached the CEO because I was contacted by a Katie Fox. I had tons of issues with their customer care people and that's why I wrote the letter. They wouldn't admit the REAL PROBLEM IS THE CARS SUSPENSION. Well, they ended up sending their regional ASE certified Master Technician to work on my car who stated VW KNOWS about this issue and the engineers are trying to fix the car AFTER I had been told several times by the customer care team they blame the tires! I replaced the original tires with a completely different tire the 1st time and the issue was just as bad, IT IS NOT THE TIRES AND I SAY THIS TO HELP THOSE WHO ARE BEING MISS LED BY VW! I believe I may be one person who managed to take this as far as it can go, I received a lovely $2000 check towards another VW. Unfortunately when they do that your current cars information is all over the letter, VIN# and all! If you want to trade out of your car you then need to hand this letter to the dealer your trading it into and explain why you have compensation for the vehicle your trading, how humiliating is that? Completely uncomfortable position to put your customer in and $2000 towards another VW does not even begin to make up for all the trouble, time and heart ache I have experienced with this car in just 30,000 miles! It has been a noisy obnoxious ride for all but 5000 miles of the 30,000 miles I have driven it over 2.5 years:( They couldn't even admit it was not the tires but the car, so many other people are going through the same experience and being told its the tires even after they have completely different tires and have the same issue. I threw the voucher away and bought another car, I will never buy VW again and my whole family are VW owners. They have completely lost me and my family as customers for life.
Tires scalloped...dealer says I need alignment...research indicates that saclloping rarely is the result of bad alignment, but more likely ball joints, wheel bearings, etc. We will see how it gets resolved.

A mild vibration in all speeds, increasing over 60 m.p.h.
Problem notified to VW the third day of owned the CC. The dealer installed new tires but the problem persists. A great customer service from VW, but frustrated with my CC. I loved the car, not the suspension.

Inside of rear tires were feathered. The tires were rotated to the front and made even more noise. I took the car to a tire specialist who "trued" the tires by shaving off the high spots which cured the noise problem. I then had a front and rear wheel alignment and everything is fine for the time being.
