Volkswagen CC Problems

Carbon Build Up

2012 VW CC R Line, 2.0L Turbo 4cyl

First had the carbon build up issue at 34,500 miles. Under warranty, error codes showed malfunctions in the intake manifold. Warranty replaced the manifold. I was required to pay for the carbon build-up cleaning.

Then AGAIN at 56,000 miles, car sluggish and showing signs again of the Carbon build up. Taken to dealership on other issues and they scraped the car's internal parts showing me the gunk ...

No Start after Refueling and Popping Noise from Trunk

Popping sounds from the rear of the vehicle may be heard moments after starting the engine, or when slowing to a stop. This noise is from the leak detection pump filling the fuel tank with air, and releasing to retest the system when it finds a fault. The sequence of faults identifying this issue are as follows:

  • Succession of loud pops from rear of vehicle
  • Pops go away, and fuel economy decreases 
  • Check engine light illuminates
  • OBD trouble code P2404 and/or P0441 is stored
  • Engine will not start after refueling (must crank for over 30 seconds)
  • Vibration when slowing to a stop

The cause is a valve which is mounted on the front of the intake manifold, commonly called the N80 valve, or EVAP system purge valve. The valve is designed to open under specific circumstances, but a worn valve will remain open at all times, preventing the pressurization of the fuel tank. 

Correction of the issue is to replace the N80 valve with the latest revision. 

Careful - Bluetooth system malfuntions

I can be in the middle of a call on my bluetooth through my car and the car will drop the call mid sentence at random. My phone still has the call on it and I have to wait for the car to reconnect itself. They have a very short list of compatible phones so if you buy one, make sure your phone is on the list! All this technology and they have a list of 20 phones! WHAT?

At 63K miles my engine is ruined because the tensioner came extremely loose. I purchased this vehicle and have driven it 20K in 2 years. I find it unbelievable that I have to put another engine in this vehicle for a cost of $5K. What is the manufacture willing to do?

Finally purchased versado noir tires for this vehicle and th...
