I own a 2010 CC bought new which has had multiple problems in and out of warranty. The engine flywheel had to be replaced because of a noise with my manual transmission. My intake manifold was replaced once under warranty and again later out of warranty because of a sensor failure. Despite using only premium fuel, the engine valves needed to be cleaned manually after two different types of induction cleaning failed. The main engine seal then went and flooded my transmission. This meant that I needed to fix the seal and change the clutch. Now I am unable to fill the gas tank with fuel because the venting system failed and the car is currently in the shop getting a new gas tank. And yes, I've also had the problem with tires that cup and start making noises.
2009 cc lux 2 litre turbo bought new. Now > 4 years, with 53K on odometer. Only issues - Each rear bulb (4) needed replacement - easy enough to do thankfully. Interesting that after replacing with aftermarket bulbs no burnout issues. Also had one front headlight replaced by dealer @ $40. Original Continental tires (self sealing) became very noisy with wear and needed replacement at 40K. Replaced with Michelins and highly recommend for quieter, better ride and handling. Otherwise a solid car and a pleasure to get into and drive (when I can get it away from wife).
Like one of the previous posters, I love my 2010 CC but find that I am CONSTANTLY replacing bulbs on this car. During my warranty period, the dealer often took care of them but now that I'm out of warranty, I'm on my own. I have a headlight (dip beam?) that is out. I made my appointment on Friday for service on Monday. Over the weekend, a brake light and another rear light went out. And that has been the story of this car. Fix one and another goes out and then another. Are the bulbs that bad or is this a symptom of the electrical system?
I bought my CC new in February of 2010 and it now has 136,000 miles on it. It is a blast to drive, has great power and handles like a jewel. I have had a major issue with the tires thought. I am now on my sixth set of tires. I have had three different types of tires installed, I've had it aligned three times. The car drives and handles great but with each set the tires start to howl like mud grips after the second rotation. This is a company vehicle and I'm required to follow the manufacturers suggested maintenance so the tires have been rotated every 10,000 miles with the oil. This is very frustrating because I love driving this car.
You fall in love with the styling, then you discover the reality of the mechanical side, over time. Overall, quite good to date. Bought my CC Sport with std. 2.0T 6-spd. A/T used with under 10K for a good price. Aside from the suspension which jars you awake over sharp bumps and a persnickety heater, the car has driven and performed extremely well. Those with automatics will want to check with the dealer for a flow value fix that apparently corrects the very low speed repetitive lurching particularly from a stop to slow acceleration. Just had it done today, will report back. Std. Continental tires seem to be wearing a bit fast, tho evenly. Overall, it's one sexy head-turner... and cheaper than a mistress.
Before i got my cc i had a 05 jetta and i never had to replace the tail lights but after having my cc for 6 months the right tail light went out the dealership charged me $40 bucks to replace it then about 2 days after that the left one went out so i went to auto zone and bought bulbs for like $5 bucks and fixed it my self and now about 3 months later the right one is out again im really not sure what the problem is and why they are burning out so fast but its pretty annoying also just recently my airbag light came on i have no idea why ive never been in an accident or messed with the motor
After 10,000 miles on my 2010 CC, the car acted like it was in neutral after making a right turn. I took it in and they said there was some kind of recall. After having 19,000 miles on it, it happened again. This time they told me they forgot to set a transmission factory setting. Having the car now a year and a half (30,000 miles) I was told my front tires needed to be replaced and that I needed an alignment. Less than a month later, my battery died (they only cover up to 24,000 miles). Now I've noticed that when I'm driving on a curve it feels like my back end is not following behind me (feels like it wiggles or something). This is the most I've spent on a car and couldn't be more disappointed.
Have had my 2010 CC for 15 mos...tires are ruined. At the 20K rotation, I was told no unusual wear (they did not show me, just told me...they also did not make that note on their report). At 30K rotation I was told that I had uneven wear and needed all four wheels aligned, but not to worry, I had plenty of tread, but my car was going to be noisy for awhile!!! The car now sounds like a tank. Upon some independent research and homework I have eliminated all elements that I can find to blame this wear (cupped tires, all four inside) on alignment. Actually had an alignment (on machine) and was told I did not need an alignment, it was a suspension problem. So I went to a suspension expert...no suspension problem, only junk tires. VW Dealer would not perform an alignment evaluation (to generate a report) unless I paid for it, but told me that I absolutely needed all 4 wheels aligned. (The wear pattern does not support). Long story short, after days and hours of my personal time, the neutral parties have concluded that these tires are not spec'd properly for this vehicle. This will be a battle I am sure. Next...worst HVAC system I have ever had in a car. If it's really cold out, it takes forever for the vehicle to heat up. Once it's there, it's fine. Fun car to drive until it turned into a tank.
If you are thinking about getting a VW CC Sport. Insist they put tires on the vehicle that are not Continental. My car had 3 sets within 3 months because the Continental does not work with this car. We test drove other CC and they all had the same vibration at highway speed! Make sure your cell phone is on the list of compatiable phones. Their list is short and if you have problems, that is their first excuse instead of fixing it. I know this sounds strange but on your test drive if you are serious about this car, insist they take it through a car wash and make sure the back windows don't leak. Both of mine do and they can't get it fixed. Design flaw, I am sure! The braking system is the best I have ever had! Stops on a dime with total control. I have a manual 6 speed which is so much fun to drive but it takes a bit to get the turbo to kick in and then there are some serious hesitations in it. The heater seems to have one temp, HOT! There isn't much difference between the cold and hot. I haven't had it checked but it might be broke too. Use extreme caution when puchasing this vehicle. If you have problems VW of America is great with excuses but terrible about fixing the problem. I bought mine June 14, 2010, and it has been in the shop for repair 35 days.
