Volkswagen CC Problems

Suspension & Steering -- monkeytoesbme and 14 others

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 e...

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

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.

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?

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Both of my back windows leak when it rains or even worse if I wash it. It has been to the shop 5 times for repair and they haven't been able to get them to stop leaking yet. It is an obvious design flaw. I would like to see VW recall this and get it fixed!

Body, Interior & Misc., April 8, 2009

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.

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.

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.

I have a 2012 VW CC, which is one year old, and mechanically I have not had any real issues. I did have a tire pressure sensor go bad, but that was repaired. I rotate my tires every 5K and they are wearing perfectly. I have not had to balance the tires as there is absolutely no vibration to warrant that need. In years past with other cars I have had I have had to balance my tires at every rotation. I am amazed with the VW.

My real issue has been with plastic on plastic squeaks in the center console. After many attempt so repair my console squeaks, I now have dash squeaks that replace the console squeaks. The squeaks are improved, but not perfect, and I do have concern they will return and might be weather related. If not for these squeaks I'd have a perfect car. If the squeaks return I am going to have to play hard ball on this issue.
