2009 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)
I traded in a 98 Passat w/ manual transmission. Having owned it for 10 yrs, you can imagine how much I enjoyed the drive. The 09 Passat CC is amazing. It looks great and brings a smile to your face while driving it. It has the solid VW build and all the German engineering that you would expect. The tiptronic transmission w/ "S" gear is fun but not quite as exhilarating as a true manual experience. But, wow, what a car. I bought the true Sport version without any added options offered on the Luxury version. It really has everything you need for a nice ride.
4-cylynder Turbo engine, exterior looks, fun to drive experience, large trunk, German engineering, interior layout.
Only two - 1) having dual climate controls would be nice. 2) having universal garage door button would be preferred. Both these are offered standard on the Luxury model.
