2011 Volkswagen CC VR6 4Motion Executive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I purchased a 2011 V6 4 motion 2 weeks ago after trading in my 2008 Audi TT coupe. I initially considered: BMW 328i sedan, 335i sedan, 335d sedan, Mercedes c300. Almost purchased the BMW 335, but was told by a service manager that reliability wasn't great and frankly the interior was poor considering the price. The Volkswagen is a great compromise between a sporty car and a great interior if thats what you are looking for. I chose the V-4 4 motion mostly because of the extra HP, AWD, and the alternate 6sp transmission compared to the 4cyl with DSG. My Audi had the same 200 HP/DSG, and i HATED that trans. It was great for MPG, but what a jerky ride and mechanical problems. I love the VW >Audi


Favorite Features

Navi can be used while driving, free Sirus traffic for 6 months, MP3 player connection displays song title Vs my Audi just listed Track 1--1000, retractable rear window shade, good moon roof (tilts only), excellent seats for all passengers, full size spare (no expensive run flatss) large trunk, rear view camera for parking- its actually very easy to park considering the size( its the same size as my wife's Infiniti Fx35), i have a compact spot and fit with no problem. The 4 motion is AMAZING in rain, V-6 feels much more powerful compared to the 4cyl, be ready for poor city fuel economy 15-17 MPG.


Suggested Improvements

Longer standard warranty, only 3 yrs, 360000 miles, at least it included free service. I purchased an extended warranty with VW for 1600 for 6 yrs.750000 miles. Reliability has yet to be tested (2 weeks old only).

2011 Volkswagen CC Sport PZEV 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Had the car for 4 years, and have about 80K miles on it. Its a pleasure to drive - when everything is working correctly - and that's the issue. I've had to replace the steering column lock, have the heads cleaned, and several other lesser items - but these are things that should not crop up until the car has well over 100K miles. So.. Its expensive to maintain. I've also learned that its fragile. I put it into a snow bank at the bottom of the driveway - going about 8 miles/hour. the damages are in excess of $4K. To me that means its fragile. I've enjoyed driving it, but am about to replace it in order to obtain a more cost-effective vehicle.


Favorite Features

Handling, ride, looks.


Suggested Improvements

Needs fog lights.

2011 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

Good value but transmission is all wrong. Shift points in drive mode vs. sport mode are too extreme - drive mode shifts very low (~2200rpm) and in sport mode pretty high (~4500rpm). The transmission disengages when at a complete stop and there is a lag for it to re-engage. Also, when starting from a complete stop with the steering wheel turned it becomes very jerky - as if it is in sport mode.


Favorite Features

Good value, looks, fit and finish.


Suggested Improvements

Trash the DSG transmission - maybe consider the manual or another car - painful to drive.

2011 Volkswagen CC Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 6AM)


Review

I've owned this car for 4 months now and still find it fun to drive... For a 4-banger, it sure drives like a 6. VW sure has a winner in the CC. Biggest problems... Being a heavy set 6th guy, it's a pain to get in/out of car. Other than that, it's worth it. I'm looking forward to taking it for a long trip to gage its comfort for long distance driving. Haven't had it for too long, so reliability at this point is kinda moot.


Favorite Features

Audio system, Bluetooth streaming, quite drive, acceleration when on turbo mode, overall mpg, standard leatherette not bad at all, trunk space.


Suggested Improvements

Raise the door section to let driver's left hand rest comfortably. Remote start, air condition takes forever to cool, improve blind spots, larger sunglass holder, home link standard. Improve low end torque, improve tires to reduce noise level even more

Review

Where do I begin? Let's start with; I've never had a new vehicle with so many problems. The power steering pump needed to be replaced after the first year. The water pump was just replaced due to leakage. The transmission, as everyone else said, is comparable to my dad's 1990 VW Golf (non-turbo) diesel when it comes to performance. Slap it in the manual shift mode and it's much better. The speedometer is 5 miles per hour off (shows you're going faster). This means your mileage adds up a bit faster if you do the math. Faulty tail lights. Can't wait to get rid of it.


Favorite Features

Handles excellent in turns.
