Great car with some drawbacks
By Fielder on


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


An exceptionally beautiful car - very disinctive. I think it's better looking than the Mercedes CLS. It's also nice that you don't see many on the road.

Favorite Features

Quality materials. Love the two-tone interior which gives the car a wow factor. Perfect balance of sport and everyday comfort.

Suggested Improvements

Ready guys?? There is a hesitation when starting which is not appropriate in any class. The executive who approved the wasted back seat space should be fired. The required use of 91 octane stinks: around here, that's 50 cents more a gallon, or about $7 extra a fill-up. A regular push button start.

I do agree that it would be helpful for some to make a "3-in-a-pinch" back seat an option. Personally, I like the one in the car just fine. Do you drive "two-footed?" The accelerator will not work if your foot is even slightly on the brake. Other than that, I don't experience the hesitation you mentioned. After much research, I found that the "requirement" for premium is wording that VW uses to get the horsepower/torque ratings they want out of this engine. You certainly can use regular and the difference in performance is negligible. It will not in any way damage your engine as all modern engines have "knock sensors" to prevent this.
