What is this discussion about?
Volkswagen Passat, Wagon
#1913 of 1941 2000 Volkswagen Passat GLS 4Motion Wagon
Apr 18, 2009 (4:31 pm)
Interested in ANY feedback...
We are a family of four (two young boys) and really like the practicality of the above stated vehicle but I have never owned a VW (ok, I did have a '72 Westfalia back in the day) and need to be $ conscious (both now and with regard to future repairs).
So..the specs: 97k miles, Black clothe interior, 4WD, ABS, 2.8L, CC, A/C, Tiptronic Auto Transmission, power windows and locks, sun roof and luggage rack.
clean title, no accidents and clear car fax. Body in excellent condition, inside is very clean. Seller is asking $4900...
Anyhow, like I said, I could really use some advice.
Thanks in advance!
btw, what does CC mean??

As an option, "CC" usually means cruise control.

CC is almost certainly cruise control (I can't think of anything else it would be).
We have a GLX 2000 4motion Passat wagon (that's a higher trim level) that we bought used about 4 years ago and we have really loved it.It's very comfortable and convenient for us and our toddler now, and the drivers seat adjusts nicely to both me and my husband although he is 6'4" and I am 5'2". We have had a couple of expensive fixes (catalytic converter, new timing belt, valve cover gaskets) this year which weren't great for our budget but to be expected considering the age of the car, so keep that in mind for budgeting. You will also need to budget for all regular maintenance if you want to keep it going, VWs don't thrive well on neglect.
Take a long test drive and see how comfortable you feel with it, look at the maintenance and repair records of the current owner, and have an independent mechanic with VW experience check it out to see if any big fix seems pending. For price, see what Edmunds True Market Value appraiser thinks.
Good luck with your decision!

thanks, that makes sense. But I've seen something about VW Passat CC, is this something that just describes the model?

Thanks for the input. It sure is a nice driving vehicle. Going to have my mechanic look at it monday.

You are right. It means "Comfort Coupe."
Sometimes it is listed as a separate model and sometimes it is considered a trim level of the Passat.
Edmunds lists it as a separate model (see link), but further confusing whether it is a Passat or a separate model is this introduction to Edmunds' review at that same link:
The 2009 Volkswagen Passat CC is not a Passat for the hearing-impaired. Instead, the name stands for Comfort Coupe, but it's not a Passat coupe either -- it has four full doors. No, the CC is a sleeker, restyled version of VW's midsize sedan, intended for folks who want something more stylish and different than the typical family four-door. What's in a name, anyway?
Hope this helps. A little.

Does anyone know if you can get a replacement wheel emblem which is missing on my new 03' Passat wagon that I just bought?
