I purchased a 2009 Passat new and I have had many problems with this vehicle. I have had to repair and replace the throttle several times, had a fuel injection several times, replaced the intake manifold 14 months ago and now I am being told that the intake manifold needs replacing AGAIN. This is a $900.00 repair for the second time. I have complained to the dealership, and customer service to be told that I have too many miles on my vehicle. OMG!!!! I can't get any satisfaction. Does anyone else have this problem, repeated repairs? I think my car is a lemon!!!

Sounds like we have the same problems. My car also stuttered and loss acceleration. I have been paying for repeated repairs for almost two years. First, it was the throttle and fuel injection. I had to repair the throttle for several times and finally had to pay to have it replaced. Last year, I had to pay for the intake manifold to be replaced---13 months later, the intake manifold needs to be replaced again. OMG!!! I purchased my 2009 Passat new and I have had one repair after another. It's a lemon!!!!

Yes!! Many people are having the sane problem if your symptoms are the same as mine with EPC&CHECK ENGINE LIGHT appearing in conjunction with A Loss of acceleration!! GOOGLE: EPC LIGHT 2009 VW CC
ALSO loss of acceleration is a MAJOR safety issue! I loss power on the diamond lane and almost got rear ended and side swiped trying to exit it bcuz I could not pick up any power to merge over! Contact a consumer Lemon law attorney immediately to file a claim. Each Lemon Law varies from state to state so the consumer lemon law attorney will let you know if your claim is accepted , which it SHOULD BE!! I'm still waiting to see if this problem is exclusive to 2009's ONLY because I have NEVER had these problems with my last 3 previously owned USED and NEW Passats dating back to 2000!! UGHHHH! GOOD LUCK!

I had a 2009 CC and it was in for service 8 times in less than 2 yrs. Most of the time it was the check engine light, but also the car would sometimes shake badly while driving down the road. One time the car shook and black smoke came out of the exhaust. I finally said enuf! Unfortunately I didn't file under lemon law. Instead I let the dealership talk me into a new lease on a 2011 CC. Altho this car isn't nearly as bad as the 09 it has stalled in traffic a few times. Also the acceleration is terrible, the car seems to hesitate before moving. When you are trying to get thru an intersection, you expect the car to move when you press the gas. Instead there is a hesitation and then you "burn rubber" when the car finally moves! Embarrassing! No more VW's for me.

I also have a 2009 CC Lux. I had the same problem at around 45K with the EPC and check engine light and loss of acceleration. And I also had the intake manifold issue. That said, The EPC and check engine light resolved itslef and has not re-occurred. I parked in the garage overnight, and in the morning all was well. I looked on the floor of the garage and saw 2 round soot markson the floor. I called VW ant the mechanic told me that the EPC had caused improper fuel burn and had accumulated the soot in the turbo. As a result the lossof power was due to the exhaust clogging up. Once the car sat for awhile the waste gates vented causing the soot, and the car has been fine since. He explained that while these cars say recommended premium gas, they should say required. And Premium gas should be top tier gas like Shell, Chevron, Texaco etc and not Arco or other bottom dollar gas vendors. Also try to see if youcan get ethanol free premium once in awhile.

Hello dave98, It is currently 5/14/2013 as a write this. I see your post was in 2010 so Im sure it has been resolved by now. We just had an issue with our 2009 cc that revved into our own garage door without notice. The whole front end was smashed as well as our garage door. Please let me know what the issue was with your car if you were able to find out.
