It does look like a decent deal. However, the Doc fee is high and the only fee truly required is the destination fee. Other fees are applied via the dealership.
I have never paid a doc fee when I have leased 3 cars. If there is a doc fee, I understand the dealer needs some money, but $205 is really high. But, I would hate for the dealership to lose a deal over a doc fee. It comes down to principal, and they are already getting a deal from the cost of the car. The Doc fee is just frosting on the cake.
I would jump on this deal, however work on that doc fee. At this time, the dealership needs to be thankful they have people wanting to buy from them. Asking for more hand outs such as this is very unprofessional.

Oct 12, 2009 (4:14 pm)
I just bought a CC. Love It!! was planning on a passat, but once i drove the 6cyl CC i had to have it. It makes the old Passat body look so well Vanillia. Sorry Passat. So on to my question. I had the hands free installed and it works and sounds beautifully. I have had issues with other cars. Either it sounds like crap in the car or the person you are talking to thinks you sound like crap. The problem is this mysterious fourth button. I am reffering to the "phone" button on the left side of the nav display. It does mute the radio, but I refuse to believe this is its only purpose. I just took my car to the dealer for my courtesy checkup and no one there could tell me it's function. I am not surprised since I am in NW Arkansas. This dealer has sold 3 CC's in 6 months. I have been cruising Vw sites and boards trying to solve this mystery. What makes it even more frustrating is that nobody ever brings this up. The "tech" guy at the dealership looked like he was 15. At this point I probobally am more familiar with the operational controls of this cars than anyone at the 3 dealerships I have gone too.

After driving the old body style i had to have the CC. Yes the ride can be a bit sharp. but i just attribute that to the feel of the road. I went for the 6cyl. I ended up paying 45k in all, but well worth it. After having this car for 8 months I still have not seen another on the road. If you cant afford a C class Merc or and Audi this is the car to have. No maint for 3 years certanly sweetened the deal. I live in NW Arkansas, and this geography is about as close to Germany as I'll get. I love driving this car!! I must hear from people in parking lots etc.. "Thats a Volkswagen?" all the time. The 09 comes naked, absolutly no badging at all. Only the VW on the front and back. Deosnt say pasat or cc and that makes people wonder even more.

I bought the CC , and only 4 seats was a selling point. I dont want to haul around everyone. My dogs go to the vet in the Toureg, no kids to haul to soccer, so I liked the 4 seats. This is a car to road trip in for a couple, toss some bags in the trunk and off you go. Plus if you have a chance look at the hump on the rear floor, i think this is a result of the low body stance. Much lower than the old body passat.

That's $1935 UNDER invoice on a 2010 model. How did you manage that? Didn't think there were any extra incentives on the 2010 models yet. Did you wind up leasing it?

Does the $351 lease payment include taxes?

#133 of 363 2010 VW CC Sputter
Oct 28, 2009 (6:41 am)
I use the term "Sputter" loosely becasue I have no other way to describe it. I recently purchased a new 2010 VW CC Sport (2.0T). I have had the car only for 3 days now but I noticed something strange.
If you take off from a dead stop and just let go of the break, do not apply any pressure on the accelerator, and the car feels like it "sputters". For those who have driven a manual car before, imagine letting go of the clutch without giving it sufficient gas, you'll produce this engine "sputter". Funny thing is that if you look at the RPM gauge and it doesn't move. You can also feel this car sputter/shake if you do the same thing going in reverse.
Of course I became concerned with this and took the car immediately back to the dealer. When I got to the dealer the service agent made me take a test drive with a mechanic. As soon as I put the car in gear and took off he acknowledged what I felt. So then they bought out the service manager. He told me that he has the same vehicle and experiences the same thing in his car.
He claims that it has to do with the type of transmission DSG. He allowed me to test drive to other CCs. One of the CCs had only about 40 miles and another with about 5K miles, and both vechiles did the same thing.
I was just wondering if anyone else experienced the same issue or had any thoughts?
