I have a 2009 CC - 4 cyl manual trans. I noticed about 3 months after owning it, there was some "coughing / sputtering" softly underfoot when stopped at a light. Very intermittent mild hesitation that went away in a few days, but the occassional sputter while stopped at the light continued. NUMEROUS complaints to dealer: 1) said it was nothing, 2) said it was the throttle sensor error as if I had just stalled the car (well, I hadn't "just" stalled it, but had stalled about a handful of times since owning), 3) then finally said the throttle valve motor was occasionally sticking - replaced the motor about a 3 weeks ago and it has been fine! (although I have fortunately not stalled the car since, too). Hope this helps.

I have a 2009 CC 4 cyl manual. If I purchase methanol free gasoline, I get a few MPG higher. I commute 26 miles one-way to work - mostly highway and interstate 50-70 mph: I will average up to 34 mpg in the morning (no a/c) and about 28-30 mpg in the afternoon (a/c cranked + heavier traffic). Around town (small town), I will get more like 27-29 mpg. If I put the cruise on the "sweet spot" of about 55-60 mph, I can get up to 38 mpg - any faster or slower, mpg drops.

Scamp479 did you ever receive an answer this issue i too am looking to add this feature especially after reading it in the owners manual. I did talked with the dealership and they say they are not allowed to activate the key, it is only authorized in Germanay, but they said it is often done by outside sources. i have yet to find anyone that knows how to program the key to perform this funciton

I, too, have a 2010 CC - 4 cyl manual trans. I am noticing a slight sputter/light shaking, again as mentioned almost like starting to stall.
I have not stalled my car in the month I've had it, so that has not caused it. I am going to see if it gets worse over the next little while and also try to notice if it happens at particular times. I may put a call to the dealer that I think something is up and see what they have to say.

#162 of 349 VW CC - Maintenance Agreement Questions
Dec 06, 2009 (6:32 pm)
My wife and I just purchased our third VW. On Saturday, my wife picked up a 2009 VW CC VR6 at a steep discount as it was the last 2009 VR6 the dealer had. It was 10K off MSRP.
At the closing table, after much back and forth, we agreed to get the extended maintenance agreement. This is the VW-backed Extended Vehicle Protection Plan: Platinum Coverage. We got it for $1750 with 0% financing over 18 months with the right to cancel it w/o any penalty in the first 30 days. The first offer on the warranty was at $2500. I don't know how much lower they'd have gone, but I think that was near "bottom."
I am wondering what experiences others have had with this program. If there's a specific VW forum for this, please let me know. I looked but couldn't find one. Looking at what it does not cover (brake pads, rotors, cv boots), those are the major things we had fail during the ownership of our 1999 V6 Passat (which we are keeping -- 150K miles...still going strong).
The finance guy, whose been with this dealer for over 10 years, said he'd seen a number of cases where the warranty had paid for half-shaft replacement after CV boot failure. But normally, if the axle had not failed, the replacement of the boot would be my issue. Of course, in the past, the maintenance people always just recommended replacement the entire half-shaft rather than just the boot. Has anyone on this board had a half-shaft replaced under this warranty after a CV joint failed when the boot had broken? It's just that I see this item as something we might actually get replaced under this warranty, so that's why I am curious.
Outside of these questions, the wife LOVES the CC. It really is a hot looking car, and she was already turning heads today when she was out on the road. We had been looking at Audi and Infiniti, but we got such a deal on this VR6, we couldn't pass it up. Yeah, it's a 2009 and not a 2010, but it's got everything she wanted. It DOES NOT have NAV or backup camera, but she's fine with that.
Anyway, thanks for your help.

My first cc luxury was totaled with just 1800 miles on it. It was parked in our attached garage when a drunk driver drove up our driveway and through our garage door. We live on a cul-de-sac in the country. Go figure. If I could sent pictures I would. The front of our car was push through the back wall of our garage into our family room. We also had a 1998 z3 parked in the garage. It also took a bit of a beating. We have since had the house and bmw repaired and have replaced the cc with a new 2009 cc luxury model. When we purchased the new cc there was an additional $2000 incentive so that was something good that came out of this mess.
We enjoy the cc and have not had any problems with this vehicle or the other before the wreck.
