#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.

And was the drunk driver repaired?

The drunk driver backed out of the garage and took off. He was caught about 4 miles away. He didn't need repairing but, I'm sure he would be happy to know that you are so concerned.

Well, ya know, repairing him might require such things as jail time, breathalyzer control on his car, payment for all damages, court ordered therapy...

Regarding post 151 - do any of the rest of you have this problem with the CC? Is this isolated or a real issue? I am going to test drive today and if this is true - it is a deal breaker. Comparing to TSX. Love the way the CC looks and love what I've read about fit / finish. Your CC's look great folks!

Really impressed with fit/ finish of the automobile. Didn't realize that free routine maintenance for first 36 months. Car felt like my old Audi TT or a 2009 MB C300 that I recently drove. I did notice a kind of sputtering at a stoplight when I let my foot off the brake. The sales rep noticed it to and said it wasn't normal. I have read a couple of posts about it and it makes me a little concerned that a car with 49 miles on the clock would do this. Hoping that he can talk to service on Monday and find out that it's nothing. Car was an automatic and had all weather mats in the trunk and the IPOD interface as far as options and they had a "no haggle" price on it of $28,756. Definitely a contender to the Acura TSX. Got it narrowed down these two for now.

I bought a CC sport MT in July and paid 25,250+TTF for a car with chrome exhaust tips, and the mat kit. I've loved having the car, but do wish I had the new radio in the 2010, but it wasn't worth waiting especially with the price the dealer was willing to do.
I know they had better prices in October/November, but oh well. If you can find a '10 without the badging on the trunk go for it!

Could you please explain the difference in the 2010 CC with and without badging on the trunk?
