The fact that she had to release the brakes and reapply them suggests the most obvious cause of unintended acceleration. She actually had put her foot on the accelerator, while intending the brake. Years ago, Audi was almost brought down by unintended acceleration, which on investigation showed that people sincerely believed they were braking (and no one could tell them otherwise). Luckily, your wife reacted quickly and tried to brake again. Most people in those situations, just jam harder on the accelerator trying to get the car to stop. Now, mind you, the Toyota problem appears to be a lot more complicated than that.

Yeah, I had the burning smell for a few days before the EPC light came on and then smoke came out of the exhaust. The car then went dead and had to be towed back to the dealership. I was tolled a sensor was burnt out in the gas tank and it was replaced. It's been over a month now since it has been fixed. I am really nervous that this might happen again soon. Other than that I do love my ride.

I had the sensor replaced but the check engine light keeps coming on then going off. I am afraid of the car smoking again so I'm looking into the Lemon Law.

#205 of 363 VW CC Flex Pipe??
Jun 02, 2010 (4:22 am)
Hello. We're leasing a 2010 VW CC 2.0 Turbo and since we've gotten it, there's been a rattle coming from the front during acceleration. We took it to the dealer and he told us it was the flex pipe. Apparently there's some sort of mesh cage around it that rattles. Has anyone heard of this problem. I'm told there's no plans for any sort of recall. Just curious. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time!

I'm going to assume you have your answer by now...
But anyway, a flex pipe is part of the exhaust system. Usually you find them on the turbocharger downpipe, but they can be elsewhere. They look like this: http://tinyurl.com/2fu87mw
They don't make noise on their own. They could allow the exhaust to move enough for a heat shield to hit something, though.
Otherwise-- rattling during exhaust often is detonation. Are you using premium fuel?

Hello everyone, need some help here. Wondering if I can get some feed back on the CC. Thinking of getting one, was wondering for all those who already have one is there any major problems with them, also what would be better 6cyl, or 2.0. Your help and input on the car would be greatly appreciated, Thanks so much Roadmaster45

I can only speak about the VR6. My wife and I have one purchased last December and she simply loves it. We never even test drove the 2.0, so I can't compare, but the VR6 is VERY fast. Good highway MPG, but city MPG is around 19 - 20. Ours is dressed up with the premium sound, bigger tires, headlights that turn with the car and go up/down on hills, real leather seats, etc. Only things we don't have are nav and AWD.
But the VR6 is a good bit more than the 2.0, so I think that would be a factor. We got an end of year discount of about 10K off the price, which is the only reason we bought it. I'd never pay close to 40K for a VW.

"I'd never pay close to 40K for a VW."
Because of the name alone? Or you don't perceive any VW up to the quality level of a $40K plus automobile?
A Camry without AWD is $35k ish...they all get up there pretty quick with options.
