We didn't trade. My wife's old ride is a 1999 VW Passat GLS V6. It has 150,000 miles on it, and we opted to keep it as our airport car since VW wasn't going to give us much more than $500 in trade for it. I use it now for local trips and keep my Expedition for weekends, road trips, and Home Depot.
We got the 10K discount because the car was a 2009 model that had been on the lot for the whole year with no takers and the dealer wanted to move it before the end of the year. It was also the only VR6 CC on the lot. The price with the VR6 new gets a bit too high for a lot of buyers considering the CC with the 2.0T starts below 30K.
The car has been great for us so far. Plus, since our warranty started the day we bought it, but the car was almost a year old, it's almost like it's had a long break-in period. Granted, it's a year old now, but we keep our cars forever practically, so it doesn't really matter. As I mentioned before, we have the 1999 Passat, and I have a 2004 Expedition. Both will be hanging around for awhile.

I think we all have our brands that we feel better about. I feel the same way about GM. But, all the brands you mentioned too are way overpriced too. Those brands are just people cars in other countries. When to us, their gold.
VW has really stepped up their brand. They have become more upscale. They have tuned their line up for their people. But, your right, going up to 40k, I would look closely at an Audi, rather than a VW. VW still has some of the best tuned shared Audi engines in them too. So, you don't always have to get an Audi.
For me, I look at BMW and see overpriced, overrated emblems. I think, it probably drives really good, but could I have just as much fun in a VW or Audi? Yes. But, thats just me. A Lexus is just a glorified Toyota, Accord-Acura, Nissan-Infiniti, VW-Audi.
Too each their own.

Didn't mean to infer you were being snobish...nuances lost in the online posting world
I tend to agree with most of what you've said...especially once the price gets to mid 40's.
While I love the CC (would have bought a 2.0T over my CPO'd IS350--wife vetoed-- 4 seats...long, sad, story) I don't see 40+K...or more accurately I'd like to see 4 rings on the grill

That's truly an outstanding price, leftover 2009 or not. I assume it had some test drive miles on it too, but even 500 miles wouldn't matter much... I would have jumped on the deal, and I applaud you for doing so.
Right now I'm curious if the 2012 Passat and CC are going to merge (for North America-- all that matters to me) because having both of them as distinct models both based on the New Midsize Sedan workstream doesn't make sense.
Honestly I don't care which it is. I just want a TDI version. If there isn't one, I'll see if the 2011 Jetta has enough room for me.
#217 of 349 2010 CC Sport DSG + Protection Kit
Jul 15, 2010 (9:30 am)
I am planning to buy the 2010 CC Sport with DSG and Protection Kit before August 6th. I have shot around for some quotes and got an offer $26,505 from MSRP $30,080. Is it a good deal? Please let me know.
I wont have the CC until August cuz I am out of the States now, so is there anyone knows that I can have better incentives in August or later this month?
Thank you ,guys

12% off MSRP is a great deal, especially if there's no incentives included in that.

Do you know if there is any incentives existing this month or August?
After viewing about 7 dealerships website, I just found one has posted they have $1250 rebates, but rest of the dealerships didn't. So I'm curious if this $1250 from the VW or just the dealer....
Any help will be appreciated!!

Got an offer of $25,615 out of $29,400. is it a good deal?

That sounds good.
I couldn't configure 29,400 (I got 30,080 with destination)...but $25.6k does seem below the invoice of about 28k
There are incentives which I assume they are applying to get that low number.
When they first came out I was offered one at invoice (price was for one at the port)...so I'd assume they could all go for invoice (especially with incentives); although Edmunds TMV does show it higher than invoice.
If they're being straight with that number...I'd jump on it

$29,400 is the base model of Sport Trim with DSG, no any other options. I found out the Mat Kit or Protection Kit is overcharged, I can have a great set of mats at much lower price than the VW's.
