It just tilts.
I think its too wide (and maybe long) to fit within the roof...and I haven't see a 'new' car stack it on top of the roof.

The lease numbers are right off the lease agreement. Northgate Lincoln Mercury/VW in Cincinnati OH. was the dealer and they were great to work with.

I have an 08 car, not VW, but it tilts above the car and out, it opens that way, rather than going inside of the car roof. See, that alone, might be a reason I wouldn't get the VW CC. I love having my roof open way too much. That really is too bad.

Found a candy white demo CC Luxury w/ tech package (rear camera) and BT at a local dealership in So Cal, had 5,000 miles. 3 Yr lease was prorated to the original 10K miles a year, so I would get 8300 miles a year. Not an issue as my commute is 6 miles round trip. Got them down to $390/month (total inc. tax, license, etc.) w/ $2000 cash.
Just before signing the contract the wife calls. Another dealership had called our home, so I walked outside and called them back. Turns out I'm glad I did. Ended up signing a lease w/ the second dealership, brand new Island Gray CC Luxury w/ tech package (rear camera), BT, and chrome tips.
Sticker right at $36K
Agreed-on price 30538
Gross cap cost 31158
$408/month for 38 months (total), 10K miles/year
So...a new instead of slightly used car, more miles available, full warranty instead of only 32 months/27K miles, and (IMO) a better color...for $18 a month more. Bonus, the dealership is next door to my wife's work, and offer free car washes for the life of the car. NIIIICE.
Car was new on the lot, so I was not able to take it home. Something about not being able to release the car dirty (and it was DIRTY!). Will pick up after work tomorrow. Very excited, quite a step up styling and amenities from my '06 Accord LX.

I have an 08 G6, I want out!! The engine sucks!! It truly does and I think the transmission is having problems. Its a 4cyl. I am trying to think of all the options that I could use to get out with minimal problems. I know about trade in and pay off, its been a year into my lease. So, I'll probably just have to wait. It makes me mad!
It will be nice once they offer the DSG on the new CC, it will really add some zip. I took out a Jetta 2.0T, and I wanted that car soooo bad!! But, I leased the Jetta SE for my mother and guess what I had to choose? Yep, the dealer sold Pontiac, so they put me in a G6. I had limited credit last year, so they ran 2 leases at the same time,
VW and GM. VW would not let me have 2 cars. I was very upset about this too, I traded my 06 Accord for the VW. Anyway. I'm over it, but want out badly.
Let me know if you guys can think of anything to help me out. realistically and practically.

Went to Royal Motors in the City and they're very professional.
1K Down for 2.0 automatic
400 per month (tax included)
36 month lease/12K miles
5K waiver, blue tooth, chrome tips, satellite radio.
Went to Boardwalk on the Peninsula and let's just say I got outta there fast.
My last (2) cares we're the Audi A4/BMW 3 series
#48 of 112 Lease vs Buy
Jun 04, 2009 (8:58 pm)
Does anybody buy cars any more? All this lease discussion is interesting, but of no help to me. For example, when folks state a "price" in their discussion about leasing, can anybody actually buy at that "price", or is that a deal factor in the lease agreement. If I go in and offer $5K US below MSRP, will the dealer collapse in laughter, or is that a reasonable start to negotiate from? Buying in central NC if it matters. Trying to decide between a CC for family cruiser and a Sportwagen TDI for my DD. I don't want to steal a car, but I don't want the dealer to throw a big party on my dime, either.

Take a look here on Edmunds for current market pricing on new VW's. It will state fair asking prices for dealers.
Leasing will be cheaper, but keep your downpayment low or better yet $0 down on a lease. Depends on how long you keep your cars, how much you drive.
However, apparently TDI's do not have any special offers available through leasing.
VW is offering better leasing on the CC, but I really do not see any "really good" lease deals on any VW now.
They had a much better lease on their line up last year, now why they aren't offering anything now... hopefully they are not holding on too tight.

Yeah, I know what you mean about the different leasing numbers people give and the relevance another buying situation. Theoretically, if people are leaseing with a gross capital coss of 5K less than MSRP, you should be able to buy for the same. In practice, the buy price will usually be several hundred dollars higher because dealers make money from the leaseing companies they select. But you still get a feel for the going price by looking at the lease info.
Every dealer determines the price differently based on their perception of their inventory levels ("floor" in dealer speak) , how quickly they can replenish inventory, local demand for the model, whether you look like you can be "moved", etc..
"Best" deal comes from knowing what you want (car, options, color, etc.) and calling or emailing multiple dealers in the area. Don't spend hours with anyone dealer negotiating, it won't do any good because the guy with deal approval authority, is never the one you're talking too. You will very rarely talk them down and even if you do, it costs you when you need special attention from service.
For instance, I leased a CC for $20 less a month from a dealer who traded the higher priced dealer for my car. The higher priced dealer salesman insisted (through 4 days of multiple emails and phone calls) there was no way anyone would do my deal ($399/mo. 36mo. 15kmi.). My dealer did the deal and the window sticker showed the original purchasing dealer as the higher priced dealer.
