Thanks for the info...now I realize about the 2 different tech packages, so guess this is the older one as well.....so their current offer of $34 and change is too high.....figured as much on the either or for the cash back / financing...my credit union is a bit higher than yours, but still lower than what I have heard so far, so will double check that......

$34k for the VR6 is only a ~$7500 reduction from MSRP. They need to add $500-1000 to that number. Shop around as I found some dealers had better deals than others.

#79 of 112 EPA MPG difference '09 vs '10
Aug 30, 2009 (3:10 pm)
Was walking the lots today and noticed that the '10 CC Sport sticker said 22city/31hwy. The '09 Sport was 19city/29hwy. That is a huge difference. Same engine and tranny. EPA didn't change computations since '08. Does anyone know why this would be???

Yep. Go back and check the '09 against the '10. According to my dealer, the '10 has these changes: badging where there was none; a touch screen radio vs. buttons; AND the DSG transmission in place of the 6 speed automatic.
However, there is one other possibility. It got retested. Following other forums, the average combined mileage is about 29 mpg. Some have gotten highway of upwards of 37 mpg with 26 mpg around town for '09 models. I've had an ongoing similar experience where I'm getting a tank rang reading of 585 miles at fill up. If it's 18 gallons of fuel, dividing 585 by 18 gets me 32.5 mpg average.
I'm guessing you looked at auto trannies. So, I'm going with my first shot. As for the DSG tranny, based on all of the recent recalls, no thanks. I would kind of like the badges though as I'm bloody well sick of people standing by my car asking me what the heck it is.

Aha. It's probably the DSG as you point out. I did notice the DSG as an option listed on the sticker and forgot that the 09 had the 6 speed auto. Didn't realize it would make that big of difference in MPG. I kind of agree about the DSG. Concerns about it's long term viability have been voiced quite a bit even before the recent recall.

First, most 2010 VW's get a better mileage, mainly because of better programming of the engine.
Specifically regarding CC - 2010 CC 2.0T gets DSG transmission, which is much more efficient
#83 of 112 Any good deals recently on 2009 2.0T?
Jan 04, 2010 (8:09 am)
I went by my local dealer and they have two 2009 (one sport, one lux) 2.0s available. I'm curious if anyone has purchased a 2009 recently, and if so, what kind of price were you able to negotiate. I'm not interested in leasing, just finance or outright purchase.
I've already seen a new 2010 recently advertised at another VW dealership for $3850 off of MSRP, so I have to think an '09 would be discounted down to $5K or $6K off of MSRP.
Please share your experience.
I know the VR6s were heavily discounted recently; I'm interested only in the 2.0. Thanks in advance.

Just bought a 2010 Iron Grey CC Sport 2.0T DSG AT with black leather, with iPod Integration ($199), mats, and chrome tips ($299). With $800 Destination, sticker was $30,158. They worked with me down to $27,600, + TTL. Financed at 1.9%. I am satisfied. They had sold 4 the day I was there.
#85 of 112 Year End Discounts?
Feb 12, 2010 (7:30 pm)
Hey guys I'm looking to buy a new car at the end of the year and I want to start my "homework"asap. I'm hoping you guys remember what kinds of discounts were available for the CC at the end of 2009. I think Luxury + NAV is going to be the trim I want.
