#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?

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.
Feb 12, 2010 (7:38 pm)
"Sign & drive" lease or 1.9% financing. There were some $1,500 discounts on 2009 models. That's about it on the CC from memory.

I bought my CC for about $27,800.00 w/out any trade on a $30,300 sticker.. (I already swapped it for a Tiguan too) The CC, while a great car, hasn't caught on as everyone thought it would. VW wants to move these and deals can be had by sticking to your guns on what you are willing to pay. Keep in mind that you can tag a better price by using the dealer and VW for financing as the dealer has more upfront cash available to them this way.
Also, realize that the higher end CCs are pushing into Audi territory, and you can get a nice A4 for about the same money as a mid-range CC. Add to this the fact that Audi is bringing the A5 4 door, essentially a high-end CC competitor from the same parent company, and you can build yourself a pretty nice deal.

Also, the CC is already limited in its 5th seat, which is a big issue for me! I understand the concept, but limits its buyers. I totally think it could still get by with a 5th seat! It is noted that the regular passat is very much overpriced now! When its becoming more old in concept. If they had redone the interior a little bit better on the regular passat, that would have been the car for me. But too many harsh looking materials and weird looking seats. The CC is just a very classy looking car when compared to the interior of the regular passat! Also, you cannot open the sunroof on the CC.....that is a big issue!!
I am not sure why they are holding the prices up so high on the regular passat. Seems to me you can get a CC for cheaper!
