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!

I guess that's why there aren't that many CCs in my local dealers. I think one of them has 7 and that's the most from a single dealer. There is one in the parking lot where I work and it's just so beautiful in black.
By the way, a friend who recently purchased an A4 says you can add the Navigation system after you purchase the car but I thought that's a factory option not a dealer one.I am a bit concerned sine there aren't that many (if any at all) CC w/Nav in my area.

I can't speak for the A4, but I can address the CC (and any other VW). You can pull the radio you get and replace with a VW radio w/Nav. Not cheap, by any means. However, consider the fact that you can pop the original radio (2010 are all touch screens) and get a good buck for it, thereby reducing the costs. Also there's a VW lookalike radio w/Nav on ebay. Very inexpensive, but it's not the radio VW uses which was co-developed by them with Siemens.

We bought our 2009 VW CC VR6 at the end of the year and got 9K- 10K off the price because it had been on the lot for the year. The VR6s are pricey, so they don't move as well. We'd have never paid 39K for the car, but we paid 29K, which was a good deal. My wife really liked the VR6 more than the 4 cylinder turbo.
And so far, we're very happy with the car. No problems at all. I am just trying to keep the rugrats from dinging the doors (so far, we've been lucky on that count..rugrats must exit all vehicles OUTSIDE of the garage, and then mom and dad pull cars into the garage to avoid kids dinging one car or the other).

Thanks Bronson that's really encouraging for me! Can you tell me what month you made the purchase and what incentives were available? I'm under the impression that both the Lux and VR6 models are harder to move.

Hi Kaliforniak - sorry for the delayed response. We purchased our CC on December 12, 2009. It was advertised at 10K off of MSRP. It was the ONLY VR6 the dealer had on the lot, and it had been there all of 2009, and I know they wanted to move it quickly.
Fact is that the car retailed for almost 40K, and there's no way we would pay that for a VW just yet. But 29K was worth it for the car with all it came with. I looked at the dealer's Web site, and it looks like they only have 1 2010 VR6 on the lot and bunches of the 4 cylinders. Looks like December is a good time to get a VR6

Thank you Bronson! Don't worry about replying late, it's not like I want to buy one now. I think there are about 5-7 VR6s within 50 miles of me so I'll be keeping an close eye on them.
What kind of mileage are you getting on your VR6? I'm only getting 13-15 cities on my 2.3L Mazda 6 which is ridiculous. It might be the way I drive but that kind of mileage on a 4cyl is pretty bad regardless. I imagine you get something better with the VR6.

We're not doing too badly with the MPG on the VR6 CC. In the city, my wife is getting lower MPG, around 17 - 20 MPG. Our old Passat V6 would do a little better than that though. However, I took the CC on a two hour highway trip last Friday, and I got 27 MPG and above the entire trip. Never got it all the way to 28 MPG, but I got close.
Our V6 Passat would get 32 MPG on the highway easily, but I was happy with the VR6 MPG considering the power the engine has. It was quite nice passing slow pokes. And then every now and then some poser in a Honda Civic would come up behind me and ride my bumper, so I'd goose the engine and leave them in the dust...get 1/2 mile ahead, and drop back down to a little above the speed limit . Shame on me!

I just purchased a silver CC Sport R-line in California for $1,500 below invoice, 0 down and 0% for 60 months. Great deal!
