#18 of 23 2011 VW CC Executive Gas Pedal FAILURE (not hesitation or false neutral)
Feb 23, 2013 (8:22 am)
Several times since purchasing the car last year I have experienced what I consider a significant issue with my CC V6 Executive. When pulling out from a hard stop into a traffic intersection or making a turn crossing traffic - push down the gas pedal and absolutely nothing happens. Can push pedal to the floor but with no response, no increase in RPM, no indication that pedal has been applied. I have read about false neutral and pedal hesitation problems, this is something different and could cause a traffic accident. On one occasion I rolled into the traffic lane with oncoming vehicles and barley crossed without incident after pressing the pedal down several times in a panic. I cannot say under what conditions hot, cold, long or short drive, hill or flat surface, or what operational pattern is prone to the failure- it just occurs maybe once a month under daily normal driving conditions.
I have taken to the dealer and reported the problem; after a day in the shop they say they "cannot duplicate problem" and no fault codes present. I understand intermittent problems are very difficult to diagnose and seek any similar experience or advice on how to facilitate dealer repairs.

I loved my new CC car however; Friday afternoon i was driving home i was driving in traffic then suddenly when i pressed the gas pedal no response. I pushed it several times and nothing happened i assumed it turned off however the radio was still on and the battery icon appeared. I put the car in Park then i restarted it. I took it to the dealership Saturday, morning and reported the issue.

This is still an issue in the 2013 CC !! I wish I had done more research before leasing the car... I would not have picked this car. As said in an earlier post the lag is unpredictable and very unsafe!! Can't wait until my lease is up... I will not be getting a VW!

Radio volume decrease then cuts off. Drive a while comes back on. At times cannot get radio icon to show on screen.

I am trying to decide which car I should buy and hope some one can provide some insight. My last two cars have both been a '98 Camry and '07 Camry. I will be putting 14K down.
2012 Toyota Camry SE 28K miles for $19,000 certified
2010 VW CC VR6 4Motion 21K miles for $23,000 certified
My main concerns with VW are powertrain issues, maintenance costs and depreciation. In addition, it's a 2010 and if my loan is 5 yrs it will be 8-9 yrs old when paid off.
What would you do and why?
Thank you for your help,

Truecar.com says you should be able to buy a brand new 2013 Camry SE for $21,507. Why are you even thinking about a used one? If you're going to finance for 5 years, the monthly payments are not going to change significantly.
