#5 of 20 02 passat issues
Oct 21, 2011 (12:29 pm)
i just got a 02 passat 4 motion a couple days ago and ive noticed some things with the car....
1. the heat doesnt work---all the fixings for the heat to work is running fine but there is just not hot air coming out the fans blow hard and everything but no heat...the heated seats work perfectly but no hot air im seeing that it could be a couple things like a clogged hose or faulty heater core but im not sure because everything else works fine...
2. the radio goes out as volume goes up----ive noticed that on certain volume levels the volume on the monsoon radio would cause it to go out, now the radio would still be lit up but id have to turn it off then back then turn the volume down for it to work now if i didnt turn the volume down wit would play for a couple seconds then cut off again like it was blowing a fuse or something or busting the sound decible level causing it to go into some type of fail safe or something....
3.none of the streering wheel functions work nor does the horn----now i dont typically use the horn so i didnt notice it at first but i was excited that i had steering whell functions and i noticed those off the bat the cruise control light comes on but doesnt set nor will the volume change if you select a different one one the wheel...now they all light up when you turn on the headlights at not but still dont function...also turning the wheel does nothing as well, now with the horn i press it to no result but when i lock the door with my actual key you can hear a little horn toot which confuses me why the horn wont work
now with all this being said everything else work completely fine...everything lights up no fuses are blown windows work sunroof all the locks everything else electrical works fine to my knowledge so any help in how to fix them would be greatly appreciated.....
#6 of 20 2012 VW CC

VW CC: I cannot believe that Edmunds didn't comment on the throttle lag with this car. The acceleration is so bad that it is unpredictable and unsafe. I even read about a woman who almost got in an accident with it because the car wouldn't accelerate fast enough, so she almost got hit while turning. If it was not for the unseamless turbo, I would have leased this car. While driving up a highway ramp during my test drive, I had the pedal to the floor and nothing was happening. Then whoosh! I'm sure it's not a factor in a manual, but they need to improve the lag.

My CC has a LAG in acceleration from the start too. Makes you wonder what's ups with Audi/VW when they designed this engine.

I'm very surprised. In the past, Audi/VW has always had the tightest (in a good way) suspension, quick acceleration and a nice drive. I don't know why they would mess with something that isn't broken. I've had a '98 A4 that I loved! It was the most perfect car with the least amount of problems I have owned to this day (wish I bought out that lease!). My '05 Saab 9-3 had turbo and it was a lot more seamless then the VW CC. The 9-3 had turbo lag when you went to brake. This is a problem with acceleration. Someone mentioned it is a problem with the auto transmission upshifting too soon and the ECU. The car is opening the exhaust for too long before acceleration kicks in. VW seriously needs to recall and time it better and also reset the ECU.
I wish there was way we could get this to the Edmunds.com editors. They should really include that in their review and they haven't, can't believe it as it was an issue in the 2 CC's I test drove.

I am looking at a 2009 that was returned for water in the doors. I know this has been a problem in the past. I really like the car and the new owner said VW put new seals in the windows, undercoated the doors and added 12 months to the warranty. I wondered if anyone else had this done and if it has solved the problem. Worried about the water in the door short term but if water is in the car and long term problems with electronics in the door.
#10 of 20 2010 CC TRANS PROBLEM !!
Feb 14, 2012 (9:55 am)
the CC was the car of my dreams after a big effort and thousands of dollars I was able to get mine, it was just like a dream came true it was perfect until two years after and with only 21,300 miles TRANSMISSION fail ......
just out the blue car will not go in reverse or forward I freak out because I was in the middle of the street with traffic coming towards me I shifted back to drive and reverse several times with no results until I came out of the car and pushed off to the side ..... besides the shame of push my brand new car it was very scary being in the middle of a busy street with no transmission. After I turn off engine and wait a few minutes I started car and surprisingly car responded normal.
I took car back to dealer and they said it was something call the MECH TRONIC SENSOR who knows what that thing is but anyway they told me they will replaced at no cost and they make arrangements to get me in a enterprise rental unit,
I was told that it will be ready in about a week, well long history short it took 4 weeks for the part to arrive plus an extra week for labor....
finally I get the car back just for one more week after seven days SAME thing happen again this time in a expressway called roadside assistance they towed car back to dealer they had it for 3 more weeks I got the car back on January 19th with brand spanking NEW TRANS I was told they replace the whole trans with a new one........
car was in perfect condition until last Sunday Feb 11 that it happen again ... I turn it off start it again and car is working now apparently normal......... if that happen again I'm going with the lemon law does anybody has any advise or had the same problem ??
#11 of 20 Re: VW 2010 CC Sport Battery [arx9968]
Mar 27, 2012 (6:26 am)
I am having the same issues with my car. I took my car into the dealer for the recall repair and a week later my battery died. At the time, I had about 36K miles and the dealership said I need a new battery. After they charged me over $170 for the new battery and installation, I am having the same trouble less than 3 months with the new battery. This is my first VW and I think it will be the last. Not happy with the service and battery issues. I have had 4 Nissans over the past 15 yrs and I have never ever had issues with a battery. Back to Nissans I guess.
#12 of 20 Air cleaner maintenance on CC Sport...
May 16, 2012 (1:53 pm)
Is the air cleaner a reusable-type that can be washed out, as one person told me, or is it a replaceable-type? My CC Sport has 34K on it and I have not had the air filter serviced, unless the dealer did it during a 10,000 mile service. My manual is in storage and not available for me to access for service info.

I opened up the air cleaner housing today and noticed that it is a standard replaceable paper element-type filter. It is not a reusable "washable" filter as an employee at an auto parts store thought it might be.
#14 of 20 Mileage interval for brake service...
May 17, 2012 (8:14 pm)
My 2010 CC Sport has 33000 miles on it. I do not drive cars aggressively, but was wondering what is average mileage before original brakes on a CC Sport will need to be serviced. I am not having any vibration from the rotors and or any squeaking noise from the brakes pads as of now.
