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 23 2010 CC TRANS PROBLEM !!
Feb 14, 2012 (8:55 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 23 Re: VW 2010 CC Sport Battery [arx9968]
Mar 27, 2012 (5:26 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 23 Air cleaner maintenance on CC Sport...
May 16, 2012 (12:53 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 23 Mileage interval for brake service...
May 17, 2012 (7:14 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.

I have only 22.5K on my VW CC 2010, it has been 2.5 since I got my car, and now I have to replace the battery, since the warranty on the battery covers only up to 2 years or 24K, when everything else in the car is under warranty for 3 years or 36K, I wonder why that is? Is the battery is not suppose to last longer than the warranty coverage?

I have come close to death 3 times now because of the lag.

Could you please tell me where the air filter is located at on the 2012 CC? I have a terrible odor coming out of the air conditioner when its first turned on. it smells so bad that I have to roll down the windows for at least a minute until its gone. I'm thinking the filter might need to be changed.
