Why Not the 2013 Volkswagen CC?

Materials & workmanship

Very disappointed with the interior plastic componenents and trim. Squeaks like an old wooden ship over bumps, acclerating and braking. Sunroof needed to be replaced because of noise. The new one still squeaks. I've had to wedge felt and neoprene foam between gaps and joints to quiet the squeaks

Powertrain performance

Until the most recent ECU upgrade the transmission was balky around town. The upgrade is a welcome improvement

Ride smoothness

Overly stiff ride around town and bumpy roads

Driving position & visibility

I have the Lux and it needs a rear view camera for the price I paid and given the small rear window - poor visibility when backing up


I purchased the CC for the following reasons (which have not panned out the way i expected:rn1. German engineeried - expected a tight rattle free car - not even closern2. Performance - am now satisfied after the most recent ECU upgrade. Prior to that very disappointed with the transmission
