    Thread: 2015 cc?

    1. 01-02-2013 11:25 AM #1
      Hi, I have been hearing that the CC will be all new for the 2015 model year.

      What I am wondering is: are they going to make the sunroof sliding? i mean, even scion figured out how to make it slide on the outside.

      I will be in the market for a car by 2014 and will be interested in the CC. I looked at it this time around, but the lack of sliding sunroof and wobbly center consul made it lose out to a mercedez c class.

      anyone have any ANY news on this?

      My console is solid also. I have been a member of this forum for a few years and have never heard of a "Wobbly Console" before. Makes me LOL.

      While mine is not "wobbly" i does move slightly and make a slight squeaky/cracky (plastic rubbing against plastic) sound. It is kind of anoying. It typically happens when making a turn my right leg pressess against the center console and it moves (just a hair or two but enough to make it make noise). It also happens on a slightly bumpy road and sometimes upon "takeoff". by take off i mean when going from a stand still and accelerarting to whatever road speed and not like a bat out of hell although certainly when doing that as well!

      it seems to be multifactoral. 1st, the plasic is quite thin making it move more easily (think warping acting, not a shearing action).

      2nd there arent any buffers or seals between multiple pieces of plastic that are screwed together and while i dont know of any car that does do that, i can imagine that doing so (with a rubber washer for example) might allow for a tighter fit without the rubbing or shearing action associated with two materials moving disharmoniously (different directions or different rates at the same direction)

      It is not so much an issue that it happens every day or at every instance. some times it happens and other times (in seemingly the same conditions) it does not happen!

      all i know is my Toyota Camry Solara DID NOT DO THIS! but this is hardly enough to warrant not trading it in for the CC. It is still a far superior vehicle with just a few "why the hell did they do that?" things i will just have to get used to!

      That along with the armrest drives me nuts!!!

      I do however love the big moonroof and would rather have it instead of a sunroof that slides open.

      Do not get the C class over the CC. In my opinion, I think the CC has a lot more features for far less money. I went through this decision before purchasing my CC. The executive CC is has many luxurious features and looks more sporty and unique compared to the C class. You will just end up paying thousands more just for the Mercedes logo and added on is the reliability issues and high maintenance costs. Please don't consider the C class over the CC just because of a sunroof. But again that's just my opinion.

      Back to OP: 2015 should be a new refreshed or a complete redesign. By then the new Phaeton should be arriving in the US so I think the CC should have more of the features that are present in the European model. This should make the CC fit perfectly between the Passat and the new flagship Phaeton. Concerning the sunroof, I think the new CC should come with a sliding sunroof. Look at the Mercedes-Benz CLS class, it has a more sloped roof line and it still has the regular sliding sunroof. Maybe if the panoramic roof is switched for a normal sized one it could be possible?

      I'll chime in too. I'm ditching VW for a Mercedes x 2. Both my wife and I have had the worst luck with our '10 Tig and '11 VR6 CC. I'm actually being let out of my '11 CC due to my lemon law proceedings. I've owned 4 VWs and the first two were great. The second two have seen the owner experience cheapened and dealership quality made a laughing matter. I can't take my car in without it being damaged each and every time.

      I can believe he bought a C class over a CC. The benz has more luxury, better economy, and reliability IMHO.

      But this is also being posted in a VW forum, so of course you guys are going to be biased. Happy trails VW.

      Based on the changes made in the 2013 refresh I don't have much hope for what the next redesign brings, but who knows... maybe they'll surprise me.

      Well the new Golf looks pretty good if you ask me. And if thats any indication, the next CC should be breathtaking. Realistically, they tried to restyle the CC from a swoopy curvaceous car to a modern box. Well they just mixed the two to create an "ok" look. I have faith the next redesign will be great.

      Don't know man, German cars are very much alike -- they're complex and love their maintenance, sometimes to death. If I went through what you did -- and I seem to remember something quirky about the CC gas gauge; totally not atypical of German cars -- I'd go for Lexus or some other Asian brand.

      It's a matter of opinion and experiences vary, of course, but generally Mercedes hasn't been synonymous with reliability at any point in recent history. All European cars are maintenance intensive. You could make an argument that a Lexus or Infiniti or other Japanese car is more reliable, but I'm not really seeing how Mercedes fits.

      And for the same money as a decently equipped C-class, the CC offers more luxury features. A base C250 costs over $36,000, and once you check the boxes for things like navigation and the "Premium" package which includes things like heated power seats (standard on a CC), you're well over $40K. At which point you could get a CC 4Motion with a much more powerful engine, all-wheel drive, and features that the C-class doesn't even offer such as front ventilated seats. So if you can live without the three-pointed star on the nose of your vehicle, I see no reason to buy the Mercedes.

      You can say you drive a Mercedes...

      I do, however, agree with your assessment. CC > C-Class, in my opinion.

      I used to appreciate VW as I've been a long time customer of over 8 years. That being said, just because the VW has features, doesn't mean it's better.

      Take this analogy for instance. You go buy a Windows phone and I own a iPhone or an Android. Sure, they both are phones and do music and apps. But, VW is the Windows phone equivalent. They are trying to be what the big two are and it shows where they can't measure up.

      So, I would take the Benz over VW/Audi given what I've experienced. This includes the good times that made me buy VW again and the bad times over the last 3 years that have made me decide to leave the brand. For those on a smaller budget, VW is a good choice. I have simply moved on in my life to wanting more from a brand, features in the service side that VW used to offer and have since eliminated in the effort to streamline their operating model.

      It's a business decision and one that may work well for them. But I became accustomed to a certain level of quality from VW and the bar has been lowered. Loaner cars are sparse, warranties have been shortened by a year, and my dealers in my area have a certain propensity for always scratching the car when it is with them. I simply would like my property taken care of.

      But to each their own. I've found another German brand that I believe will better suit me as my time with this one has drawn to a close.

      Never said you couldn't say you drive a Mercedes. I'm not saying it's wrong to have a preference for a C-class over a CC...just pointing out that reliability and features are not necessarily advantages of the Mercedes.

      I think it comes down to which brand or more specifically which car on the market fits your needs best.
      It is true that a CC is great value for the money but it is also true that a Mercedes feels higher quality (at least C class and above). I never owned a Mercedes but I have a friend who owns a 2005 C class with leather interior and although externally looks old I have to say that I love the luxurios interior more than that of the CC.
      That being said, I also hate how often the center console of my CC squeaks and rattles
      I hope to fix the problem by adding some rubber here and there, but I definitely think that in the future I will buy the 2015 or 2017 model.
      It fits my needs perfectly, it's relatively luxurious without costing too much (cause I can't afford expensive cars) and at the same time a cool and rare (in my country) car!

      @OP: I don't have any info on the sunroof, is it really a deal breaker for you?

      I was bound and determined before I bought my CC to get a 2012 Mercedes GLK350. LOVED the styling, the features, everything. And it works as a Colorado vehicle. However, I when I test drove it, I hated the fact that I was constantly setting the cruise control (the stalk is where the turn signal should be...).
      The climate control knobs felt chincy and made very much out of badly fitting plastic. And while the IP was well laid out, it was just so boring. Nothing in that car made me say wow.

      Weirdly though, nothing about the CC made me say wow. I test drove it, felt like it was a decent car. I walked around it a good 65 times while the salesman was spouting off information. I thought, "this is a bit curvaceous for my tastes...but I think I could do this."

      15 mins later, I was signing the approved paperwork. My car is growing on me. I love it more every single day.

      To me you can look at the CC from two ways:

      If you think you're buying a luxury sedan it seems inexpensive.
      If you think you're buying s standard midsize sedan it seems overpriced.

      What's the right way to look at it? I don't know. I think the CC is better designed and higher quality than your average sedan, however not to the level of the luxury brands.

      The CC especially (and VW in general) have always seems to straddle the gap between everyday and luxury, at least to me anyway.

      Now with the introduction of more models specially design for the North American market with an emphasis at pushing down prices, VW feels more and more everyday.

      It's much funnier telling someone you have a CC. They will be thinking of what a CC is.

      Yes. I say "I drive a VW CC". They say..."oh, I've never heard of that"
      Then I say, "It's basically a Passat with a different body with some nicer features"
      Then they say, "Oh."

      And you can tell they really don't know what a Passat is either.

      Since I live about 40 miles north of the Mexican border, when I tell people I drive a CC, they think, Oh, you drive a yes yes vehicle?

      I say, "But of course". Now the confusion on their part really begins.
