      09 CC VR6 Sport - 13 Stage 3 Golf R - 86 Jetta Coupe - 86 Golf GL
      01-07-2014 04:19 PM #27
      I like the non sliding sunroof on my VR6 CC. if it slid it would make me feel like i'm driving a Kia Optima.. as cool as it is to have it open i just don't like the look of an open panoramic sunroof on cars... it's jut my opinion. If it was an SUV (Tiguan, or Touareg) i'd definitely want it. I just think that if you opened the panoramic in the CC it would take away from the lines.

      On a side note. I have a feeling that US may miss out on the next CC and get the Phaeton, or vice versa? Only time will tell.... if that's the case i'm holding on to my 09 VR6 forever as they may become rare like the Scirocco.

      That new CC looks sweet, and the Shooting break is SEX!

      I have had a sunroof in pretty much every car I've owned except the CC. I've never used it in any car I've owned. I actually didn't even noticed the CC didn't have one until after the test drive as I was walking around it.

      I have had Mercedes and Volkswagen. I can say the C-Class vs the CC is very comparable. Lower Priced C-Class do not have real leather interior. Merc, like VW utilize and leatherette material in their entry level cars. Merc calls it MBTech. I had it in my C-Class and have it in my CC and Jetta. When I got my CC I was amazed at the quality, the ride, how quiet the car is. The Benz had tones of road noise, my CC is almost silent. I am sorry to hear some people have problems with the VW's. But I am sure you have people with nightmares from Merc dealers and cars. I know a guy that has a S500. The dash crapped out on him, $5000 to fix. That should not happen in a 100k + car, but it did. But I think VW is a great car for the money and just as good as a Merc C-Class. The only thing I like better in the Merc than the CC is in the Merc, the A/C on a very hot day, (I live in FL) comes out cold immediately, and in the CC and my Jetta, it takes like 5 Mins to get as cool as I would like it. And the other thing I liked about the Merc is that it is RWD.

      SUnroof is not a big deal but it would be a bonus if it opened.

      I own a CC and my wife owns a 2012 C300 4matic.

      My opinion on these 2:
      CC gets better fuel economy
      Transmission is better in CC (regular auto in C300 kills the car)
      I like the electromechanical parking brake in CC better then the foot brake in the Benz.
      I also prefer the seats in my CC, looks and comfort I think.

      Those points aside everything is better in the Benz, feels so much more solid, no rattles and creaks.
      Engine note is awesome (granted its a V6), more fun to drive, love the steering wheel.

      However at this point if I did not mind auto transmission I would go for the CLA45 AMG. It's basically the same price we paid for the C300.

      This strategy actually works. I had an issue with some rubbing/rattling on the passenger side dash/footwell area. I took little pieces of black electrical tape and put them in the seams that I could see were rubbing. I tucked the tape in so it can not be seen. Now the only rattle I have is my sunglasses in the overhead holder.

      I had some noises in my dash and the dealer removed the complete dust and replaced it using felt tape and now there is not a sound. I was kind of worried that they might make it worse but top marks to them for the great job they did. It was Listers in Coventry by the way.

      The MQB TT? I think it's MK3 but I see what you mean since MKQ is used for Golf MK7 as well.

      I think it will come to US, the question will be what options they will offer and transmission choice.

      Back to the OP, my take on the c-class is this...it's for those who can't afford a real MB.

      I used to work at a BMW dealership. I can't tell you how many times a 3-series owner came in and their credit card was declined. Even further, they had an attitude like they were better than everyone. The 5 and 7 series owners were usually very friendly, and many of them had black amex's. Same goes for MB owners...when I worked at the local MB dealership.

      My take is, if you are buying a brands entry level car you need to analyze if you are living beyond your means. Maybe you are better suited with a more affordable brand where you can get more for your money.

      I apologize if I offended anyone. I live in an area where you are judged based on what you drive. I understand that in many parts of the country a c-class is a very nice car not seen very often.

      01-13-2014 09:22 AM #43
      Frankly, I would have to agree with the comment above. I have a 13 CC and i mean as cool as it is, there are many things i do not like about it that has me craving an A4/A5. I drive my cc on trips and idk about the rest of you but the Seats are not that comfortable I have a Sport ( maybe thats why ) I wanted the manual and you cant get that w/ the VR and i couldnt justify the extra money for the R Line when it wasnt awd and simply cosmetic changes. The sunroof thing does bother me and thats one reason i opted against it. I also cant backup worth a crap w/o that camera. the CC has a very limited field of view and blind spots. Othewise its a great car for the money but I can totally agree with the OP and the guy talking about the C class. Im sure if i spent the money on a R line or a Lux, my epxerience would have been better.

      Im shooting for an Audi next go around.

      I can't agree with this. The C-Class looks the best in my opinion (especially the facelift) and is most sporty (CLA was not around when I bought our C300).

      I find E-Class and above more of an older person car but does not always have to be the case.

      Also paying ~55k for a C-class in Canada is not exactly cheap.
      I don't really think the CC compares in this category unless you where going for a 3.6 4motion, but that's a whole different discussion.

      Depends on what trim level of C class. If you are referring to the base C class, absolutely. I considered one when i looked at the CC. The CC just looked and felt better and was about $6k cheaper with less miles just because it was not a MB. SO i decided to get a a well equipped CC vs. a "watered down" MB. I do agree with you though.. some people in these entry level luxury brand models think they are all high and mighty.

    21. 01-13-2014 11:03 PM #46
      I am not a MB expert by any means, but I did look into a C class at one point (probably like 3 years back). All the ones I saw had horribly cheap interiors. I means really bad. I would venture to say like entry level Dodge bad. Bad enough that I didn't even test drive one so it may drive amazing I don't know.

      As far as Audi, personally, unless I was going like A6 or higher or maybe an S5, I would just get a VW. I mean they practically put the same engine in every car up to the A5 and to me personally the interior fit and finish is not that far superior than the higher trim VWs to warrant such an increase in price.

      In regards to the comments about the entry level BMW owners I will have to agree to some extent. Although I don't know if it's just entry level or basically any 3 series. I have owned a couple BMWs and I will tell you 3 series owners are the worst. Mostly though I think it's because they are usually younger (honestly I found some of the same when I had my GTI. Again probably something to do with age). Personally I find that the "best" crowd is usually with the older BMWs (and older cars in general).

      MB has really improved their interior in teh C-Class as of 2012. That's the only reason I consider it.
      I think the A4 still has a better interior though and I find it superior to ours in the CC. It was very solid built although there are some cheap trim pieces in the lower end model.
      CC interior is getting on the dates side for sure. It is still using Passat B6 layout (since 2006).

      I read something about a 3.0 turbo replacing the 3.6 right now. That would have it compete with the performance of an s4 at about 10k less. Plus I like turbos better.

      I would be buying the CC if it had 4motion and a 3.0 turbo!

      I think i like the way the interior looks. I especially like it better than the new Passat interior. I dont mind old so long as it functions and keeps with the look and class of the car. I think VW would be hard pressed to find a better interior that is significantly different from what is in our CC's now.

      It's true that this interior template has been there for a while but nonetheless I like the minimalism of the current CC interiors.
