      '10 CC 2.0T 6Spd, '07 Volvo XC90 3.2, '00 B5 1.8T 5 spd (ret.), '99 B5 1.8T 5 spd wagon (ret.)

      2010 2.0T with 6spd manual with about 43K on the clock. Purchased brand new.

      I guess as much as I like my CC, I feel like kicking myself from time to time for selling my 2000 1.8T 5spd Passat. That ATW motor was bulletproof, and when I sold the Passat it only had about 110K. If I'd have kept it, it would only have around 146K or so now.

      So this is what the CC has required so far...

      • TWO intake manifolds (replaced under warranty)
      • Coil pack replaced (Covered under warranty, but had to fight for it)
      • Carbon Cleaning (Eventually covered under warranty, but had to fight for it as this is not covered. Also got a courtesy Passat to drive)
      • Replaced oil pan (either the dealer or quickie lube place stripped threads on plug and pan was dripping all over driveway)
      • Cracked black plastic piece on hood (covered under warranty)
      • Squeaky parcel shelf when new (noise went away by itself, so I didn't have to get that crazy welding done)
      • Battery replaced
      • Clutch is starting to have the dreaded cold-weather squeal (out of warranty so TSB wont help me)
      • Rear windows have always groaned weirdly when going up or down, since new. (We don't use them much for that reason.)
      • A/C stinks (like a dead bird my co-worker said recently) even though both the dealer and me have replaced the charcoal filter at proper intervals
      • OEM rear tires are bald on the inside edge even though rotated at proper intervals (but apparently 43K on these tires is outstanding)
      • Radio update per TSB I read about on Vortex (covered under warranty)



      This seems like a long list, and it is, but out of pocket expenses have actually been minimal, since most of this was covered under 3Y/36K bumper to bumper warranty. Also, in 2010 VW gave 3 Yr free maintenance. Now that that is over, I go to my trusted independent VW mechanic and use my VAG-COM if anything comes up. Also, I need to remind myself that the Passat had it's share of warranty related fixes early on that seemed to sort everything out, and that over the course of 10 years of ownership, I put a good deal of work into the Passat to keep it in great shape. So, in that way, the CC has not been significantly worse so far. And we do intend to keep it for many more years if possible, so that should mean something I guess.

      Once I got that trim piece near the trunk lid replaced under warranty and 3 rear light bulbs (not under warranty!!!) replaced, no major problems.

      The dealer got rid of some of the creaks in the back and the battery had to be replaced after only 2 3/4 years (no more German batteries for me), but I am still very pleased with my 6spd CC.

      Overall, the car is as tight as when new, but not as tight as the '03 Accord I traded in.

      I have an 09 CC Luxury with 208k. I bought it with 135k from a single owner. The first owner put all highway miles on it since they put those 135k on in only about 3 years.

      I’ve put very little into it since I’ve owned it considering it’s mileage.
      Coolant temp sensor
      Couple sets of tires (they cup bad on CC’s... I could use another set)
      Spark plugs and coils at 170k
      ECU for parking sensors (did it myself)
      ECU for something else that was affecting the lights

      Right now the thermostat is stuck open I think because the car runs cool. I don’t get much heat in the winter.

      At least one of my fuel injectors is going out too. Once in a while I get a mean feeling EPC light and need to key cycle and it goes away.

      Lots of rust... 2009’s had an issue I think. It lived in the Midwest for its whole life.

      I enjoyed it but I think I’m replacing it soon.

      I am assuming this is 2.0T engine?

      I'm not sure if you got a notice or know about it, but there's a class action suit going on for that
      (I received 2 of them, since I had two CC's before)

      Avoid any VW/Audi with a 2.0TSI (or TFSI) whos engine was built before 2013. The engine build date is printed on the white decal, near the oil dipstick. The date is in the upper right corner, in euro format DD:MM:YY

      Why exactly? Obviously mine with 206k is still going pretty strong. I’ve been real happy with it.

      I think he meant 2013 cars with engines built Before April 2012 thats when they used new timing chain and pulley and new intake runner flaps to stop it from grenading.

      No, I mean that you want a 2.0TSI (or TFSI) engine built after Jan 2013. The model year doesn't matter, only the engine build date, found on the decal on the engine.

      The later production of the 2.0T has many improvements (tensioner, chain, PCV, injectors, HPFP, balance shaft bearings, Cam-bridge oil screens, waterpump, turbocharger, intake manifold, rear crankshaft seal, front timing cover and seal....)

      2012 CC R-Line. Just flipped 100,000 miles this week. I've gotten the intake manifold, HPFP and water pump replaced under warranty. Had a transmission mount break this year. I'm stage 2, manual trans with a Clutchmaster FX350 clutch so maybe that had something to do with it. Also had my exterior door handle break, but otherwise it's been fairly issue free.
