Pros

Value Writeup

With great understated styling and upscale standard features such as heated front seats and rain-sensing windshield wipers even on the base Sport model, the latest sport sedan from Volkswagen is positioned to fight well-known European luxury brands like BMW's 3-Series.


Model Highlights

The CC has two available engines: a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder, available in the Sport, R-Line and Luxury models, makes 200 hp and has 207 lb-ft of torque. The 3.6L 6-cylinder available in the 4Motion ups that power output to 280 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. While all models come with a 6-speed automatic transmission with Tiptronic, only the Sport and R-Line can be had with a 6-speed manual transmission. The 4Motion with the V6 engine turns in the best 0-60 mph time, at 6.2 seconds.

All four models share anti-lock brakes with anti-slip regulation, power-assisted front vented disc brakes and fully independent sport suspension with MacPherson struts. Traction control, electronic stabilization, front and side curtain airbags and thorax air bags for the front seats are standard. Side thorax air bags for the rear passengers are optional.

The Sport may be the entry-level CC, but it still comes with air conditioning, Bluetooth, heated front seats, cruise control and a touch-screen radio with a 6-CD in-dash changer, eight speakers and MP3 capability. The Lux model adds power and heated mirrors, sunroof, dual-zone air conditioning, leather sport seats and the Parking Distance Control system as standard equipment. New for 2012 is the Lux Plus, offering all of the Lux features as well as interior ambient lighting, Homelink, power sunroof, wood interior trim and navigation. The Lux Limited, also new this year, takes the Lux Plus package and adds 18-inch wheels and Bi-Xenon HID headlamps.

The 4Motion is very similar to the Luxury model but for the more powerful engine and all-wheel drive. It features special 18-inch wheels, a multi-function steering wheel, a premium 10-speaker sound system and HID xenon headlamps.


Model News

For 2012, the CC gets several interior updates, as well as a few new trim levels. Joining Sport, R-Line, Executive and Lux are Lux Plus and Lux Limited, both of which offer slightly different feature configurations. In addition, several interior modifications have been made, including the addition of a small analog clock to the dash, revised wood trim and a standard electronic brake switch moved to the center console.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Golf and Jetta SportWagen, 2007-2010 Passat sedans and wagon, 2012-2014 Passat sedan and Eos, 2009-2014 CC, 2009-2012 Audi Q5, and 2010-2011 Audi A5 Cabriolet vehicles. Upon deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

Consequence
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflators, free of charge. Volkswagen issued an interim notification to owners on April 12, 2016. Volkswagen owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-893-5298. Audi owners may contact Audi customer service at 1-800-253-2834.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. (Volkswagen) is recalling certain model year 2010-2014 Volkswagen CC, Passat, and Tiguan, 2010-2013 Eos and Jetta, 2011-2014 Golf and GTI, and 2011-2013 Jetta Sportwagen vehicles. In the affected vehicles, debris may contaminate the air bag clock spring, a spiral wound, flat cable that keeps the air bag powered while the steering wheel is being turned. This contamination may tear the cable and result in a loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag.

Consequence
A loss of electrical connection to the driver's frontal air bag will prevent the air bag from deploying in the event of a vehicle crash, increasing the risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Volkswagen customer service at 1-800-822-8987.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Summary
VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2012, CC VEHICLES, FOR FAILING TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLES SAFETY STANDARD NO. 138, "TIRE PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM (TPMS)." THE FACTORY INSTALLED WHEELS AND TIRES WERE REPLACED AT THE PORT WITH ACCESSORY WHEELS AND TIRES THAT WERE NOT EQUIPPED WITH THE PROPER TPMS SENSORS.

Consequence
WITH THE INCORRECT TPMS SENSORS, DRIVERS WILL RECEIVE A CONSTANT WARNING FROM THE TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM. THE SYSTEM ALERTS THE DRIVER BUT, DUE TO INCORRECT TPMS SENSORS, THE SYSTEM CANNOT DETERMINE IF THE VEHICLE TIRES ARE PROPERLY INFLATED. THIS INCREASES THE RISK THAT THE VEHICLE WILL BE DRIVEN WITH ONE OR MORE UNDERINFLATED TIRES, INCREASING THE RISK OF A TIRE FAILURE THAT MAY LEAD TO A CRASH.

VOLKSWAGEN WILL REPLACE THE TPMS SENSORS WITH THE PROPER SENSORS TO MAKE THE TPMS SYSTEM OF THE VEHICLES COMPLIANT WITH FMVSS 138. AS OF JUNE 1, 2011, VOLKSWAGEN HAS CONTACTED ALL AFFECTED CUSTOMERS TO SCHEDULE THE REPAIRS FREE OF CHARGE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.

VOLKSWAGEN SAFETY RECALL NO. 44J4/XO. OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is.
