2011 Volkswagen CC Consumer Review – The DSG transmission does this car a complete injustice. There is a significant hesitation from a stop, and the shifts are jerky and unpleasant. VW couples this half-engineered transmission with an engine that has significant turbo lag – turning every city trip into a manic journey along the torque curve.
Everything settles down once you get the car up to speed, making the CC an enjoyable highway car. The exterior and interior styling is fantastic, but the transmission will be a disappointment to anyone who has ever driven a well built, thoughtfully engineered car or truck from a reputable manufacturer.
Exterior styling. Bluetooth connectivity.
Scrap the DSG transmission. Build some low-end torque into the 2.0T engine.
