I've had several Volvos before buying this used CC, which also has a European feel. The new Buick Regal was the runner up, but the interior felt like I was driving a big plastic toy. The Volkswagen interior feels more luxurious and well made. Mostly I wanted a grown-up interior in my car and this CC has it with sleek leatherette seats and good finishes. The stereo speakers are only OK, however.
The CC will not be confused with a sports car but it handles fine in curves and has a surprising amount of torque. The brakes are somewhat mushy. However, overall the car feels nimble and safe. The headlights that "look around" the corner are a great safety feature.
Sporty, fun, classic!
2012 Volkswagen BeetleAn Ceitean - Colorado Springs, CO11/30/2016
Plenty of room in the cargo area. Lots of legroom for the 6ft and above club (just don't expect four of us to fit all at once!) Power! I have the manual transmission, shifting from 2nd to 3rd is not fluid until you get used to the rpm transfer. Great gas mileage, drives like a dream overall. I've had plenty of vehicles and this tops my list of sedan/ hatchbacks!
Great car but...
2011 Volkswagen JettaMarc Held - Westminster, MD01/13/2016
I learned part of the exhaust system has a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that is very expensive to replace. Many are go approximately 120,000 miles. I estimate Ill have another 30,000 miles before mine needs replacing. Hoping that with the imminent emissions recalls, it will get handled by VW.
Do not buy a diesel if you only do short trips. You will kill the DPF fast.
