Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2012 Volkswagen CC Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 37,200 miles


Dead battery at 37,200. Had car towed to local service shop and battery replaced. Drove home fine and next morning commuting to work, car started shaking and bucking violently. Check engine and epc light came on. Was able to drive very slowly at very high RPM (on interstate and then side roads) to get back to auto shop that replaced battery. They found ignition coils shut down and mis-firing. Transferred car to VW motor hunt valley to see if covered under power train warranty. One coil found dead, other 3 recommended for replacement. Not covered under powertrain warranty. Thanks for your help.

Since I first purchased my VW Cc 2012, I have noticed when coming to a complete stop, the car still moves foward alittle bit. Also upon making a 3 point turn around upon putting the shaft in reverse the car still moves forward. The other complaint is upon going through a fast food drive thru, and setting the autohold the cars engine made a loud rev (revolution) noise. I actually thought my car would smash into the car in front of me. I took my car in today for the 10,000 mile free maintenance, they checked out my concerns and sadly said there was nothing wrong with the car.
