This is my second CC, first was a '12 2.0T DSG. This VR6 with AWD is a little faster than the 2.0T, but not by much. The AWD eliminates the wheel-spin problem that my 2.0 had. I do miss the 'turbo rush' a little, but the VR6 does propel you nicely. I would add that the fit and finish on this 2013 seems much better than my '12 model did. The overall CC styling is an attention-getter--get a lot of comments about the car. My buddies with BMW's never get comments; I mean, heck, about everyone has a BMW--but you do not see too many CC's to begin with, and the VR6 Exec is rather rare--only like about 1 in 30 CCs from what my dealer told me anyway. Now, part of that is the price. These things sticker for like $41k; I looked at BMW 3-series and Audi's with similar or LOWER sticker prices (and yes, some higher). I went with the VW Exec cause my first 2 VW's had been wonderful, and I wanted something a little different. Also, the BMW just seemed small inside compared to the CC. I'm immature at 50 y/o, and enjoy a good stoplight race now and then, and I eat BMW 3-series for lunch--course I did with the 2.0T also (note, 335i not included; I pick my battles!) So, a lot of people see that sticker price and think "for that I can have a BMW or Audi." And I don't blame them...I had to do a lot of pondering myself. But I am very happy with the car. Very comfortable on long drives. It is a little rough on gas mileage, especially if you have a heavy foot. I frequently cruise the freeway at 85-90, and average about 22 mpg. My 2.0T would give me around 26 mpg at similar speeds. I'm undecided about reliability. Haven't had a breakdown in my 3 months of ownership, but did have an issue with the gas tank fuel gauge sending unit resulting in a whole new gas tank being installed! Also, a few strange glitches with the Dynaudio radio system freezing up.
