The VW CC is the only good looking Volkswagon.

It's also the only VW that doesn't look like a 'bitch' car...

VW = Effeminate (except for the CC)

I did a lease on a car when I was 16....it was a 2001 explorer sport. I would definately not recommend a lease because you really are just throwing your money away unless you buy at the end of the lease. I spent roughly $12,000 over 2 years on the lease and after that you have nothing. I have been there and done that....I am not telling you what car to get.....just rethink the lease part buddy

Sorry to hear about your VWs. Mine has been bullet proof for 236,650 miles. I drive it like a race car. THe only thing I have had issue with are the lights. They seem to go out quite often.

Don't apologize for getting the CC...that thing is B E A U T I F U L! You will love the car. I have to warn you though, you just raised the bar for the next car you own. I have a Passat. I love it. I want a camaro so bad I can taste it, I really miss the V8 of the 99 Z28. I am having trouble justifying giving up the quality of the VW. I will, but I am having trouble. Every other car you see now will have to live up to the fit and finish of the VW.

I have leased my last 7 vehicles and it was the BEST possible way to drive those cars. to everyone saying buy a beater etc or dont lease they are misinformed or parhaps they put THEMSELVES in a poor lease Im not sure.

"I did a lease on a car when I was 16....it was a 2001 explorer sport. I would definately not recommend a lease because you really are just throwing your money away unless you buy at the end of the lease. I spent roughly $12,000 over 2 years on the lease and after that you have nothing. I have been there and done that....I am not telling you what car to get.....just rethink the lease part buddy "

To this person I would ask on a 60 or 72 month contract whay do you have at the end of 2 years? An OBLIGATION to pay off the car is ALL you have you dont own the car the bank still does. On a 2 or 3 year lease you have OPTIONS you can sell the car, trade it in or heaven forbid you hated it give it back having only been obligated to a short term.

Automobiles all deperciate the only way to win is to spend as little of your money to drive them while this is taking place which points towards leasing. the only scenario where leasing doesnt make sense is if a driver puts 25000 miles or more per year on there vehicles then it just doesnt pencil out.

The ONLY way I would drive a VW is under a short term lease, have you ever had a car or truck you just hated after 1 year or 2 again if you are on a long term contract you have an OBLIGATION to pay it off but if you leased it you have a shorter obligation until you can switch into something you like better!

Im sure many of you have horror stories about friends or neighbors leasing nightmares but I am 7 for 7 with ZERO headaches, in fact when my 2007 tahoe lease comes up in July I am giving it backbecause the residual is higher than current market value, had I been in a long term loan I would be buried and NOT be able to get out of it! Leasing a NEW car is the only way to fly in my book!

I don't see the problem in leasing if you want a different car every couple years and always want to have a payment. I'm buying mine cause I want it to be the first car I actually keep long enough to own, lol.

that car is nice... my moms probably getting one next year

and why does everyone say leasing is so bad? My family gets new cars every couple of years, so if you like to have a new car, leasing is the best way to go

If I didnt want a camaro, or a big truck/suv, I would get a VW. My dad has an 89 jetta desiel with 250,000 miles, only minor problems, and my mom has an 04 passat tdi, and the only thing gone bad in that is one of the glow plugs. VW's are rock solid for engine's. Their electronics used to be iffy, but they have overcome this problem, the cc is a nice car, and it sounds like you got a pretty good deal. Congrats.

Good lord if you think what I said was ridicule you have some seriously paper thin skin. Happy had nothing to do with the logic I was conveying. You can be happy with a car and still be miserable with form of payment.



Your folks are footing the bill, that means all you can do is do what you asked. There are many reason people lease one of which is that it is a tax write off. I am not a fan of lease vehicles because of various reasons that I won't go into but that is mute in this regard.

Rob when you start having to take on payments for anything I would seriously think long and hard, personally speaking here, before getting into a lease. Also if at any time your father wants you to take on the payment in it's entirety I would implore him to let you purchase a cheap car so that you can live payment free while in college. I just got out of all this bro, I wouldn't steer ya wrong.

At any rate let us know how that CC is, I expect a full write up with pictures.

The CC is a beautiful car. The member that chimed in hre do have some valid points. I remember when I was 17 it didn't long for my new car to get dents and dings.

Nice looking car, but not at all what I'd picture a 17yr old driving. Hell I'm 30 and I think that car looks too "old" for me. Plus I don't think leasing a vehicle is a good idea. Good luck though and I hope you like it.
