Northstar VW Brisbane : New 2012 Volkswagen CC: review
Commentary by Bob Aldons - Northstar Volkswagen
My first car when taking on the Volkswagen franchise nearly 3 years ago was a CC - a 4Motion (all wheel drive) and I fell in love with the brand there and then. VW CC as did the Passat CC exuded class in a vehicle that looks twice the price.
Apart from badge snobbery, CC matches it with all the other luxury car entrants save for one thing - the price. So if you can avoid HAVING to park a Mercedes, BMW, Audi or Lexus in your driveway, you owe it to your wallet or bank manger to test drive Volkswagen CC.
If you want to experience VW in the flesh, call into Northstar Volkswagen at 322 Anzac Avenue Kippa-Ring on the Redcliffe Peninsula. We're only 15 minutes or so from Brisbane Airport and a leisurely drive down the highway from Noosa, Bundaberg, Maryborough, and a short trip from Nambour, Caloundra, Mooloolaba and Bribie Island. We also get a lot of our customers as FIDO - that's not a dog by the way, that's fly in drive out. With cheap airfares, our customers come in from Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Mt Isa and even Sydney, Melbourne and as far away as Perth.
We'll happily arrange a drive home registration and you know the best thing about this? The drive home gives you just the best running in you'll ever get. New engines love a long drive to bed everything in and you'll get the best economy you've ever experienced. Alternatively if you're time or distance poor, check us out online at www.northstarvw.com.au or read more reviews at www.mycarreview.com.au . Finally, if you can't come to us, we'll come to your home, workplace or worksite - call Northstar on 1300 894 655
