Like David, I never wanted more power for the CC-but some tweaks to the suspension tuning might be in order. Despite being billed as a sporty alternative to the Passat, the CC feels rather soft and has numb, overboosted steering. The brake pedal isn't much better-the four-wheel-disc system has a fair amount of bite, but pedal feedback is fairly spongy.

It's a shame. With a stiffer suspension and a bit more driver feedback, I think the CC could be a sexy, sporty sedan that's as fun to drive as Subaru's Legacy 2.5GT.

I too experienced the "strange cabin noise/pressure changes" during a test drive. May be a deal breaker.
