Still at the dealer - airbag warning light stayed on... Faulty unit. Took 4 weeks to get it fixed.
Then a (self inflicted) cracked oil pan. My fault, but took over a week to fix it.
Then some spots started to show up on the hood. I was told that I must have parked under a tree somewhere and that it is my fault. They car is always garage parked. And then it would be all over the car and not just the hood. They tried to polish it out... no luck there. I they told me to come back the following week and an expert would stop by and take a look at it. I showed up the following week (by this time the spots had spread over the car). Upon my arrival, there was no expert and they just said that they would respray my whole car!!! It was 12 months old. Basically the importer knew about the problem and just blew it off. To cut it short, my car now has 3 new layers of paint. I have the Tropic Orange Pearl Coat.
Then the car got a little slow, no power in high RPMs. It was the air sensor in the intake. They changed that (a very costly port too). By the way, I am about to have a 3rd one replaces - all out of warranty. Notice that all VW dealers stock lots of these parts... A very common problem.
Then the brake lights kept staying on which is not big of a deal, but the main problem is that it jerks the car on every start from 1st gear. A safety precaution I guess.
Sunroof often does what it wants... Turn the button to the close position (from being wide open) and it does nothing. You have to choose a postion near it and then move to close. Then at time when you flip it up and go to close it, it closes and instantly opens again... So you spend about 10min trying over and over again until it stays closed.
As I read in another review, power lock - not only are they really noisy, but unreliable too. I'm a precautious person and I lock my doors when I get in - car jacking is a scary thing. So I close it from the inside and 99.9% of the time the left rear door unlocks by itself. So I have to reach back and lock in manually.
Then a while back, I had to have the whole driver seat replaced - The side and lumbar supports just fell apart and wires poked through the fabric. Just a mess and I am not a fat and heavy person.
My most recent problem is poor starting when warm. Can't really tell you what it is. Neither can any of the 5 VW dealers that I've taken it to. Mind you I had every known part under the hood changed, but still not it.
