Unreliable

Owned the car 6 months and the car has already had almost £5000 spent on it.

1: Defective Steering column + Comfort control
2: DSG control unit
3: Fuel injector failure

Each time it is taken to the garage i find out that they are all very common problems.
This is my first VW and it will definitely be my last, far too many issues from what i had always thought to be a reliable, premium German brand.
