I'm happy for you that you've had a pleasurable ownership with your VW's, but just because you haven't experienced issues like the ones I've mentioned does not mean they haven't happened to other VW owners.
I dont doubt you at all. VW's dont exactly have the best reputation for reliability. However, I've had more significant problems with my BMW while owning it for 2 years than all the problems you remember seeing as a VW auto tech. I'm not saying BMW is worst than VW. I'm just saying my BMW was a POS!
