The rule of thumb used to be that brandnew cars are as likely to fail as worn things. i.e. defects will appear quickly, and once addressed, should then be reliable until they fail due to wear and tear. ..of course, having said that, the coilpack and high pressure fuelpump/injector issue seems to occur at any stage! From what I've read, it seems that the permanent (or most reliable fix) for the coilpack issue is to replace all + perform software update at the same time. Just hypothesising, but maybe the failing/out of spec coilpacks could be causing the fuelpump failure and vis-versa?
