Too many trips to the dealership

2005 Volkswagen GTI 1.8T 2dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Review
I have taken this car to the dealership more times in 9 months than my toyota has been in 8 years. I think right now there is water leaking on the passanger side floor, and also the trunk. I have had the trunk lock fixed twice, rear washer, drivers door lock, window fell inside door, had to be towed becuase it would not start, car alarm was going off every night at 3am. Had to leave battery disconnected everytime I got out of the car or the alarm would go off. Driver's seat stuck in place. I used to be a VW mechanic years ago, and this will be the LAST VW that I ever buy.
Favorite Features
Fun to drive, and in this area it's a rare car and gets lots of looks. The heated seats are GREAT in the winter, and sometimes in the summer when my back is sore (would be great if you could switch the heat to only the back). Free road-side assistance, without it I would just torch the car.
Suggested Improvements
Quality.
