Why are so many people complaining?

2000 Volkswagen Jetta GLS 4dr Sedan
I currently have 165k on my Jetta GLS 2.0L. Besides some recall issues (window motor module, and a catalytic converter) the car's been fine. Sure, there are wearable items that go, and I recently did a suspension replacement (tie rods, ball joints, lower control arms, struts, and rear shocks) that cost about $600 for parts. Otherwise, it's a solid runner and is fun to drive. Would I but another? Sure. All cars eventually have most (if not all) of the issues that I've run into.
standard tranny, leather seating, heated seats, and cool dash color.
cup holder design stinks. Breaks easily, but you can find replacements online.
