I wish that I had done more investigating when buying my car. I bought my car with less that 5k miles on it, and in the 4 years I've owned it, I have had the same problems as everyone else. I had to replace the Mass Air Flow sensor; the sensor in my driver side door failed, causing the car to always think it was open; the glove box drawer is broken; and now the driver and passenger power windows are dying. It took $1000 to figure out the MAF sensor, and I became a regular at the car shop. VW has yet to acknowledge any of these issues. I hope to sell it (be rid of it) before anything else dies. This is just a poor quality car.
The dash board, but everyone likes that. It does have nice pick-up when going up hill. The seat warmers are a definite plus. None of this makes up for all the issues though. Also, I get 28 mpg highway, which is nice.
