38k miles does not lie

In 6 months I realized how poorly designed it is and you get real concerned about the long term reliability of this vehicle. When you get into the driver's seat, you will always have to dodge the side bolsters. The car's ventilation system makes clicking sounds and this is normal according to VW. My car since the purchase date sometimes refuses to turn over when started, nothing wrong that VW could find. Trunk release does not open in cold weather. If you want an oil change, either buy your own filters or go back to the dealer, nobody stocks them. Gas fuel door was replaced under warranty as well as rear fender clip that holds bumper in place.
Perfomance of the car. Good gas mileage but need premium gas.
Seats, noisy ventilation system with clicking noise, body integrity - parts do not fit together well, electrical problems, reliability and cost of ownership.
