Great design, suprisingly not as well made

ReviewI've had my 2013 GTI for nearly one year.
Love driving the car, performance, economy, styling, are all excellent.
My car went in for a 10K Service at the Dealership and came away with a clean bill of health.
Then 6 weeks later, the coolant light came on.
Dealership diagnosed as a fault with a new water pump part on 2013 models.
Significant work removing and reinstalling engine bay parts to repair.
While it was at dealership, they identified an additional fault - apparently through engine diagnostics - and it required a replacement intake manifold.
More engine bay parts removed and reinstalled.
I am now very concerned about the long-term reliability proposition for this vehicle.
Best FeaturesInterior design is excellent.
Worst FeaturesMake it German reliable. No excuses.
