Not sure if it's any worse than any other make/model to be honest. As an example, both VAG cars I've owned (one VW and a Seat) had a list of problems as long as your arm. The Seat (bought new) required a replacement engine after only 6 weeks (cam belt went and trashed the engine pulling onto the M74) and the suspension re-built under warranty. Pretty dramatic issues those !!! So need perspective I suppose. Got to laugh if your a car owner, that's what I always say.
