Yeh, forums seem to attract cars with issues, had mine since September, and done 8,000miles, car behaved pretty well until I got it back after someone crashed into it, since then (1,000miles) (and now at 50k):
Very slow coolant leak (related to repair), MAF died, suffered low down power loss (hopefully sorted after EGR clean), wiper linkage broke.
I should mention the Lexus they gave me when the 159 was being repaired broke down within two weeks (DPF blocked), my A3 had a turbo oil leak (meaning the engine ran away!) and master clutch cylinder failed. I do 20k+ a year, so they suffer.
