May 2009 1000    
1000 0 Steering Rack Sensor which affected my steering was taken in twice (for 9 days total) including the day after the original repair.  Also found was a coolant leak which was repaired. Returned for the same problem as Trip one. It was repaired after 2 days in the shop (11 days total between both repairs). Light has gone on twice since June (as of today, 7/15/09) and I may need to return and review my states Lemon Laws. 
2000 0 Returned to the dealer for steering light (lost the car another 2 days). 
3000 0 The car was returned for a third time for the same issue - steering rack (light goes on). The dealer has been awful throughout this ordeal. In addition to the steering rack problem (times 3) I now have a major leak on the passenger floorboard when it rains heavy. I will let you know if they fix it - the car is once again in the dealer shop for another week. 
7000 0 I continued to have issues with the steering column light. Since this was the 4th time in for the same issue, VW gave me a 2010 VW CC. Also continued to have extensive water coming in the back floorboard.
