Maybe you haven't heard of the busted pistons and spun rings on the ST. I'd be VERY surprised if you've never seen a newer ford with bad paint. Or known someone who had to salvage their Ford due to frame rust. But hey, it's an American, so it's a great and reliable platform to start, right?
1 bad apple spoils the bunch...I've had zero issues with my mk6 at almost 20k no coil packs, no plugs, no water pump...nothing. People love bad news and ignorantly spewing rumors as soon as they hear something

From Truedelta:



Which makes me not want a Ford in general or a 2012 GTI. I own a 2012 and it's needed nothing in the past 80k miles aside from oil changes, oil filters, fuel filters, carbon cleaning, etc.
