A perfectly healthy car will never need to be seen by a VW tech. It's like an ER surgeon saying that the entire human race is sick or dying because that's all he sees when he goes to work.
I had a GTI and my father still has his 2009 GTI with about 60k on the clock. He's had one issue in that time. My 135i was in the shop every 6 months and left me completely stranded at only 6k and had to have carbon cleaned at 18k. You live in a glass house.
