I Don't Trust My Volkswagen Dealer. What do I do?

Hi John,

I have a 2009 golf TSI petrol - about 84,000km on the clock. So far under warranty they have replaced the motor, valves, both clutches & transmission. As I don't trust the dealer my question is I was thinking about giving the car to my daughter But a don't want to give her a car with continuing problems

Its going okay at the moment.

Thanks for your help.
