Dealer called back today. "Please, just $400 or $500 and we are there."

Unfortunately, I've been doing too much research the last 48 hrs.

HPFP issues
Oil leaks
Timing chain guide issues
Turbo issues

Are these things really that unreliable even on the 2nd generation? My mom has one that has been flawless, however it is 3 years old with 10k miles on it and never goes on the highway.
