VW Passat a lemon?
It's impossible to say whether or not you have bought a lemon, but I would strongly urge you not to sell it, that would be the wrong thing to do at this stage. If you look on the positive side, VW has repaired the failures that have occurred, so they have backed the vehicle. The downside is that you would not expect a new car to have issues of the sort yours has had, and that's both disappointing and frustrating. But having bought the car, it's best to stick with it.
VW Passat engine
Don't listen to "European car motor mechanics" for starters. I reckon if you checked in his back yard you'd find it full of Passat engines he would like to sell you. It's not a good idea to only do very short runs where the engine, gearbox and differential don't get a chance to warm-up, but runs of 10 to 50 km are fine.
