“Ideal first car”

published 29/08/2000

Economy, safety

None

Any parent looking for little Sarah or Jason's first car should give a basic 1.0 Polo serious consideration. They are not the cheapest used cars to buy, but should give a long life; even a 10 year old polo, if well looked after, can be an excellent buy. they are cheap to run (my ten year old...

---The Car--- I purchased my P reg Polo (1996) just over 12 months ago and can say that she has grown on me. I should also mention that this is my first real car. I did have a M reg Peugeot 106 (an absolute shed I might mention) which I managed to crash within 4 days of passing my test. Oops...

Strong, Sturdy Car & Little Big Car Feel

None as Yet

No power steering on this particular model.

So here it is, I passed my driving test about three years ago and growing up in a town where cruising was the real thing to do, I needed to get something that could stand up to all the Corsa's and 106's that seemed to plague me anytime I left the house. But as it goes, my entire family are VW...

When I heard that an old school friend was selling his 1999 T-reg VW Polo for £500, I thought that it was something I should invest in. At the time I was driving a 1993 Nissan Micra - which resembled a tin can - so the time had come to buy a replacement. I bought the car with 10 months MOT and...

Easy to park

window shades low

I have just bought a 1998 Polo and I just love it. Its a beautiful dark blue with grey interior. I know that colour should not be the most important thing in a car but it is - and when combined with everything else my new Polo is just perfect. I must say I was a bit uncertain at first as I...

Before I begin this review I would first like to say that I am no expert in cars, I have driven a few but I am not going to go into anything too technical in this review and this review will be based on that perspective. A LITTLE BACKGROUND I received my red VW Polo (Nicky) from my parents for an...

“My Polo has many holes....”

now let me think.....

how long have you got?

As you may know from my previous ops, I like to cover a variety of topics. What ever I write about has to have made some sort of impact on me to inspire my writing, but usually I prefer to take a positive note, generally writing about the things I enjoy or make me happy. However the little car I...

The VW Polo now comes in new model classifications and they are: · E, S, SE, Colour Concept, 16V and the GTI Since the opinion is about the entry model the E, I will stick to that model. The entry model comes with the following engines sizes and 3 or 5-door hatchback: · 1.0 litre 50 bhp, 1.4...

“The Car Without a Hole”

published 19/01/2005

Reliable, Good 1st Car

Some winter problems, price

This is what my first car is. I've owned it since Nov '03. Mine is a 1.0L T Reg in white. Now this is the cheapest, most basic model there is. So Im going to keep that in mind in this review. Also remember this is my first car so I dont have any other cars to compare it to really. Anyway on with...

Lack of features

I’ve had my VW Polo (nicknamed the minty wagon, polo being a mint…..as if I need to explain, you’re all intelligent people!) for just over 18 months now. Okay, so I don’t have the newest version of this little car, it’s an F reg in the good old bread van shape, but...

Reliability, Looks, low depriciation, space,

Not very efficiant (mpg wise)

There seem to be so many confusing reports about this car. From what I have seen so far this place seems to be about regurgitating manufacturers specs instead of actual user reports so that is what I intend to do. I purchased my Polo in august last year for £5100. A sign of VW's wonderful...

I wrote a review about this vehicle on this very website in 2004. Now I'm a bit older with a fair bit more vehicle experience I thought I would re write the article. As with any VW you pretty much know what you're going to get. They are solid, reliable, well built, comfortable and generally...

Engine noisy when driven hard

I don't own a Volkswagen Polo but I did rent one for two weeks to drive around Ireland & clocked up 1400 miles. As an ex-mechanic that short time is long enough for me to assess this little car. Should I be looking for a small car I would have probably short listed the Toyota Yaris, Nissan Micra...

“Not just a pretty face”

published 17/11/2000

Cheap to run, will hold it's value well

No power steering or ABS

We've had one of these little fellas on the drive for almost a month now. And yes, I'm pleasantly surprised. Having had Volkswagens before I had no hesitation in test driving the Polo 1.0L when I had the opportunity of a relatively cheap one. I'm used to driving more powerful cars, but foud the...
