VW Polo 1.3 GT 1983: Pocket Porsche I bought this little silver-metal toy very cheap in 2007 with only 65k on the clock. A recent import from Germany, it had evidently been extremely well looked after by a loving owner through most of its life, and just as obviously spent the last couple of years...

“A classic student car.”

published 11/04/2001

Cheap(ish), reliable, a classic shape

None

I have a 1987 VW Polo CL (think it's a mark 2) and have owned it for five years now. In that time I have covered 25,000 miles and have had no major problems at all. The body is starting to look a bit tired (it's kept on the driveway in all weathers) but the engine just seems to get better as it...

Shoddy build quality, not as reliable as VW should...

I bought a Polo GT 1.3 coupe a year or so ago as I'd wanted one for a while and at the time I'd just earned my second years no claims discount so insurance became affordable. I do like my VW's so I took my time to find the right car and I thought I did, I purchased a 1994 M reg GT that was one of...

“Great little car”

published 24/05/2003

small compact car with low fuelling costs

parts-especially tyres quite expensive

This was my first car, and still is. I used the car for learning to drive and felt safe and protected by the sturdy build of the car Although the car is small and compact, it gives a cosy feeling and is comfortable to drive. The interior is impressive and isn't the basic that you might expect...

“Resons to buy/not buy a polo”

published 28/10/2006

Cheap to run

Poor paint and expensive car insurance

I bought my Polo to originally learn in back in April. It was okay to start off with, but then I didn't drive it for a while. When left to stand Polo's like mine (1995) fade, rust and the battery goes flat. Although my car is 11 years old, its a fantastic runner and since I passed my test I've...
