Pocket Porsche

AdvantagesGreat fun, cheap to run, reliable

DisadvantagesSomewhat bumpy ride, finding the right spares can take time

"==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 as a cheap, minimal maintanance daily transport. I have owned quite a few mkII Polos before this, and for some reason the very early models - 82-84 ..." Read review

Polo 1.3 GT, not so good

AdvantagesQuick, cheap to buy and insure, fun to drive on the right road

DisadvantagesShoddy build quality, not as reliable as VW should be

"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 the last that VW, or rather SEAT made, the problem is the mk3 polo (1991-1994) was made in the SEAT factory in Spain and in all honesty it showed. Unlike ..." Read review

car for all weather

Advantagescheap

Disadvantagesnone i can see (i do were glasses though)

"I've had my little polo for nearly two years now and find it great fun to drive in any weather. When its cold and there's ice on the road the car seems find the bit of road where there is more grip werid i know but true.

A classic student car.

AdvantagesCheap(ish), reliable, a classic shape

DisadvantagesNone

"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 gets older. It is reasonably cheap to run, reliable, always starts first time in the morning and it is quite fun to drive. The engine is willing and lusty ..." Read review

Great little car

Advantagessmall compact car with low fuelling costs

Disadvantagesparts-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 from a small car. Boot space is good and the rear seating is ideal for small children. Gives good pulling power for a small engine and is economical in the ..." Read review

Resons to buy/not buy a polo

AdvantagesCheap to run

DisadvantagesPoor 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 done nearly 5000 miles in it. It starts first time every time, and warms up quickly. It's easy to drive, and a very enjoyable ride. It's comfy, and easily ..." Read review
