“Polo, The car with no holes”

published 04/09/2001

Performance, Fuel Economy, Specification

None that I can see so far.

Straight off, I should tell you I got a bargain. The car everyone dreams about, one lady owner.... no actually it was my dad's car. He'd had it from new, bought from the local dealers in Cardiff in October 1997, a nice shiny blue R plater. He's just bought a new car, so the polo was destined for...

“Great car, worth it... just”

published 17/10/2002

Excellent quality, lovely looking car

Expensive

I hired a VW Polo at work about 18 months ago. Took it home, and my wife loved it. Then about 6 months later, as our old car was collapsing, we stopped off at the VW dealer showroom, and looked at some cars. We started off in the second hand lot, and loved the Golf, but when we went into the...

Very good quality

Costly

Before I start my opinion on the Volkswagen Polo, I would like just to let you know that I don’t actually own this car, but am very near to purchasing one. I have trawled through internet sites, opinions, magazines and company reps to gain the knowledge that I have; I hope it helps anyone...

A Hidden Character

Hidden Costs

Firstly i do own a polo (1.4cl), as does my sister (1.0cl), we previously owned a golf (1.6cl). Clearly this may indicate a possible subjectivity to my views. However i will concede this car is not perfect in any right. We have had the cars for a few years now so we have a pretty good idea about...

“Fun and funky Polo 1.4”

published 23/12/2003

Great fun to drive, nippy and reliable

Strange pedals!

The Polo 1.4 was the first car that I ever bought myself so will always be quite special in a weird kind of way! I traded in my old battered Fiesta that my mum and dad had bought me and purchased a VW 1.4 Polo Match special edition for around £10000. The car came with quite a few extras for the...

Very Reliable, Cheap to run. Great looking car.

Handling, and does lack some character and fun

I have recently bought a 1999 T-Reg model for £1990 with just 49,500 miles on the clock. Which was an absolute bargain considering the vehicles reputation for reliability and also the fact that it is hard to get one with such a low mileage for its age. Since I have had it I have had no serious...

“I like polo's and tic tacs”

published 16/04/2004

Just brillant

quite expensive to insure if your a young driver

I recently acquired this car and I am going to tell all ciao members about it and how I think that this car rocks! And before you think that I have nicked it when I said "acquired" I actually mean that I swoped cars with my mum. So now she has got my fiat and I have her lovely polo!!!! Well the...

“Classy”

published 26/07/2000

classy appeal, interior quality

bit pricey

The facelifted Polo went on sale in January and, along with the adoption of more modern VW-type styling, more than three-quarters of the components are new. I opted for the 1.4 SE and am not disappointed. Inside, modern materials and distinctive design give the new Polo a fresh but sturdy...

“Polo FSI Sport”

published 04/05/2005

Solid, Nippy, Reliable, nice to drive

Couple of problems

We've owned a Polo 1.4i FSI Sport 16v in black for 18 months now. In that time we have cover 20,000 miles. This car has been built very well and feels very safe to drive. Compared to other cars on the supermini market, this feels very solid and is very reliable. My fiancee is very happy with the...

Not for me

Looks good and quality feel

Questionable Reliability

I have been the unfortunate owner of a VW Polo 1.4 Sport since last September and feel the car buying public should be aware of the catalogue of disasters I have experienced over the last 11 months. One month in and the engine management warning light appears and disappears frequently. Dealer...

“Missing Items. UPDATE”

published 28/11/2004

Drives beautifully. Handles well. UPDATE

Not Complete. Some basics missing. UPDATE

UPDATE. 08/04/07 I've now had the VW Polo for 29 months and I can't wait to get rid of it. The wiper blades have been changed 5 times, the engine management system light comes on very frequently (VW have no idea as to why), the brakes need to be de-glazed every month or so to reduce the constant...

“An excellent buy - Polo 1.4”

published 29/06/2006

Great 1st car!!! Cheap to run, low maintenance

not so good at holding road

I bought this car 2 years ago on a 98 (s) plate with approx 55000 miles on the clock for £2950 which is a very good price granted but make sure you shop around, there's cheap deals all over the place. ADVANTAGES - This really is a great first car to buy... i bought the 5 door hatchback model...

Reliable, Cheap to run, High Build Quality.

Nothing I can think of!

A few people have reported problems with their VW Polo, but I have had nothing but satisfaction from mine. I bought a second hand (1998 model) 1.4 CL about 12 months ago, and it has so far been everything you could ask of a small car in it's price range. The body work was, and still is in great...
