Missing Items. UPDATE

AdvantagesDrives beautifully. Handles well. UPDATE

DisadvantagesNot Complete. Some basics missing. UPDATE

"...dummy. I asked the Volkswagen dealer as to why, and their reply was that, "Only higher spec vehicles have a light in the boot and the glove box, i.e, SE and above. As for the cigarette lighter, VW do not supply vehicles with them installed. Furious is an understatement. Every car I have driven, and/or test driven, have had even these basic essentials. But not in the Polo Twist. The car drives beautifully. Handles well in the wet, and is very comfortable ..." Read review

Fantastic Car

AdvantagesFast and safety car

DisadvantagesPrice and consume

"I both the new VW Polo the last February. This is really fantastic car, fast confortable and with more safety. Consume more fuel but only if you go so fast. You can drive quite and you can consume less fuel. Inside is fantastic, with two airbags, radio, the seats really confortable and with good air conditioning. The ABS are so strong and you can drive so fast because the ABS is fantastic. I can say only: buy this car because I love this car. I know ..." Read review

An excellent buy - Polo 1.4

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

Disadvantagesnot 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 which is great for getting your mates in instead of having to fiddle about with seats on the 3 door models.... Fuel consumption is pretty decent too ( i ..." Read review

Polo 1.4 CL. A second hand dream!

AdvantagesReliable, Cheap to run, High Build Quality.

DisadvantagesNothing 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 condition. The engine always starts first time, and is very economical. For a car it's age the interior has hardly worn and the overall build quality is ..." Read review

2006 VW POLO 1.4 Trendline with style packet

AdvantagesGood allrounder, good handling, well built

Disadvantageslack of equipment (unless paid for), low ground clearance

"We bougth the car from new in April 2006 and have been using it daily since. I do about 220kms(160 miles) per day and havent had any problems so far. I have small family, we are living in Turkey and we all love the car. On the downside, gauges on the dashboard are not clearly visible as top of the steering wheel hides the petrol and the temperature gauge from view. I should probably mention that I am in the region of 6'4'' tall. Head clearance ..." Read review

VW Polo (94-99) S-Reg by deaders

AdvantagesNippy, Cheap tax/insurance stylish cabin

DisadvantagesNo e/l, c/l or PAS (optional extras)

"There are many 'pro's' for having a second hand Polo. For starters the 1.4 engine, combined with the light chassis really does shift when you put your foot down. It handles the road really well. I would say that the interior is of a high standard and is well-built. Apart from being cheap to tax, it is in insurance group 5, namely ideal for a first car. The mpg is roughly 42.8 combined. I'm 6 ft 4 and theres plently of room for me in the front and ..." Read review

Quick review of Volkswagen Polo 1.4

"I had only just passed my driving test and was on the search for a car which was within my budget looks good and is economical. I looked no further when I got to a 1.4 Volkswagen Polo, It had everything that I needed. It's small, it looks great and it drives smoothly and i still had money left in my wallet. I would recomend this car to anyone.

VW Polo 2000, 1.4MPI, 8V Review with images

AdvantagesEconomical car, great for students, Low budget car

DisadvantagesCosts to repair

"Bought Volkswagen Polo this year at middle of June 2010. I was looking for a low budget car with manual gearbox and gasoline, so somehow my eyes caught up this VW Polo. I am very satisfied with this car since day of buying, it is comfortable even for 4 people in it. Yesterday we were 5 people in a car; I have to admit that on a backseat for 3 people it is a bit too small, if there was a longer distance, I should have made some short stops for my squeezed ..."

Economical Style

AdvantagesStylish, Economical, Solid

DisadvantagesTwo Doors

"Since our family got a lovely 'evergreen' Polo, I have been clearly shown that this kind of design quality, solidness and style can be combined with great economy. The fuel prices of late made us snap up this car, which now is in the lowest VED catagory. We have been extremely pleased: it is a solid ride with very nippy performance and quite a deep and spacious boot for a car of its size. The Volswagen dealers were lovely when we visited the showroom ..." Read review

VW's Rule

AdvantagesSolid yet nippy

DisadvantagesNone

"I bought my 'N' reg VW Polo over a year ago and I can honestly say that I have not been disappointed. It was a little smaller than my previous cars (a Vauxhall Cavalier and an Astra Belmont) but this has caused few problems, apart from when trying to fit 5 people, luggage and lots of booze for New Year's Eve in Cornwall!! However, I find that the car is very nippy and considering I travel at least 80 miles a day it is doing well. With it being a 1.4 ..." Read review

Po - lo maintenance

AdvantagesQuick, loads of headroom & legroom

DisadvantagesBack bumper often gets bumped

"Having had a P97 Polo Cl, 5 door, for 12 months, I can recommend this car to all 2nd hand car buyers. The ride is extremely smooth and there's tons of headroom, which is great for us tall bods! The fitted Sony radio is very good. The VW Polo is great for motorway driving, of which I do quite a bit and nippy in the lower gears for city driving. Another important point is that even with the recent plummet in 2nd hand car prices, the Polo price ..." Read review

This Car ROCKS

AdvantagesFast and cheap to run

DisadvantagesLight on the front, easy to spin off the lights.

"I love this Car.. I bought it second hand just recently. I fondly remember the feeling as I pulled away in the unresponsive first gear - only to hit 2nd gear and BOOM.. I was off, this car is very fast 2nd and 3rd gear. It really pushes you into the back of your seat. It drives and sounds like a 1.6, really enjoyable. The only bad thing I have to say about this car is that it is too easy to wheel spin being very light on the front. Other than that, ..." Read review

Polo 1.4 CL

AdvantagesOverall sleek design

DisadvantagesNothing specific

"The VW polo is a well balanced car, with good handling, plenty room for passengers and enough quirky design features to make it interesting. Although more expensive than its nearest rivals the Polo brings a touch of class to the compact car world. A redesigned dash with circular dials and a generally improved design. The car appears to have gone slightly away from the round styling of the previous models and towards the meaner looking Golf. The front ..." Read review
