Ive had my polo 2002 plate just under 2 years now, and im not very happy with it at all.Ive had countless engine faults in relation to the engine coils which cost me £30 a time to fix.the fuel cap decided to lock itself in the middle of the welsh countryside with only a few miles left in the tank, home being just over 150miles away.then last week my window mechanism broke, so i couldnt do my window up.. took it to the garage, cost me £200 to fix.I thought i was buying a reliable car but it seems i was very very wrong indeed
I have just purchased a 1.9 TDI Polo Sport (03-plate). I had to sell my beloved 1.8T Golf due to rising petrol costs and a longer commute to work.
What a great little car - it's very nippy, economical and clings to the road like glue!
I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to reduce their fuel bills but still drive something with a bit of speed.
The best bit is it looks very pedestrian, but I can happily burn people away at the lights!
I love it!
I bought the car new in October 2004 and it has been totally reliable for the 39000 miles I have now completed. Variable service intervals, 1st service indicated at 28000 miles, cost £304 (including brake fluid change). Punchy performance (especially when turbo kicks in @ 2000+ revs). Only snags are it is a bit noisy (more insulation required to shut out road noise) and dash is a bit drab. Otherwise, a great little car (so far).
Elecrtics are too complicated for it's own good. Dipped headlamp bulb location failed after 2 years. Apparantly a common fault. Necessitates replacement of the whole unit. uses tyres quickly. Engine comes on cam at 2250 and goes very well.
