Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Polo hatchback?

Provided the car has been serviced on time and to VW's standards, there should be little to worry about. The Polo is well screwed together and its mechanicals are pretty robust.

In fact, many reckon this Polo model is more dependable than the one that succeeded it. Even so, the smart money goes on cars that have a complete service history. They'll also be easier to resell later.
