Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Volkswagen Up hatchback?
Being a small car, the Volkswagen Up will most likely have been used in city stop-start traffic for most of its life, so you should check that the clutch is easy to operate and there isn’t any slip, otherwise you might need to replace it.
Check for bumps and scrapes to the bumpers and bodywork, because this will all cost money to put right. Also, the Up provides its infotainment system through an app on your smartphone, which is held in a cradle on top of the dashboard. Because this is removable, check that the previous owner has left it in the car.
