Not a bad car, I own a Green 5 door N reg 1.4 Polo. It's my first car and has convinced me that my next car will be a Polo but newer! It's cheap on insurance and petrol and seemingly very reliable I have only had a few things go wrong with it. The window reg broke, the central locking motor has broken, the wiper motor broke... so basically all the motors packed in. I also have to change the light bulbs in the back alot. They don't seem to last very long! We also had a problem with it a year ago whereby the heater or something was storing water which meant that the inside of the car would never demist properly but we replaced a part and its fine now. Apart from that its a Read the complete review

When I heard that an old school friend was selling his 1999 T-reg VW Polo for £500, I thought that it was something I should invest in. At the time I was driving a 1993 Nissan Micra - which resembled a tin can - so the time had come to buy a replacement. I bought the car with 10 months MOT and four months tax remaining - so it's fair to say that I snagged myself a bargain. That said, there was a pretty large dint in the driver's door, from an accident that he had six months previously. Lucky for me, my step-dad is a car enthusiast and offered to fix it for me. Other than that, the bodywork on the car was okay generally, however there were a few tiny rust ... Read the complete review

This was my first owned car and what a great choice it was! It is one of the cheapest cars on the market for its quality, and coupled with the small insurance policy as well as low fuel consumption, over the years, the car really does work out to be extremely cheap compared to so many of the other cars out there on the market. It's an attractive stylish vehicle and very well recognised in the UK as a reliable, common vehicle. The service charge is very small and something rarely goes very wrong with the vehicle without an influence from the driver, although the clutch has been known to break and has to be replaced, but remains fine after the replacement, ...

Although you see WAY too many of them around in my opinion, I love my little Polo. Having had 4 clapped out old bangers nicked in a rather short space of time, I decided early last year that it was time to invest in a decent motor. I was advised by those in the know that a Polo was a cool small car, big enough for me and my kids. NOT cheap though - but because I'm the kind of person that cannot be bothered to shop around, I wandered off to the nearest VW garage and bought a nice black one (what a typical woman!) at £8000.00. It's S reg 1.4CL, seriously low mileage and in mint condition with a factory fitted immobiliser and central locking. VW have been a ... Read the complete review
