Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (94-00)

Value

4 out of 5

You always seem to pay more for the VW badge, it's worth it!

Costs

2 out of 5

Parts are very expensive, don't use cheap, aftermarket parts...it will come back to haunt you.

Performance

4 out of 5

You should see the look on some peoples faces when I leave them standing! Most can't believe it has 100BHP. More than a lot of 1.6's and 1.8's! Only the gear ratio lets it down on the motorway.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Starts every time, some bits are temperamental...like window motors!

Can be a hard ride. Have taken mine to Switzerland and back with three occupants, no grumbling!!
