Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (94-00)

Value

4 out of 5

Offers excellent value for money due to low depreciation and image.

Costs

4 out of 5

VW servicing is usually a little more expensive than for other brands, it can be best to find a quality independent VW Specialist or a reliable local car workshop.

Driving

4 out of 5

Handles better than other cars of same specification/year.

Performance

3 out of 5

You would not buy one if wanted to race but its nippy than it looks and provides good savings dur to low fuel consumptions.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Very reliable motoring, but a great deal depends on the owner.

Image

4 out of 5

Slightly up market/quality image when compared to its counterparts - seen as being popular but not common.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Very comfortable, specially considering that this model has no extras and is the "bog standard" version of the Polo.

Security

3 out of 5

Lacks in security, hence the need to install your own security devices. Alarm/steering lock.

Service

3 out of 5

I have not had any contact with the manufacturer as yet, I tend to use VW independent dealers - I feel the VW authorised dealers are rather expensive, specially for accessories.

Problems

Bodywork
The red paint was a little faded, hence it needs to be polished/waxed more my wife's previous car.

Engine

Gearbox

Other
The clutch rattles when driving on gravel/bump surfaces.
