Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.0 L 5d (1996/P) - Owner Review

Comfortable and quiet. Would have been nice if the seats held you in place a little better. Don't make the mistake I made and buy one without power steering!

Performance

3 out of 5

1.0 engine a bit gutless on motorways, particularly when overtaking. Excellent about town though. Easy to drive.

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems whatsoever.

I think it's a nice looking car. They do sit quite high, though.

Comfort

4 out of 5

No real complaints. Would be nice if the front seats were a bit tighter.

Never had any trouble. A 1.0-litre's not really going to appeal to many joyriders.

Have it serviced privately.
