Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (94-00)

Value

4 out of 5

Seems solidly built, so worth paying that little bit extra for.

Costs

4 out of 5

I've had the car for 11 months now and all that's needed doing is the rear wheel bearings tightening.

Driving

Can feel skippy at high speed. Handles well around town.

Performance

3 out of 5

The old 1.3 engine is punchy when you travel solo. Travel with 5 in the car and it's about as exciting as watching paint dry.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Starts with no problems.

Image

4 out of 5

It's a good looking supermini and it hasn't really dated. The body coloured bumpers as standard really help the looks of the car.

Comfort

3 out of 5

The seats are firm and cause back ache on long journeys. If you are a tall driver, legroom for the passengers in the rear is almost non-existent.

Security

3 out of 5

It's got an immobiliser, but the door locks are poor. I have considered fitting an alarm.

Service

3 out of 5

They seem helpful, but dealership labour is expensive.
