Volkswagen Polo Hatchback 1.4 L 3d (1999/S) - Owner Review

Feels like a much bigger car, a pleasure to drive. Gear changes could do with being a bit smoother, reverse can sometimes be hit or miss!

Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (94-00)

Value

3 out of 5

Average build quality for a VW, but compared to others in its class, a solid reliable car.

Costs

4 out of 5

Not as expensive to run as I thought.

Performance

4 out of 5

Good on fuel. Keeps up on the motorway but remember it is only a 65 bhp engine so don't expect instant power when trying to overtake at 80 miles an hour (where law permits!).

Reliability

5 out of 5

Owned it three years no problems at all.

Long motorway journeys.

Not great, but if someone really wants to steal your car, they will no matter how much security you have.

Service

1 out of 5

Poor; (Windrush Maidenhead) would never by a VW from them again.
