Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

2 out of 5

Unjustifiably expensive.

Costs

3 out of 5

Standard running costs are cheap but fault repairs make car below average in this department.

Driving

3 out of 5

Boring and predictable.

Performance

3 out of 5

Average for a 1.4 8v as car is rather heavy.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Very disappointing as I have owned two FIATs before, both of which were older, cheaper to run and more reliable.

I'm 21 and the car feels a bit too stade for me but the interior is trendy.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Seats are supportive but doors are cumbersome and like closing as you try to get out the car.

Security

3 out of 5

No alarm or central locking, just basic immobiliser but it's too boring to be stolen anyway.

Service

2 out of 5

VW dealership is very clean and well maintained, just a pity they don't keep my car that way.

Problems

Bodywork
Lower door corners suffer excessive stone chipping and paint seems a bit thin.

Engine
EPC and oil warning light come on all the time and the rear brake lights have just stopped working.

Gearbox
No feel and sometimes pops out of gear.

Other
I really wish I had not bought this car but it was a good deal at £4000 for a 2000/X with 30k miles from a dealer.
