Smooth ride, but a little low for drivers 6ft+. Engine is noisy for a 1.4 vw engine. Brakes are very dull as well.

Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

4 out of 5

The SE comes with good spec.

Costs

2 out of 5

Service is expensive, and struggle to get 34mpg

Driving

3 out of 5

Smooth ride, but a little low for drivers 6ft+. Engine is noisy for a 1.4 vw engine. Brakes are very dull as well.

Performance

1 out of 5

60bhp in a heavy car is not a good combination. 0-60 in 13sec+ and power cuts out at 70mph

Reliability

1 out of 5

Clutch, pedalbox + loads of engine faults. Was not expecting this from a VW. The moment something is fixed something else goes wrong. Go for a honda or toyota.

Bit of a girly car but fairly prestigeous compared to the other cars in its class.

Comfort

2 out of 5

driving position is akward. Heater controls cause you to stretch quite far.

No problems as of yet.

Service

All they care about is money. Guildford VW is flashy and shiny, but everything is double the price and twice the work.
