Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

3 out of 5

You get what you pay for, but not built to the (high) standard of larger V.W.s

Costs

3 out of 5

Abysmal fuel economy aside, generally very cheap to run - just regular service costs.

Driving

4 out of 5

Almost fun!

Performance

4 out of 5

Quick engine - good grip and steering - slightly wayward handling on B-roads.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Can't fault it.

Image

3 out of 5

Inoffensive, inconspicuous, indistinct etc.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Improved immensely by careful "tyre choice." Excellent town car especially with auto box.

Security

3 out of 5

No alarm, but not the sort of car anyone would steal surely?

Service

2 out of 5

Unhelpful and over-priced.

Problems

Bodywork
Dreadful water-based paint (non-metallic) damages very easily. Whole car looks like a "miniature ice-skating rink" on close examination.
