Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

3 out of 5

Hardly bargain basement price - especially considering car's performance over 18 months.

Driving

Suspension a bit wallowy.

Performance

3 out of 5

Reasonable for one litre, but needs to be revved hard.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Several niggling trim/build quality problems (brake pipes incorrectly fitted, rattling exhaust/dashboard/window). Not impressive!

Comfort

2 out of 5

Dashboard air vents are a triumph of styling over function. Seats can be too firm and lack support for long journeys.

Alarm would be nice

Service

1 out of 5

Difficulty getting warranty repairs done at a convenient time. Getting a courtesy car is like getting blood out of a stone! PDI did not seem to be done adequately.

Problems

Bodywork
Rattle from dash, under body (badly fitted brake pipes), driver's window.

Engine
Intemittent pinking, exhaust rattle, two cambelt tensioners.
