Volkswagen Polo Hatchback (00-02)

Value

4 out of 5

Premium price for a premium brand.

Costs

3 out of 5

Servicing reasonable, but terrible problems trying to sell after 2.5 years. No luck selling privately (even at rock bottom price), so had to take the hit and trade in against the Mini. 50%+ depreciation.

2.5 years without any problems.

Always looked good, but being black it always looked dirty!

Comfort

3 out of 5

Driver's seat could have done with a bit more side support.
