“i love our new polo tdi, has very easy handling,...”

Written on: 28/11/2010

i love our new polo tdi, has very easy handling, conservative design, comfortable seats, nice heavy doors and not costly on diesel. However, like any good diesel engine, it gets a bit noisy on low gear, road noise is also a bit high on the freeways, the side mirrors are a little bit too small and VW has the worst customer service i know.. that said though i would still recommend this car to anyone, it's a reliable little car… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/08/2010

Hi although I love our new car it has been back in to the garage three times with faults, and now a serious electronic one, their customer service is terrible and I really feel that they don't care wheather I am a happy customer or not, I don't know when I am getting the car back, as they don't call as according to them they are to busy. I really shouldn't have a new car that has been back to the garage this many times… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/07/2010 by John Quick (1 review written)

Report on a new V W Polo 1.4 Petrol - 59 reg. Metalic Black hatch very good from driving point of view. Very responsive steering & good brakes. Engine suffers on hills & you need to be back in 3rd gear or you loose speed. We are however having a problem with flaking paintwork around bonnet edge. This is on the drivers side at the windscreen end. There seems so be 3 different places where the bonnet paintwork edge has been "touched up" during factory final inspection. 2 areas are at the… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2010

VW Polo 1.4tdi Bluemotion 1. This car is really lovelly to drive and has taken us, regularly, up to North Scotland from West Devon 70mpg at 70mph ... amazing. We forked out the extra money to buy the most fuel efficient vw we could, however it the alloy wheels let grit through to the disc brakes and the drum brakes to (screws up functioning of the ABS). I got a three year servicing deal and discovered that only includes a visual check of brakes so I have had to go back five times and fight my… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/02/2010

Had the car two days when the fuel pump died the car had covered 26 miles, that said VW were extremely good, the car was back on the road the next day. Very spacious, well equipped and a real pleasure to drive. I am not interested in torque or speed if I was I woudl have bought something more punchy. It works fine for me… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/01/2010

I bought a 1.4TDI match a year ago and do motorway miles mostly. I suppose the one issue the cars have is the front of the dash where there airvents are to de-mist you windows do cause issues, in that when the sun shines off it there is a major glare on the windscreen which is dis-concerting and off-putting when you are tyring to concentrate hard on the road ahead and at the end of a 40 min drive you can be left with very tired eyes and a very sore head. Ive just had the tube to the rear… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/04/2009

Just part-exchanged my Peugeot 206 2003 1.4 for Volkswagen Polo 1.4TDI 55 reg and I am very pleased with fuel consumption & the turbo gives the car a real kick. Fun to drive & nice to handle. So far so good. Much stronger than the Peugeot which felt like a flimsy tin can! So safety wise, it's alot better.
I've yet to discover any problems with it… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2008 by emmahob (1 review written)

I'd advise anyone to try out the new polo match that I ' ve recently purchased. I got the 3dr VW Polo match hatchback 1.4 tdi diesels in metallic black on a 58 plate. It looks really good inside and out (even down to the blue dials and leather steering wheel and gear stick) it even has a little sport look too so my boyfriend loves it as well! The inside is very spacious and comfortable, (the feeling of space is similar to what you ' d feel in a bmw x5) with the best looking black and grey… Read Full Review

Not sure if £11,500 is worth spending on a polo, when the earlier model around 2001/2002 has the same engine, perks etc for less than half that £££. But each to their own. Vw's do give a nice solid feel compared to other cars, seem compared to the equivalent ford fiesta tdci that suffer huge probs with injector seals the vw is the best bet

Good little hatch! Better drive and ride than the fiesta but looks a little bit too cute, for my liking. Haven't had any faults as yet, but dreading the day because the VW dealerships are not pleasant people to deal with once you have bought the car from them… Read Full Review

great review, the bad points are ones that tend to get overlooked so thanks for noting them, and also the lack of torque at low revs could be an annoyance, tho the number of times this will affect me will be very minimal. But is another excellent point to note. Thanks

Mysterysong's Response to gak's Review

Written on: 26/11/2007

A word of warning - my Polo TDi was just over 3 years old when one day, I was going out, put the electric windows down only for them to stay down. The result was an emergency trip to my VW dealer (who I'd never used due to their prices and attitude) and to be lumped with a bill for nearly £500
<br/>
<br/>It needed a new window wiring loom - apparently, this is a known fault with VW's but they're just not interested. The part only cost £116, the rest was labor at over £100 an hour plus VAT - no wonder I've now switched to Toyota

“As fuel stops were so infrequent, you'll never earn...”

Written on: 10/11/2006 by Reviewer100 (25 reviews written)

As fuel stops were so infrequent, you'll never earn fuel points. The performance from such a little oil burner is excellent. The car is ideal for both long or short journeys, but I'd recommend it as being best suited for commuting, as the 3-cylinder engine is grindingly noisy and shaky for longer trips. Ideally, you want a 4-cylinder car if you can afford the little extra. The little Volkswagen Polo 1.4TDi is great in a straight line, but don't go round corners too fast as it will topple… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/10/2006 by Saeby (1 review written)

My Volkswagen Polo 1.4TDI is a very versatile and practical car and does as well as a lot of much larger and more expensive cars. It's a diesel, so a bit of a rumble at low speeds, but it's comfortable, nippy, can carry loads with the seats down, has excellent braking and safety features… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/01/2006 by bobgoz (1 review written)

I have had the Volkswagen Polo 1.4TDI four years and the only fault has been one stop lamp bulb blown. It drives very well indeed and goes as fast as I want to go with a good relativily quiet ride.
I am on the lookout to replace it with another in the near future… Read Full Review
