1988 FSO Polonez Hatchback 1.5 petrol


Extremely cheap, zero technology


Problems with oil leaking, engine very thirsty and noisy.

General Comments:

Interior made of very cheap materials. Well equipped the year we acquired it. The car has hard suspension but rolls a lot in the curves. Our car was very reliable (maybe we have good luck).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

There is no way 20 people can fit in that car. it's a regular passenger car so most cars fit about 5 people

The Polonez is a piece of junk. Why anyone would buy this car is beyond me. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

O.K. we hear your sweeping generalisation..."piece of junk', but why don`t you give us some factual evidence to back up your claim? Or are you just another one of those boring and tiresome critics, with very little else to do, than to rubbish cars just for the sake of rubbishing them? Let`s hear something constructive for a change- otherwise your "contribution" is meaningless.
