2003 Volkswagen Polo Highline 1.4 16v 74kW
Too poor built, too expensive little sports-car
When I just got the car I noticed a stain on the side of the passengers' chair.
The motor of the rear window washer broke down. The fluids didn't make it to the window, they sprayed onto the wiper.
There must be an awful lot of torsion in the car, because it makes terrible noise when driving over a bump. The doors squeak etc.
Within 18.000 kilometers some 2 liters of oil had to be refilled.
It's a fast car (100 hp) and it looks great (purple with 15" alloy 'Melbourne' rims). The car has never let be down (yet). The materials on the inside of the car feel great and look great. The sound-system (8 loudspeakers) is also a plus. Too bad that the front seats cannot be placed far enough away from the pedals.
Dependent of what the dealer can solve to my problems I think I will not automatically choose another Volkswagen again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
