1997 Volkswagen Polo 1,7 SDI 1.7 diesel


Nice little car


82000 km: Engine was turning off. One electronic module needed to be replaced. I paid about. 80 PLN ($25)

97000 km: Car made a strange noise. Exhaust system needed to be repaired

110000 km: One part in one rear break (drum breaks) needed to be replaced because break fluid was flowing out. It cost about 50 PLN ($15)

116000 km: Windscreen Wipers was turning on without any reason. The switch (or something like that) needed to be replaced/repaired (My brother did it so I don't know exactly :) )

General Comments:

This is nice car, fun and quite cheap to drive.

Fuel consumption is about 6 l/100km (39 mpg) in the city and 4.5 - 5 l/100km (47 - 52 mpg) on highway (Diesel Fuel)

This car has 60 HP. It is enough in the city, but on the highway I would like to have more power

Although this car isn't big it is comfortable and roomy inside. I am 186 cm (6'1") and it is OK for me

One little thing I don't like in this car, is the lack of Cup holders.

I think that this car is better than most of its competitors.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Very excellent car


Nothing much wrong has happened with the car while I've had I still it!!!.

Except for the usual the a new battery and light globes.

General Comments:

IT is a dynamic car and very comfortable and it won't break in the near future. Volkswagen is a very good car becouse its German not French citroen breaks very easily and has expensive parts, but Volkswagen doesn't have very expensive parts and it doesn't break as easily as a French car and is a very cheap car to run.

Actually, new(ish) Citroen's often have a better build quality than VW's. Parts are also cheaper for Citroen's.
