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 :) )
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
