Good car, but gear is a risk
Serious gear trouble with loud rattling noise in gear 1 to 4. This is a weakness of the VW-Polo gearbox according to the experts. Often the crown wheel riveting fails. Costly overhaul of the gearbox between 1000 and 1400 Eu!
Handling, comfort and fuel economy are OK. It runs excellent on high contents of salad oil in the diesel fuel! For the given length certainly the most roomy hatchback.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
