1984 Volkswagen Polo C 1.05 from UK and Ireland
When can I drive it again, it's not a car, it's a life :D
Driver's seat worn.
Driver's seat cord to pull forward snapped.
General condition was appalling. Engine was half dismantled.
Not bad for £50(y).
I have driven this car once or twice, and myself put up a nice 25 miles LOL.
At the moment I've got my mum driving it, and she hates it ha, just because it doesn't have any fancy gizmo's like A/C, brake servos, all that jazz. With me, I love it.
Like in one of the other reviews, somebody said "without a brake servo, applying the brakes requires more pressure". True! It makes you more focused on your stopping distance and how you respond.
To be fair, this car doesn't drive like my last one, a Vauxhall Cavalier 2.0, but hey, I like comfort, not speed. OK, my Cavvy was nice, but considering repair costs, I would go CLASSIC every time (Y). I've had this car a year and it's taken me that long to MOT prep it (won't trust anyone else, as I'm not paying stupid prices for silly repairs I can do). Passed the MOT first time :D and it's running around again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
