1987 Volkswagen Polo C 1.0 from UK and Ireland
A real bargain and great first car
The fuel tank was leaking slightly when I first purchased the car, this was soon sorted and no problems since.
Damp started to get into the car at 85000 miles. This was down to rust under the bonnet. This was soon sorted cheaply with no problems since.
This is my first own car although I have driven my parents for a few years before this. I don't really have a bad word to say about the car. It was bought for £100 after having a slight bump on the front. This cost £22 for a new wing and I was able to fit it myself. With a 1.0 litre engine it runs all day on a fiver, but can go when you need it to. The insurance was great too.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
