1989 Volkswagen Polo C from UK and Ireland
Hard work in the engine and undercarriage, but cheap to work on and worth it
Fuel tank leaked, which cost £75 to totally replace.
Radiator leaked, costing £60 to replace.
Oil leaked, but this was due to there being too much oil in, and it was working its way out to a normal level.
Car also had a slow puncture and 'clicking' sound, both in the front right wheel.
All of the above things happened within three months of me buying the car for £630 (the dealer had been asking for £795, so the haggling worked)
The body of the car is in good condition.
It runs well, and always starts first time, no matter what the weather or time of year.
It's a nippy car, handles well and the original seating is in perfect condition, with no need for seat covers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
