1989 Volkswagen Polo Match 1.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Sturdy and reliable but needs to lighten up and have fun!
Glovebox lid fell off.
Small patch of rust on boot lid and bottom of driver's door.
The car is comfy and reliable, but the poor performance and handling is what is going to force me to change my car. The lack of a fifth gear is a big oversight for comfortable motorway cruising. Now I have uprated the brakes they are not so bad, but still require a lot pressure on the pedal. It is great for what it was designed to do, that is being cheap to run but still being comfortable and of good quality, but unfortunately that is not really what I am after.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
