1996 Volkswagen Polo CL diesel from UK and Ireland
Great economical car with style
The car started to get very noisy with quite bad vibrations, and was a very bad started. We replaced the glow plugs, fuel filter and oil filter amongst other things, but nothing solved the problem.
It is still like this unfortunately... possibly worn engine mounts?
The polo is probably the best car I have owned.
It is a good looking car, which hasn't dated at all in my opinion.
The interior is comfortable, cosy and modern, with rear head-rests.
It is incredibly economical, doing over 50mpg.
It's quite slow, but nippy enough around town and at higher speeds ie on the motorway. The acceleration is poor which is the downside to these cars.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
