2000 Volkswagen Polo Pack Clim 1.4 16v from France
A car with problems that seem irreparable
- Gear box is almost impossible to use, it looks like you will break everything when you want to use the first gear.
- Clutch became really "hard" and needed to be changed at 88000 km.
- Gear box leaks oil.
- One day, EPC light and CHECK lights came on. I took my Polo back to the VW dealer. They changed randomly two sensors, and broke the box under the car radio. 5 days later, the car was unable to move from a red light, and CHECK light come again... The engine was losing power suddenly, I don't know why because I brought back the car to the VW dealer, definitely (it was still covered by the warranty)
A very nice looking car with a high level of equipment, but ruined by a poor reliability.
My advice: avoid this car. I lost a lot of money and time because of it. Not to mention the dangerousness of the car when the engine starts to lose power while you're on a main road with huge traffic..
Really disappointed by VW.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
