2000 Volkswagen Polo 1.4 TDi Trendline Hatchback 1.4 TDI from Portugal
Excellent car, if it wasn't for this problem
On completing 90000Km the gearbox failed to go from 5th to 4th. A 70% garantee coverage from the dealer over a new gearbox (I payed for everything else - man-work too) took car e of the substitution (not without some smart remarks over my driving) and a new 2 year garantee - which has been extendedly used, since the gear box failed again at 105000Km, 118000Km and 120000Km. The dealer refuses to admit that this is a serious problem, and the imported redirects me to the dealer. Volkswagen in Germany doesn't even reply.
Repeated failure and dealer's poor service make me regret buying this car. I don't think I'll ever by in the Volkswagen Group again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
