2001 Volkswagen Polo Confortline 1.2 petrol from Portugal
I just do not sell it because I am still paying it!
Engine fault light appears all the time.
The instrument panel sometimes starts blinking and the light fades off.
The cover of the wheels comes off a lot!
The engine fault orange light appears since the car was 1000 km. Not even after more than 10 times the dealer fixed the problem. The answer they give is that the problem is I drive too much on the city. it’s normal, Polo is a city car!
I am tired of buying them. Now, the car have only 2.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Re the Exhaust warning light - I used to see that very frequently, especially when the weather was very cold or very hot (below 0 centigrade, or above 30) ; by the time I had taken it to the dealer the light had "fixed itself". My Polo is 4 years old, and I've just had to pay a fortune on maintenance, over and above the annual service - £300 on a new cam-belt, and I'm having problems with my Throttle housing (another £600 on the way.) It has been a lovely car, but is showing its age now (after only 25000 miles. Its been nice, fun car to drive (very nippy!), especially in the 3-year warranty period, but it is time to get rid of it.
