We got this car as a courtesy car whilst our Peugeot was being repaired. And we counted the days till we could hand this piece of crap back.
First of all, we found that the car was very 'boxy'. Including the interior - everything seemed to have very square edges.
The worst feature about this car was that it drank petrol like you could not believe. We were putting £10 in the car every two days. Now you might think that we were doing long journeys then? Wrong. Our 2.0L Peugeot that was being fixed at the garage was only using £10 a week.
Why anyone would buy one of these pants cars is beyond me. I think that you also find that the Polo is very much a women's car. Come on women, you've got better taste than that.
The gearstick was also very difficult to get my head around. Again, it was very block-ish. If changing gear, you had to be very straight and sharp with your movements as there was no smoothness allowed.
I could understand that people may buy the Polo because of it's price, but all I can say is that there are much better cars out there within the same price range.
We were lucky, it was just a courtesy car.
