Konrad purchased this Volkswagen Polo new with additional options for $43,000 (including all on-road costs). Konrad wouldn’t buy this car again because: “Not fast enough, had problems with it and don’t want to experience that again.”
The issues I had was the mirrors needed to be replace because it made a funny noise and the rubbers were coming.
After being replaced they didn’t close at the same time and were making the noise again after 3 months. Another issue was the squeaking back brakes every time I reversed. Happened in the first week of ownership.
Eight months after they managed to fix the problem. The paint was peeling. The good thing was the engine didn’t have problem which was great.
The 10 months of ownership was great while it lasted. The DSG is an interesting gearbox. Was fun with the paddles. The cabin felt great but did rattle and squeaked which was annoying. Hard to find aftermarket wheels to fit.
I purchased this car with the 5 years warranty and also got the 3 year serving package for free. The dealership that I bought from were great. Gave me a loan car when I needed it.
Happy with the price and features. A car at this price point is hard to come by with everything you need (almost everything).
This car had all the options you could get, Luxury Pack, Sound & Vision Pack, and Driver Assistance Pack. Only wished it came with lane active assist. The seats aren’t full leather.
The performance was great. After 1 month I decided to do a stage 1 tune which was worth it. I also placed a iDrive device to get rid of the lag. Made the car faster and smoother. The fuel economy was really great achieving 5.5l/100km on the highway and 7.0l/100km around town.
All the technology was fantastic. The AEB was really good. It really works. All the parking aids very handy.
The digital cluster is one of the best in the industry. The infotainment system was great but did glitch from time-to-time.
The 18-inch wheels performed quite well. Ride comfort was great on any road. Handling is truly amazing in this car. It’s front-wheel drive but feels like all-wheel drive around the corners.
