Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the sound the car makes with the back box

Polo 6n - A Fantastic Car — The Polo 6N is a fantastic car. The 1,6 straight 4 fits perfect for the car and by using almost no money it is a pretty fast car of it's class. The only thing to be worried about is the gearbox otherwise no problems and just normal maintenance then it runs. Fantastic milage with up to 20 km/l (47 miles/gallon(US)) (56.5 miles/gallon(UK)) With lowered suspension and wide tyres it is fantastic both on the roads and the track

Pros: It's a Volkswagen. They are just fantastic

Cons: There isn't enough rust ;)

The Best 1st Car One Can Have. — Great car for many duties, will get you anywhere. handling needs a bit of tuning because the wheel is a bit numb and more hp will be awesome. It's rather safe for driving for it's age: 2 airbags and abs system as a standard. the car itself is very stable. When you push this car to it's limits it's a lot of fun but the everyday driving is smooth and relaxed.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun and cheap

Cons: none

Polo Classic - The Green Machine. —

Such a brilliant buy. It didn't have a very high milage, can't remember right now what it was, but its was over 80 000 kilometers we got it for under 60 000 rand (around 5 000 USD). Its airconditioning was AMAZING! the cool air raced out of it as soon as you put it on and th heat was soo much in winter that you'd have to turn it down after about a minute. It was really sturdy as well, you felt like you were dammed safe if someone drove like an idiot and bashed into you. It handled really well too, we could race around corner and it stuck to the road damn well for its age. The performance was UNREAL! The accelartion speed was fantastic, as well as the breaking speed. I definately drove the bejeebus out of the car because it seemed to ache for more power! The fuel consumption was really good aswell and she was in very good condition when I got it. The only repairs we really had to make was wear and tear items. I only needed to replace the flange and get a new gear box (i am sure all new drivers need to do that at least once when they're starting out). Other than that, never serious problems. Very well built. The car was fun too! I named it The Green Machine, cause it went for ages and was almost like a go-kart kind of a drive. Also, its a very unassuming car which made it really fun to watch an Audi A3 loose to my cars handle and power.

Pros: Handles well, acceleration great, decceleration good, spacious.

Cons: bulky for tight parking, backseats a little strange, boot very high - effort to see out the back.
