Great First Car, Good Run Around Its My Baby!! — nice car, handles well. built like a tank rarely breaks down but costs are steep when it does have problems. looks good only downside is it has really light interior for a dark coloured car. does tend to drink fuel a little too easily for my liking but is good on long journeys. i love my car and i think its fun to drive.

Pros: i love everything about my car its beautiful

Cons: the only thing about it that sucks is the fuel intake, its thirsty....a lot

Veedub, Hardly A Dud —

I love this car. The drive is amazingly smooth and the ride is very comfortable. It drives like a dream. The engine sound while inside the car is fairly quiet due to the good build and you feel amazingly safe and cosey whilst inside. However, due to this amazingly good build quality, it lacks performance. The car is only a 1.4 engine and so due to the good build it weighs the car down alot and therefore makes it a fairly slow car. This reduces the fun factor in the car, but for what it lacks in that department it almost certainly makes up for in the other departments. The brakes are very good as it is fitted with ABS braking and the handling is amazingly smooth. Its such an amazing car to drive. The appearance of the car is very cute and tidy. The engine layout is well structured and is hardly messy, compared to other cars such as the older hondas of its time. The inside of the car is tidy and everything is also very well thought up and structured. There are nice little compartments and little cup holders here and there jsut to help you feel like this car is your home away from home. It does 41 MPG so is quite reasonable on the fuel however, there are better cars than this of their time. But surely, they arent built as well as this car? The usual VW engines are very reliable and will go on forever just like the honda engines. Overall, its an amazing first car and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I bought mine at the bargain price of £1,700 at 92000 miles and I havnt looked back since.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Built amazingly well, will go on for ages, will never let you down, handling is very smooth, ride comfort is amazing and looks very sleak and sexy.

Cons: 0-60 speed is slow, isnt the best on fuel, lacks abit of fun due to acceleration

I Like It;) — I think, it's quite good car... it has only 60HP so, acceleration isn't amazing, but so far, it's enough for me. Engine is very quiet, reliable, never disappoint me:) Polo has a comfortable seats, so long travel isn't a problem:) handling... the steering is quite precision and suspension is hard enough so I enjoy to take the corners in this car;)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: fun:)

Cons: there are a lot of better cars

V.w Polo Gti — The performance is not amazing,but still quite nippy, being a 1.6 16v engine it manages to be adequate for the size of the car.The build quality has been pretty poor eg new clutch,gearbox,window regulators etc...The styling isn't to bad for a standard car,volkswagen have tried to make it sort of sporty eg.semi bucket seats,leather steering wheel,red trim on the door card,Gti decals etc.. The cost of running is ok,providing u don't have a heavy right foot,avrg mpg is 39.The car it self is great for the b roads where i live,but not ideal for very long journeys and is a reasonable thrill for a person looking for a first time hot hatch.I wouldn't recomend to any of my friends,as we are all looking for something that little quicker,but would recomend to someone who wants a little more power,than their average car.

Pros: Great first hot hatch,reasonable power, looks  and fuel economy

Cons: Parts can be very expensive if things go wrong

Lovely Reliable Car! — I think this car is great and for me it has excellent braking - I mean it really feels like you are slowing down using all four wheels rather than only the front two! It feels very solid - nice and heavy when the doors shut (I don't like flimsy doors). Yes, it uses petrol but nothing over what it should be (my average is about 10p per mile). I really enjoy this car :-)

Pros: Deceptively spacious for a small car

Cons: Doesn't have CD player though
