U Should'v Heared It. . . — Polo Classic 1.6!! I used to call it the White Bullet because of it's exclusive preformances, this car made wonders, it may sound scary but true - the Golf 5 GTI, Beemer 330i as well as the Merc Kompressor C200 didn't stand any chance to this White Bullet, we obviously played with it's engine... It's gas mileage was great because of the chip it had and i could maintain it.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Mine was faster, safe and comfortable.

Cons: Dangerous

Very Nice Car! — Awsome student car, great fuel consumption yet the performance is still respectable! When I bought the car, I had to change the clutch, cam belt, control arm bushes and had to service it, because the previous owner did not service it often enough and the service history was faked.. But after that repairs, it has performed great and i'm very happy with it!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Big fuel saver! Nice performance!

Cons: Be careful when buying second hand, owners tend to drive the cars very hard.

My Polo — Performance – acceleration : correct, braking : bad, handling : good Build Quality – Excellent Appearance – Cost of Ownership – gas : 5,5l/100km don't drink à lot Fun Factor – is this car fun to drive? Not at all. Just a car to go to one point to another.

Pros: Low cost of ownership, good engine even if only 75hp

Cons: Braking, noise of diesel engine ...

My Vw Polo — i dont like the fact a tree fell on it! it accelerates really well off the mark, ive beaten many a car from the lights that have bigger engines, it brakes amazingly, handles like its on rails, my chair squeaks but it is 4! black metallic black paintwork looks amazing when its clean... i love to drive it, it is a bit boring inside, just standard but i have alloys and tho people run into it (seriously im like a magnet for bad drivers) its fine, someone wrote their car off running into the back of me, whereas all it did was dint my back a bit...

Pros: everything

Cons: i only chose a 3 door so its hard to fill it!

Most Fun Diesel Hatch — Polo TDI 1900. One of the best small cars! Well priced. Very lite on fuel. Acceleration is amazing, have to love the turbo. Handling very responsive. Services prices isn't to bad for a diesel(15000km(7500km oil change)). The interior is frech and young but with a sensbilety to it. Lots of fun to drive.

Pros: Cost

Cons: Engin maintenance expensive.

Die Polo, Die — This polo has a 1600cc fuel injection engine which makes it allright in straight line acceleration. However come summer this motor struggles even at sea level. Handling is not as good as Fiesta s although braking is pretty good especially if you have some higher-end tyres. This car is very fun to drive however - especially in medium traffic situations. Build quality is average which the interior quality deteriorating substantially now after 4 years . There are no major mechanical issues thusfar however and that is a positive. The appearance of polo s in general is perceived as feminine and my car is no exclusion. It is "pretty" but does not convey the sporty look I like in a car. Perhaps lowered suspension would do the trick I would recommend this car to anybody who likes the styling and is not particularly concerned about the rest.

Pros: My Hermanus/Gansbaai numberplate, Performance when its cold outside

Cons: Ride, Handling, Baggage capacity, Stock sound system

A Very Nice First Car, Performance Wasn't Bad For A 1.2, Bad Handling — For a first car it was comfortable, nice extras and is hard as nails. The only issue with it was the handling, it is terrible around corners - rolls like hell! Apart from that I would definitely recommend it as a run-around or a first car.

Pros: - Nice looks
- Very reliable
- comfortable

Cons: - Expensive
- Poor handling
- Clutch is too soft

Does Was It Says It Will Do. Not Bad. A Good Commuter — I had this car for three years. For a 1.4, it had plenty of speed and handled well. Compared to the opposition cars in the range, it had many comforting features both internally, as well as design wise.

Pros: Reliable, quick, cheap  on fuel

Cons: Not many. The hooks that hold the straps on the back boot board break easily, and the plastic covers inside that cover the seat belt came loose quickly.
