We purchased this great little VW polo off the original owner earlier this year in March and we no longer require it. One of the main reasons we purchased it was the motor and gearbox had been replaced under warranty by Gerald Slaven Volkswagen in March 2019, so the motor and box are just over 3 years old. It recently had new suspension fitted amd comes with aftermarket mags, it's goes and handles and looks great. It also has factory floor mats and boot liner, as well as tinted factory window v

Servicing

SIMILAR MODELS TO VOLKSWAGEN POLO

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: VOLKSWAGEN POLO (2010 TO 2017)

Polos with the seven-speed DSG transmission have proven to be potentially problematic as a relatively high number of transmission faults and failures have shown up in-service.

Make sure any DSG Polo shifts smoothly and cleanly, doesn't show a strange shift pattern and doesn't shudder on take off. If it does, the gearbox could be showing signs of wear.

Both the 1.2- and 1.4-litre petrol engines can suffer stretched timing chains and these need to be replaced. The 1.4 was also fitted with a suspect batch of pistons so a compression test is a good pre-purchase idea.

The Polo with the diesel engine was also caught up in VW's Dieselgate scandal and VW dealers are still recalling these to be fitted with new software.

Check with a dealer to discover if a particular car has been fixed yet or not.
