Driving a Polo again, I get why this car was a bestseller. It’s a nice companion to travel with. It’s roomy and has a nice finish. That’s why some buyers moved from a Golf to a Polo. There are a lot of options. A wide range of engines is available; a nice car. A completely new model will arrive soon, which means more of this Polo will be for sale. People will trade in their car. There is a relatively wide range of engines for such a small car. Of course there are a number of diesel engines, but pretty gasoline engines as well. More turbo engines were used after the facelift, which have more torque. You should ask yourself which engine you want in your Polo. ENGINES gasoline, diesel The number of cars for sale on Marktplaats show it’s a popular car.Over 2,500 Polos of this generation are for sale on Marktplaats. Prices start at 4,000-5,000 euros. If you spend more, the mileage and condition are better. It doesn’t matter which Polo you want; you can always find it. That’s the advantage of so many cars for sale. Of course there are relatively many Polo BlueMotions and the small diesel version because those were road tax exempt and had 14% additional tax liability for a while. The Dutch are susceptible to this. PRICES minimum, maximum Of course there are things to watch out for. With these models you can always find a problem on the Internet.You can find a lot, but that’s because there are many Polos. Don’t be disheartened by this. A Polo is relatively reliable. There are a number of things to watch out for, though. This goes for all modern diesel engines, but the BlueMotion (especially the road tax exempt version) were often bought by people who didn’t use it enough. The particulate filters get clogged, EGR valves fail… The EGR valve is a wear part. These are things to keep in mind. A low mileage doesn’t have to be a very good idea. The diesel engines are involved with the Dieselgate scandal. Check if the car has received the update. You don’t have to worry that the software update did strange things to the car. In the end it turned out to be not that bad, so that’s not a reason to walk away from it. The gasoline engines are often those nice TSI engines. The pre-facelift GTI has a 1.4 twincharger. This engine can have problems. It burns oil and engines have been replaced at a relatively low mileage. The post-facelift 1.8 is much better. The early TSI engines may produce a rattling sound when you
start.The timing chain tensioner has gone bad and the chain can skip. If you keep driving with this, you can get serious engine damage. Keep an eye on this. It may be a good idea that when you buy a Polo with a TSI engine, have it checked at the dealer. He’ll quickly see if everything is OK. The Polos with a DSG transmission have to shift seamlessly. It’s a double-clutch transmission. Changing gears can be done very fast, and it should. The clutch shouldn’t slip. You can tell by looking at the tachometer. It shouldn’t go up when you’re not accelerating. This could indicate something’s wrong. The Mechatronic unit, which regulates the valves and electronics, can break. All you can do is replace that unit. You can’t repair it. Anyway, the DSG should shift smoothly. If it does, the transmission is probably fine. Of course you check the oil level. You’re all responsible drivers.Do this for the TSI engines. They have long life engine oil, which means an oil change every 30,000 km (19,000 miles). They do burn oil sometimes, especially the older models. Just check the oil level, especially when you just bought the car and need to get a feel for it. If it burns some oil, that’s OK. Next, a more cosmetic thing. Cars with daylight running lights in the headlights can show a discoloration in the glass.That’s no drama, unless it really bothers you. You can pay attention to these things and get a discount. A funny one: the fuse box is near my feet. That’s a common location. You can kick it, accidentally dislodging fuses. This causes strange electronic errors. If you have a Polo with errors, check the fuses and give them all a push. This may solve all kinds of issues with little effort. 2 problems with the satnav. The Discover Media satnav can ignore exits and respond slowly. This may be caused by a defective regulating unit. Sometimes it helps to reboot the satnav. If the problem occurs more often, it has to be replaced. So be it. Another thing concerning the satnav systems. In cold weather, the touchscreen may not respond or pushes buttons by itself.That’s a known issue. If it’s really bad, the touchscreen needs to be replaced. This is one of 70 cars. We borrowed it at Ames Occasioncentrum. Ames turns 70 this year, making it the oldest Volkswagen dealer. They bought 70 Polos with different mileages and prices. You get to choose from 70 different mileages, prices, and colors. All these Polos have
