Volkswagen Polo 2008 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Volkswagen Polo 2008 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • VW Polo electrical faults

    They have been able to identify faults, and should have a record of what they are, but it would appear that there is an underlying fault that is causing the problem that they have not been able to find. Continue to press the dealer and VW and ask for direct assistance from the company to resolve this issue. Other than that I would suggest you take the car to an independent service agent that specializes in VWs, one prepared to dig deeper, and have them go over the car for you.

  • VW Polo electrical fault

    It apparently has an intermittent fault and while they can be hard to trace it is perfectly reasonable for you to want a solution. I would maintain the rage at your dealership, certainly seek advice from consumer affairs people, and keep pressing VW for a solution.

  • My first car

    BUYING used is not going to cost you as much as buying new, but you need to know about cars or have the help of someone who does. Otherwise, buy new and get the security of a warranty. The new car will also be safer. Generally they have more safety features built into them and will probably use less fuel than an older car. Look at the Mazda 2, Toyota Yaris, Nissan Tiida, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Getz and VW Polo.
