What used car should I buy?

Answered by CarsGuide 14 Jun 2019

Volkswagen Polo 2012: Gearbox failed

Answered by CarsGuide 17 May 2019

It’s not a common fault. Given that your car has only done 94,000 km I would suggest you contact VW to see if they might come to the party with at least part of the cost of repairs as a gesture of good will.
