Good day everyone. I've been thinking of buying a new CKD Polo 1.6, may I know any problems with the car the owners have faced? I know it has the conventional 6 Speed Auto instead of DSG transmission. But just want some feedback from current owners about reliability. Thanks 👍

driving the sedan type.
so far very happy with the car although some issues as below:
- service will be slightly expensive, but it's yearly or 15K basis, and it's german car so manyak mahal loh. devil.gif
- the car i feel a bit underpower, but feels very solid and stable.
- i feel that HB type is faster than sedan type, maybe it's just my feeling only. whistling.gif

ohya, according to SC, polo 1.6 type service will be more expensive on the 2nd, 4th, 6th, etc... specially the 4th one.

Even if it's 20k more expensive, is it still cheaper to maintain and fun to drive than the polo, vios, city or jazz?

In my brief test drive....I feel that it's more fun....better handling, better engine + gearbox, and better interior quality.

Not sure about the maintenance, I guess it is similiar to the other Sushis. But I do know the battery costs twice as much as a normal battery due to the i-stop system.

Please share the receipt, also SC location. I'm going 2nd service this year and observed most SC quoting around 1.2k based on polo 1.6 owner's feedback

Actually just delaying some items such as spark plug, air filter, pollen filter from 2nd service to 3rd service.
Doesn't matter how, still bleeding blood, just 1 year later, haha.

Sir,
with all respect to you.
now i only realize that Volkswagen Polo Sedan 1.6 CKD is Indian car.

all the while, what i know is VW is German Car, and Polo Sedan 1.6 is build/assemble in India (CBU unit) and CKD in our local plant.

sigh.... bangwall.gif bangwall.gif

chassis maybe same with polo hatch, but rear suspension definitely different from polo hatch. About 3cm taller on the rear, different coil spring and absorbers (manufactured from Gabriel India) used, with tuning toward softest at best to suit for India pothole road. Many Indian owner been complaining the soft floating drive with comparison to Korean cars which become stiffer in recent years.
