If it's the Polo Hatchback, I dislike the fact that it is stripped down in terms of safety.

2 airbags with no ESC.

slightly better than axias, peroduas and protongs.

imo, too small for my liking. Golf is a better option and for the price point, better you go with City or Vios. larger spaces for same price. Only difference is the badge, which tbh, VW doesn't mean much in luxury these days.

First 2 service I just tell them I want normal service only.
During service go through the list of things to that needs to be service..
Second service they ask me to change wiper I just say no.
Till now I haven't change the wiper lol.

This is my first service 2014 October

This is my second service 2015 October, the person at the service counter never advise me to change spark plug, my mileage only 27k

My third service.. 2016 October.. some of the items in second service I do it in 3rd.

The standard service schedule for VW is 1 year / 15,000KM. So you have to average out to get a fair comparison. (other cars normally 6months/10,000KM or 3months/5,000KM)

This car when it first came out years back, I went for a test drive at Glenmarie. Tested together with a friend. So 3 people in the car including the salesman. I sit at the back. I tested back to back with another Golf 1.4 TSI too.

I myself found the rear suspension very jumpy when go over taller road bumps. Golf 1.4TSI don't have such problem. City is better in this area. This alone already put me off.
Looking at the interior plastics and assembly quality wise, Polo is far better than City. Steering wheel is typical continental feel ,nice weighted.

Hi Polo owners,

I just went for a Polo 1.6 HB test drive (Penang) and and I love it nod.gif
However when I ask about the maintenance cost, this is what the SA shows me and the price seems to be higher than what was discussed in the forum.

Can anyone verify the maintenance cost?

15mths/15K - RM 741.50
24mths/30K - RM 1090.00
36mths/45k - RM 995.00
48mths/60K - RM 2,500.40

Thanks smile.gif

About right, I think few months ago they revised the maintenance schedule. You will notice every service they will replace the air filter and Aircond pollen filter. Parts and labour for these 2 items sum up higher
