The polo is a good buy to be honest for the price. I would go for it if i still have a choice

The maintenance cost for it is normal. Blame the GST and you know who

I have a classmate who works in the stocklist. He say actually the things are very affordable but you know who raise the tax, add GST and car companies have no choice to raise the price otherwise they will all go bankrupt just by service only

Thx... U're using it for nearly 4yrs...no major issue...thats great...

Only periodical service is expensive.... I'm comparing it with jazz...also resale value for vw is not so good...

In dilemma...jazz vs polo hb

For Hatchbacks, if you want bigger interior space, cheaper maintenance and RV, go for Jazz, else go for Polo HB 1.6NA for the remaining good factors. Get 1.6NA with 6speed aisin gearbox if you do not want headache later. The most obvious differences between Jazz with Polo are solid car feeling with better car handling.

My wife drive polo 1.6 hb, almost 3 years..
Until today there are issues happened but solved by the sc..first, when newly buy u can feel like doors not well close/tight, after check sc replaced all the rubber lining, solved.. 2nd year, when do alignment, the foreman told me the disk got dent/bengkok a bit..but also replaced by sc then..because defect from factory..

My opinion handling, stability, torque, manual gear better than my honda city gm2.. fuel con also almost the same ave 15-17km/l..most important buy the car u likes, not people like..

The only drawback, cabin and boot quite small..

There is no advantage buying a Polo compared to a B segment Jap car like City or Vios unless you just want the badge. The Polo is not better to drive, no advantage in fuel economy, it is less reliable, more expensive parts and higher servicing cost. At the end of the day its second hand value is much worse. The Polo is just for badge snobs. Period.

My family have the Polo 1.6, Vios, City and Jazz. The difference in handling, steering and high speed composure is very obvious, not to mention the fit and finish is a league above especially compared to Honda.

If you just want a A-B car to putter along for your commute, any B-segment will do. But if you are looking for a bit of fun on the curvy segments in your daily routes, you might find yourself having a better experience in the Polo. The chassis is just that much better.

Of course, there are also downsides like the tin milo roof, some issues with parts durability and of course, VW aftersales.
