Re: Volkswagen Polo

Have a 1.2 S (aircon). Been a pretty decent car. Needed new starter motor (50k) and clutch (60k).
Fuel 35mpg. Need better mpg so about to trade it in!

Re: Volkswagen Polo

I had fabia 1.2 12v AC is standard on Skoda, had it for 28k no issues, exept fuel consumption, I got 35mpg too, overall, rubbish!  now cannot get below 46mpg out of a cracking great 1.9TDi Elegance!  What a difference, engine could be more refined, and 105BHP is good, but 130 better!  Only thing is the diesel surge can be intersting sometimes!

Re: Volkswagen Polo

I Love my Polo. I've had a Clio 54 plate, Corsa 56 plate and Fiesta 57 plate before it.
I got the polo second hand, 05 plate. It has, so far, been the best tuition car by far. It's a diesel.

Re: Volkswagen Polo

Just got 60 plate 1.2 se tdi, previously had a 56 plate 1.4 s tdi. Looks great, difficult to tell difference between it and a Golf (which is no bad thing !). Very, very smooth , lighter feel to it but a bit less pulling power, you notice it uphill sometimes.

Goes very well and accelerates well if given enough revs. Overall feels much more like a petrol, lighter clutch, and few more revs to get away rather than the old one which was much more 'diesely' with a heavier clutch and a more forgiving nature if not quite revved enough. Lovely car to drive though and in a way I'm pleased that it does behave like that, it's maybe not quite such a difference then between driving this and a petrol car that they are likely to practice in or buy for themselves.

Re: Volkswagen Polo

One downside to the new Polo is; the instructor is not able to lock the nearside door when seated in the passenger seat.

Clients do not have the presence of mind to lock doors when stationary at Traffic Lights.

Mine can't, and it's a 10 plate. but I automatically push the lock button when I get in anyway.

One downside to the new Polo is; the instructor is not able to lock the nearside door when seated in the passenger seat.

Clients do not have the presence of mind to lock doors when stationary at Traffic Lights.

Can the new Polo not be set to auto lock?

Mine can't, and it's a 10 plate. but I automatically push the lock button when I get in anyway.

Next time you have the car serviced ask them if it is possible to set autolock via the laptop.  Apparently my Jetta  can be plugged into the laptop and have auto lock set.

Re: Volkswagen Polo

Cheers nigel will try it.

Phil, there are parts of Morecambe that are not very nice, and thats putting it mildly.

IJmoore. checking doors are shut properly is part of the cockpit, but locking them is not as far as I know.

Re: Volkswagen Polo

I discuss locking on cockpit lesson, its something I always do, I think its a good security measure.

Not keen on auto lock, auto wipers, auto light etc as it discourages thoughtful use of them.

Yake the numberous drivers last sat in a torrential downpour without lights on, some with auto light facility (Audi BMW etc)

Re: Volkswagen Polo

ij moore, I can see what they say about noisy/buzzy but thats at low revs when up to cruising speed it's quiet for a diesel. With regards to mpg I've just filled up after 22 hours of tuition and worked it out as 52 mpg.

Re: Volkswagen Polo

I can get very similar from 1.9tdi teaching, so I'll stick to that. 76.4mpg is my record so far, but regularly get 68-70mpg
