Pros : Good looks

Cons : Pulls to the left


Hi All,  I purchased the VW in Oct'10 it has been pulling to the left since day 3 of purchase...the cust service complete disaster.PLS DO NOT BUY THIS CAR...........this has been my first car and a complete disaster...I  I have been to the service station which is situated in Lalbaucgh which is on the other side of Mumbai 4 times in 4 weeks now. when I only expected to take it there once I have completed 15000 kms or 12 months. The 1st visist I was informed that there was a problem with the allignment and I waited there till 7pm only to see a scratch on my car....which the body work expert worsened by scrapping it with some kind of sponge that entire part of the car lost its shine completely....On my way back home i was in a dilema to know that the pulling problem still persists. Called the service station again and they stated they would need to see the car again. The service guys came to pick up the car next week and called me stating that the engineer has tried the car and there seems to be no problem with the same. I left to the service station before i could go to work. To my surprise the engineer admitted later stating that the car was indeed still pulling to the left. I wondered what was the engineer doing in the 1st place. They have now changed the tyre set to JK tyres today. Will test it for a couple of days to see if it still persists I will be dragging them to CONSUMER COURT. Anyone with the same problem wanting to join pls call me.Sandeep - 9833446297 - Mumbai

    Hello Sandeep, thanks for your review. Can you please tell me which model of polo you bought? Petrol or diesel?... I am waiting for my VW polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline and will be delivered in 15 days. I am very sorry for you. I hope the problem will be resolved soon. Please keep updated your post. Also you post your issues in TEAM-BHP to get your issue solved soon. Regards, Sriram M

    Hi Sriram, the car is now pulling to the right......! So i have kind of given up ,, but i am not letting it spoil my Holidays so letting my Legal advisor do the rest for me. How about your car, is it all fine?

    Hi friend, In all Volkswagen polo and Skoda fabia (dont know about rest of the cars) have a feature to keep the driver active. I noticed it and went to the service station and they clarified me and asked me to take a testdrive in their demo car, it was also having the same. recently i drove skoda fabia it was also having a pull towards left. Its not a complaint

    i have seen asimillar review earlier also where POLO CO-dealer nor attending the complaint. There ahs to be a mass movement againt this includinf informing media otherwise many people will be trapped.

  • sriram |09 Dec,2010 09:42:44 PM

    i checked with around 10 car owners of polo. No one faced this issue. Monday i will be delivered with my Polo. I will check it before i drive from Show room.... Thanks...

    hii, i have got the same model since june, the car is totally incredible i found the only prob is that the height is bit less, no arm rest, side mirrors should be operated automatically... i have put alloy wheels witch dia of 15' and tyres are bit wider and low profile. i neva face that allignment or any other prob. gud luck

    sriram |13 Jan,2011 03:29:07 PM

    wat was the cost of alloy wheels for Polo?.... Have you put any other extra accesories?

    CarDekho Team |25 Jan,2011 11:55:43 AM

    Alloy wheels for VW Polo start at 15,000 Rs and go up to 25,000Rs depending on the design you pick. Thanks, CarDekho Team

    Those people who own other cars just have a look at Polo, have a test drive and see its quality then compare your car with Polo. The all above comments about comparison is just a comparison on the papaer.. VW Polo is a great car in this segment. Do you really need a steering mounted controls on your car?... It is not fully loaded with additional features, but it is the best car in this segment than any other.. I own a VW Polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline which costs 5.08 Lacks which is cheaper than i20 Era Petrol & Swift VXI. I am very happy with my car.. Steering is very soft and gear box is very efficient & soft... I get mileage of 13 in city with AC at Medium rate. In highways i get 16... Mind you i am not a drive expert & i use clutch very often...

    ankush |16 Oct,2011 08:55:23 PM

    Vishnu |30 May,2011 07:41:41 PM

    I own polo tdi highline(oct 2010) The car is really good. not only my opinion in indian consumer survey polo got first in its class for customer satisfaction. polo gives me 14 in heavy traffic and 16-19 in normal traffic. in highways polo gave me 24.7 in good driving(80-100Kmph)in good 4 lane road and 22 in normal kerala highways

  • varun |17 Feb,2011 10:26:07 PM

    car is good, but v.v. bad after sales service. engineers are incompetent to find just EPC fault.

Its not a complaint If you want to check take any polo or new fabia(not sure about othercars)on a straight road in a speed not less than 60kmph.Leave your hand from the steering, after 3-5 seconds you can see the car moving towards left. this will make the driver alert

  • Ramakrishnan |07 May,2011 12:00:37 PM

    D0nt prefer vw brand. poor service. faults ratio v high am having same problem for polo highline TDI am serviced 8th till not rectified.
