Look and Style Good Comfort Good Pickup Good Mileage Good Best Features Build Needs to improve ASS Overall Experience Good Hi All & Polo Owners, I have booked the VW polo 1.2L Petrol Trendline and awaiting for delivery in November mid. I need to know some thing that i mentioned below. 1) Is no Free Service for Polo? I think all other companies provide 3 free services. Why not in polo? 2) I read many articles in BHP & Cardehko etc. Some issues i noted on paper as * Some one posted a Pull up issue on left part of the car. * In Team BHP site, i see a strange issue posted some thing like Turbo charger failed, but the actual problem is not yet found by VW (please visit Please update me about your car status and answer for quries. Thanks & Regards, Sriram M

    Also can any one mention whether the VW Polo has tubeless tyres?

  • Hemant Malhotra |01 Oct,2010 10:18:54 PM

    Yes the POLO has tubeless tyres...

  • Pradeep |02 Oct,2010 11:53:02 AM

    You have booked yourself an Petrol version of the POLO, soo there's no question about Turbo charger failure in your car..! lol TDI is for diesel engines by the VW stable... And regarding the free service, yes - there are no free services from VW stable... You have to pay for the services done at the workshop ( VW ) I myself have booked the VW POLO highline ( Petrol ) and will be expecting the delivery by mid nov.. When did you actually book the car? And form where..? Thankz!

    Thanks for your answers pradeep. I booked the Car on August mid. VW dealer promised me to deliver car at maximum with in or on 90 days. I am from Madurai. The dealer name is Ramani Cars. I also thought to book Highline. But since this is my first car, I decided to satisfy with Trendline as it is fill exactly on my budget frame. When ever i visit VW showroom, I see a one or two polo cars on diagnosis at the VW workshop. I asked what is the problem with that. They refused to tell. So i started to suspect about Polo now a days after reading some posts in Team BHP. Where are you from Pradeep? When did you book and what is your experience at VW showroom?... Any idea about when we need to get the service & cost of it?

    There's no issues what so ever Sriram... Couple of my friends have brought the VW POLO and are really going gaga over the fit and finish over this product... And as told, the services are paid. It's not like the Japanese cars where in they have 3 services with an year and all.. In VW it's lke prior to 15,000kms or one year ( Whichever is earlier )... Im from Mumbai sir, booked my car like Mid Aug - just like you.. Well the cost for the service once a year would be like 7k for the petrol and 10K for the diesel, its a rough guess seeing my friends owning this beauty... It might be on the lesser side as well... Being once a year, Im sure 7k is worth investing on the german metal... lol

  • yogesh |03 Oct,2010 02:43:41 PM

  • kunal satija |28 Oct,2010 08:11:56 PM

    Hi, i want to buy a petrol car. the options which i see are hyundai i20/polo/skoda fabia (1.2 petrol). But i read somewhere about some serious issues with i20 (like ac cooling, rattling) and m not sure about the mileage these cars offer. please suggest me which is the best one regarding mileage. thanks

  • Ankit |31 Oct,2010 11:30:24 PM

    Hi Frds - After a lot of search, I have narrowed in on either i20 or Polo. But i am worried about the Mileage factor of i20. Also the delivery time of Polo in Delhi is greater than 3 months. Can someone enlighten me on mileage of i20 & also if there are any issues with either of these cars. My budget is something around 5Lakhs.

  • sriram |01 Nov,2010 01:05:56 PM

    Polo is better choice... Worth the waiting... Also look out for new Skoda Fabia... It has many features than Polo but bad look...

  • Prof Prasad |02 Nov,2010 03:02:04 PM

    Dear Mr Sriram, Do you still advise POLO in the face of newly introduced Toyota Etios?

  • sriram |03 Nov,2010 09:40:25 PM

    I dont know about Etios. But i am sure myself that Etios is going to be normal hatchback and not much better than Polo. We have to wait until etios is launched to see the actual difference. I found Skoda Fabia has better features than Polo at the same cost but still i gone with Polo. In next two weeks i will get my Red Beauty 1.2L Petrol Trendline....

    hi how about interior look and space compare to swift, i10,i20,fabia

    sriram |23 Nov,2010 06:55:50 PM

    Hi Udhay, exterior and interior of polo is best among all hatches. Space is not as good as i20. i20 has larger space. Polo and swift have same space, but swift may be very slightly more space than polo... i dont know about fabia's space. I hope it will be like swift. Interiors : Polo, Fabia, i20, i10, Swift Exteriors : Polo, i20, swift, Fabia, i10 Space : i20, Fabia, Swift, Polo & i10. i10 is not a premium hatch back. So it can not be compared with others. You can feel the Space difference in polo only with i20, not with any other cars....
