Well, this was my first car and I started off looking at my options in the entry level segment as in the likes of Alto and Eon. After taking each of them for a testdrive, I was sure that this was not what I wanted. Moved on, tried the i20, well it's a very comfortable car but obviously the petrol version is not for enthusiasts and yes quite expensive too! The engine felt dead, too lazy. And one fine day, it so happened that as I was returning home from the market, there stood this guy under a huge umbrella with a VW Vento for a testdrive. You know, guys like me, we never let go of such opportunities! Well, I never had any slightest intentions for the vento but still stopped by, and asked him about the polo. Two days later this guy came to my house with a silver polo! Well, quite hesitantly, I sat in it and took off. All I can remember is a beautiful opera coming to my mind. Yes, this was it. This was what I was looking for. The car had the right driving dynamics. It was another way of saying when it comes to cars, it's always after the Germans. Beautiful design, not loud at all like the i20, just sheer elegance, calm and bold styling. I was so immersed in the car that I missed a corner stone and ran over it. Oops! But yes, you press the pedal a bit harder, and the 3-pot engine does complain a bit. But in a very sweet way you'll love it. Yes you're right, I was head over heels for this car. My very purpose of living came to a point that it should be for this car. I so badly wanted a higline red Polo. Okay, so we sat down, worked out the costs, and I was quite surprised. It is quite high for a hatch back. And as we already had a hatcback at home, then came the question should we pay so much and get another hatchback too??? That's how I ended up buying my silver VW Vento diesel. Well, the diesel is a whole different story, it's quite a punch. You'll immediately realise it's torque dragging you all the way with it. The only thing that concerned me was the diesel clatter that became more obvious after like six months. Also, it squeaks a little when going through gutters if the door sills are not clean. Apart from these two factors, it's an absolutely amazing car. Also, you'll notice how the car stabilises when you attain speeds above 100, unlike the Japanese counterparts. The suspension feels great. Plus you'll love the ergonomically designed seats. The best part is that I got her delivered on a Feb 14th, and so goes our love story!

    Horrible experience with Vento...I think company earns more in spare parts and maintenance then of by selling car.

    1. The following problems can occur any time (happened to me). 1.1 The 4 injectors can fail any time. (in my case 3 injectors failed). The company says the fuel quality is the problem. When pointed out that other diesel cars don’t have this problem, the company says, it is your bad luck. The cost per injector is around 25000 rupees.(so reserve 1 lakh for this) 1.2 The steering can get jam any time.(in my case the steering is not free). The cost is around 70,000. 1.3 The AC cooling coil is so thin, that it can leak any time. (In my case I have experienced leak in cooling coil). The cost is around 25000. 2. The resale value of the car after company service period is one third. 3. The company’s response/attitude to complaint is very negative.
