Volkswagen Polo III (2000 - 2002)
Last updated 5 May 2015
Facelifted Polo III, still with an upmarket image. Better than pre-facelift and all now have power steering.
Not as reliable or well built as its image might suggest. Appetite for front tyres and front brakes.

121,281 Polos and Lupos recalled because tension cracks in vacuum pipe to brake servo may occur. Pipes to be checked and replaced if necessary.
