    When did you buy the car?

    Bought while the franchise was running a sale. Recieved two years free servicing. I also opted to extend the warranty for a further 3 years for a little extra.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    What was the dealer like?

    Dealer was good, dealt with them before. The trade in for my previous polo could have been better though.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Great. Very quick for it's size through the gears. Big engine in a wee car. Will happily cruise on the motorway and return over 50mph. On the other hand the low profile tyres are expensive and transmit a some road noise.

    What's it like to park?

    Great to park, good visibility, resposive throttle and steering. You get used to judging the front and back position of the car quickly.

    What's most practical about your car?

    I have never worried about it breaking down.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Trip computer - gives me all the information that i need from outside temperature, ave speed, mpg, journey time etc.
