    Hello, I have a 2000 Polo 6n2, recently it started misfiring, I first changed the spark plugs, still struggling, then changed the HT leads, and still the same issue. I did a compression test and got between 200-230 psi between all for cyclinders, with none being too low from one another. Taking...

    Hi all, Quick question. My partner's Polo seems to have an issue with the handbrake. When I release it, the light comes off but the brake itself doesn't seem to release. I'm assuming it's stuck due to rust or just not moving much. Any suggestions for a quick fix to release it? Many thanks, FS

    My girlfriend is looking to buy a new (used) supermini type car soon. Fiesta, Polo, Corsa, etc. I've tried to persuade her to buy a big German car with a 6 cylinder engine, but she's unmoved. She wants a small car that's easy to park and to manoeuvre around busy streets (lives on the edge of...

    Hi everyone, I have a VW polo 2001 with a factory fitted Open Air Webasto Roof, which I have owned for several years now. I was stopped on the street a while ago by a Polo fan who told me that the roof was quite rare and worth a bit of money. I am now looking to sell my car and wondering if...

    Hello, My polo is showing the error code 16518 Active/static - O2 sensor bank 1 sensor 1, no activity detected. I have changed both O2 sensors and fixed a broken wiring connection, which has made a significant improvement to the engine performance, however the error code is still returning...

    So on Friday I picked up my first ever VW. It wasn't the one I had been after for a while, but after missing my shot at seeing the perfect (to me) Scirocco, I decided to not wait any longer & go for a great looking 2015 Polo BlueGT 1,4 TSI to be honest, I'm liking it a lot. I've got a regular...
