I don't know where to turn, but you might be able to help. I have a 2015 VW Polo bought a as an ex-hire from a VW main dealer in Dublin. Full service history etc. There was some engine noise so I brought it back in to be told that essentially the bottom half of the engine needs to be rebuilt (although by their own admission have not done any report or can give me same to confirm the position). My question is, do you know of any history of engine problems in 2015 or similar 1.0-litre Polo engines?

We know of an issue with the clutch assembly that causes what sounds like engine noise in the naturally aspirated 1.0-litre Polo engine. In the 1.0 TSI models, apparently a fault with the engine control unit (ECU) can cause whining from the engine as well. Neither of those sound like the problem you have, though.
