Is the 2006 Volkswagen Polo a reliable car?

Is the 2006 Volkswagen Polo a reliable car? I'm used to an 03 Golf, which was excellent; I need a reliable car on a tight budget.

Hi Catherine,

In general, yes, the 2006 Polo is quite reliable. However, you have to adjust your expectations given that it would be over 14 years old now. Go for as simple a model as you can find and best to go for petrol rather than diesel to keep the maintenance costs low.
