I have been pretty much happy with the Polo in last 8 years. Mechanically it has not troubled me at all and Engine is performing great just like it was on day one. Apart from Engine, its interior & paint has held really really well and car doesn't look like 8 years old. I haven't used any compound till date either. Car has not faced any major accident but have had minor scratches and dents over the years.
