Selling our polo diesel, 5 door.
€4000 or offers.
Owned by us since 2008.
It has been a superb vehicule but age is catching up and its a bit difficult getting into and out.
Ideal second car.
1ST REG 06,06 2006
Nearing 200,000 k.
But good service record

Any chance of a photo? We'll be looking for a first car for our daughter soon, although with the price of diesel we might actually end up with something petrol! But VW was top of the list of choices!

Vg choice but as said now with age and my leg its getting into and out so we have gone for a citreon c4, much higher.

Tidy!

A couple of questions,

What size is the engine?
I think I see an Air Con. button? That's a must have!
Also, for the stereo, is there an audio jack?

As I said, the passenger, the only passengers I normally have these days. :lol:

Obviously, I make sure the dogs don't have the plugs in when they are driving. :- M.Hollande wouldn't like that. :|

As lovely as it is, lack of funds means a car for daughter is going on the back burner. Might be cheaper to get her insured on the van!

Papi, there is a good facebook buy and sell site that might be good for your car and tractor. I can PM you the link if you're interested.

Many thanks each, i have used bon coin before just thought i'd post it here first, i have a couple a bit interested in the polo, its a case of wait and see.
Our local family garage would put it on show as well for a small commission.
Picked up this afternoon the citreon, think its going yo take a month to understand the working of the pc operating system.
For those not in the know at Bergerac and Perigeaux there is a large enterprise (JSD Automobiles) which specialises in new and recent cars at low prices, most imported from Spain or Germany, a good reputation and price.
After much web research i found them 5 to 6 mil, below garages and consessionares in the Dordogne, Lot and Lot/Garronne.

Ha ha, I know the feeling. We bought a Golf after selling the Passat. Our other car is about 14 or 15 years old so we too are having to learn how a modern car works !
