    Grade is not the first thing you want to look at , very first thing is approval , VW petrol engines require VW504.00 oil approval for petrol and VW505.01 for diesel and even some diesel engines require VW507.00 for approval specifically and oil grade is secondary , grade is decided upon the minimum and maximum ambient temperature you can encounter in your region, for indian climate 5w40 seems to be the best ( 5) will help you to to keep the engine lubricated and let the oil flow even upto the temperature of -10°C and (40) is good till 45°C of ambient temperature , which we encounter in peak summers easily

  • Engine complaints

    My car is a 2016 polo TDI 1.5l. Good car with great mileage and ride quality. I am using this car for the past 6 years. 80k+ kms on the odometer. The driving dynamics are great for the segment. If the car is focusing only on front passengers, it's well, But for the back seat, it is bit tight. The car never got any engine complaints still, But the spare cost is on the higher side. Even an abs sensor can cost 5.3k including a service charge. After 6 years, there is no single jerking inside the car, Mostly other car parts on the cabin will make some rattling sound. My TDI will beast on the highway, Cruise mostly around100-120 kmh. Pros: best control on road, driving pleasure, stable on high speeds, trustable engine. Cons: back seat space, Abs sensor failures(5 times I changed, 4 covered on warranty, Last 1 changed after warranty- cost is 5.3k ), Spare cost is more than normal cars. Service cost is on the higher side. Features are less in the cabin.

    Perfect balance

    While going to test drive the Polo. I knew that it was a 10-year-old 'new' car, But I still feel it is a strong contender, Which is often overlooked. To explain further, here are the positives & negatives of the polo TSI. Positive: 1. Safety had scored 4 stars in GNCAP with a good score for structural integrity. 2. Great handling that the polo is a driver's car is a statement beaten to death, but that is a fact. It turns in beautifully and feels chuckable with great confidence. The steering is sharp & direct, adding to the confidence. 3. Great ride its stability and comfort at high speeds on open roads are quite well known. It feels stiffer on poor roads and bumps at lower speeds but is not uncomfortable. While some may call it stiff, I call it the perfect balance, as the car settles down on such poor road surface and hence is less tiring and doesn't make passengers feel nauseated as a softer wallowing suspension would. 4. The engine is a gem and pulls very strongly and the manual is a great gearbox with decent shift quality. It has a great drive train. 5. Cruise control makes drives less of a hassle. 6. Factory fitted tinted glasses are a boon in our hot country. 7. Good audio and sound insulation for external noise. 8. Timeless exterior and interior and great build quality. 9. Good boot space. Negatives: 1. Rear seat legroom is less as compared to rivals. However a major caveat, I feel the seats are more comfortable with better under-thigh support. So one may actually be more comfortable here than its rival's rear seats. This can be perceived only after long journeys. So the lack of space should not be a concern if everyone in your family is less than or equal to 5'11'' or you are the only one above 6'2. Low ground clearance, especially the lower end of the front bumper. Which can strike ramps and speed breakers. 3. No Isofix mounts for child seats. It's something very important for a family. This is missing for quite a bummer. 4. Volkswagen service is perceived to be expensive and less consistent as compared to rivals. This may only be true for service outside the warranty period. In the end, Polo TSI still trumps its rivals in many areas, which are the very basics of what makes a good car. It may below on features and a sense of space in the rear, but I feel all those will be quickly forgotten once somebody owns an ad that drives this beauty and takes his family for those long drives.
