Polo Liftback(2020) after one month and 1,500 km
This is not the first car of the Wag family in our family. Not even the first polo:) now there is even a 2013 polo sedan in the maximum configuration on a manual transmission. So most of the description of the new car will go in comparison with it. Since the date of purchase has passed a month and I drove it 1500 km. The first thing I want to say about the car is that it has caused me a cognitive dissonance. It was the first time in 15 years of driving. In that time, I have driven (driven over 2,000k miles in each of the cars accounted for here) as a driver in more than 30 cars of different price classes. The spread in class goes from a 2006 VAZ 2107 to a 2018 Volvo XC90. And no other car has ever given me such a sense of dissonance. “I was very wrong” will be the main phrase of my narrative:) Next I will try to explain and list the reasons why I had this feeling: 1) The lack of window closers on all doors in the maximum configuration of the car when the 2013 and 2019 car has them. I figured it couldn’t be that this one wouldn’t have what it used to have. I was very wrong Vag can have it… 2) no “mute” button in the max package, although it is in the cheaper packages. I thought that can not be on this will not be what is in the cheaper. I was very wrong:) Vag can be. 3) The electronic dashboard is not functional at all. In fact replaced the analog speedometer and tachometer with a picture on the screen and that’s it. I agree my mistake (at the time of ordering a car like this bundle had not yet gone on sale and ordering made in advance), I had to study the issue better, but I thought that once the dashboard as in Tiguan and it will work with the same capabilities. I was very wrong:) 4) At the showroom, I was given a set of winter tires. I thought the Polo should be a people’s car and it should be a large selection of rims. I was very wrong:) R16 rims, dimension 5×100, offset 38, planting diameter 57.1, on sale in our country. To order only 2 types. In general, the choice is not at all. So you understand I live in the Republic of Tatarstan, in a town with a population of 240 thousand people, 40 km from my house is another city with a population of 530 thousand people, and in 60 and 80 km there are settlements with a population of 15 and 80 thousand people. I think this area would be hard to call a hick town:) 5) My package is present as the booklet says “light sensor, rain sensor and self-dimming mirror. Only there is a feeling that the rain sensor or I forgot to put or it does not work. The operation of the wipers is absolutely the same as in the 2013 car, where there was no rain sensor. No change in the operation of the wipers when changing the rain intensity … And the mirror after tinting the first day of ownership of the car stopped auto-darkening. I don’t understand if I have it autodimming or not?) In the near future will go to TO-0 and this issue will be clarified. 6) Keyless entry system. Complete crap… works only on the front doors. Step away from the car, the car will not close. You need to put your finger to the sensor on the front handle to close, and it does not always work the first time. I use the car 90% of the time I go to the back door first to put a baby in or put things in the back seats. When exiting the car I go to the back door to get the baby or things. As a result, I started using the key to lock and unlock the car again.
I repent. Here, of course, is purely my subjective feelings from the habit of normal in my opinion keyless access systems in cars of a higher class. I think after replacing the alarm system can get rid of this inconvenience. Already had to put it 3 weeks ago, but the installation was delayed due to illness installer (if you believe the manufacturer’s website, he is one certified in our city). 7) Continuation of the theme with the door closers and stacks of the car. On the previous generation of Polik closed the windows when arming. If the car had any lights on in the cabin, the car beeped so that in the morning would not find the car with a dead battery. There were sensors of motion or volume (I do not know what it is exactly, but there were several times that the car was shouting the siren until it drove large striped flies out of the cabin). Thought that there should be all of this too. I was very wrong None of the above. Tire pressure monitoring system. Always thought that this requires sensors in the wheels. Turns out they are not. While I seriously doubt that this is not just another advertising bullshit … But in defense of this crap, I will say that once after a cold snap I had a warning about the fixation of lowering the pressure in tires. Checked the pressure gauge on the pump, it showed 2 atm. How much was there before I do not know (pumped at the tire fitting when assembling winter tires). Pumped up to the value, removed the error. Will see what happens next, but the scale starts to swing. May change my mind about it… 9) When changing tires for winter I noticed a strange thing with the hub caps closure. No hub caps on the front, but the rear do. Okay the previous one had drum brakes on the beam, but there are disc brakes everywhere. Shouldn’t it be either everywhere or nowhere?:) Why such asymmetry?
