It is always a pleasure to offer for sale one of these superb VW Polo’s, this is the Mk3 or Typ 6N if you’re a VW aficionado and this one is even nicer than most we see because it has such a low mileage and an excellent service record including a note of the cambelt having been changed.

 

We’ve sold trillions (slight exaggeration) of these over the years, from when they were a few years old right up to the present days.  They remain massively popular because they are renowned for their longevity and reliability, along with ease of parts availability at sensible money – quite unusual for a German car.  They are very easy to maintain, cheap to run and insure and even with a 1.4 litre engine these cars are ideal as 1st cars. 

 

We would urge early viewing to avoid missing out on this car.  It won’t be here long.  Read on for full details.

 

Overview

 

The car has just two previous keepers, and since the last keeper and previous share the same surname and postal town we strongly suspect that it has been in just two families from new.  The car has a long MOT and a service history up to 71,500 miles, it is now showing just below 73,000 miles!  It is what we can therefore refer to as a full service history (detail further down)

 

As a result of being in private hands the car has been well looked after and drives superbly.  You do not often find one of these which has had such low ownership coupled to the service history which is with the car and especially not at this age and price point.

 

Finished in Chargall Blue the car looks very bright indeed.  As the pictures demonstrate the car is in above average condition with no nasty dents, scratches or bad boy adaptations having been inflicted on it.  The only sign of the age being picky is some light rust on the bottom of the driver’s door and some marks on the offside rear wing, but you know what, that is us being very picky and pointing out what you would expect on a car of this age and price, but we do so as we believe in giving as good an overview as we can.  There is certainly nothing that detracts from the overall appearance of the car. 

 

The central locking works perfectly and opens up to a very well presented and nicely preserved interior.  The grey cloth trim has no nasty rips, tears or staining, the dash is free of any modifications and on test everything works inside the car, further testimony to the care this car has received through its life. 

 

The car is nicely appointed, you enjoy Power Steering, Electric front windows, Electric mirrors, Height adjustable driver’s seat, Driver’s airbag, front and rear head restraints, split rear seat, SONY radio cassette and adjustable steering wheel to name but a few. 

 

On test the car drives very well indeed.  The 1.4 litre petrol engine is more than perky, it is very nippy and it is not an issue to stay with larger cars and yet you should expect high thirties to the gallon.  The gearbox is slick and tight, the clutch bites at the right point and the steering is direct and true.  There’s no untoward noises on test, the engine is clean, has no signs of leaks, all fluids are present, clear and correct and quite frankly we feel you will be surprised as to how much car you can get for such a low outlay. 

 

We absolutely insist that any potential purchaser drives the car, and you’ll be welcome to an accompanied test drive of approximately 6 miles across a range of roads. 

 

The car has a long MOT and is HPI clear.  The service history is here with the last stamp less than 2,000 miles ago and it is priced to sell.  .    

 

We sell cars all day and these Polo’s are always very desirable.  This one will not be here long.  Be quick if you want it.

Conclusion

 

This lovely car offers its next owner so much car for the money.  For under £1,000 you do not get this much car with such low mileage and the benefit of a full service history from many dealers, but that’s where we’re different.  We look to offer the best cars at the price point they are for sale at.  Remember this car has a long MOT, FULL service history, warrantied mileage, HPI and is under a grand.  What more do you want?

About us

 

Peter Shields T/A Shields Motor Company.   Based in Bracknell, Berkshire, RG12.  I have 20 years’ experience in the motor trade independently selling used cars.   I have a simple methodology, and that is to provide quality cars with a high level of service, at the most competitive of prices.     I’ve sold hundreds and hundreds of cars to hundreds of satisfied customers.  Retail cars are prepared to the highest of standards and our non-pressure approach will be a revelation.  Our cars sell themselves.

Previously Shields Motor Company was a Limited company with a forecourt and well-appointed offices.  We stocked dozens of cars, from a Fiesta to a top line Jaguar.  However, back in 2010 we decided to go back to our routes and to trade cars for passion, not just to pay the bills.  We operate from our home in Bracknell, Berkshire.  You will find our service akin to dealing with a quality forecourt, but without the pressure.   As a result you’ll find our prices sharp and our cars sell very quickly indeed.

PX and to clear vehicles are sold as seen, and no warranty is implied or given. 

Shields Motor Company ‘Quality Cars from the name you Can Trust’

You can contact me Peter on 07872 340360. 

We are based in Bracknell, RG12.  We operate from home and our cars are stored off site.  As a result all viewing by appointment to ensure we and the car are available for you.  Please don’t just turn up; the number of people who do so to find the car sold is really avoidable. 

We operate Sunday to Friday 9am-6pm by appointment.  We are closed on Saturdays.

 

Payment

 

Electronic transfer or cash payments only.   We do not accept debit or credit cards due to the admin fees levied by the bank. We will accept an electronic transfer, but the car will not be released until the funds are cleared. We do not accept personal cheques.

A £200.00 non-refundable deposit secures the car.  We do not sell cars sight unseen.
