I have a 2002-2005 MK4 POLO 1.9SDI.

not sure if this should be here but ive bought the car in 2015 at 56k and yesterday hit 80k. posting stuff i can remember if it helps it helps.

Changed the heater blower switch or something like that as settings 2,4 didnt work.

Changed steering rack due to a leak.

Alternator packed in at 66K. (original and not really sure lifespan)

That F***ing dash crackles when driving. turning the music up works.

replaced cup holder twice as it sucks and fails.

Left speaker stopped working at 76K.

Replaced rear shocks 4 times(welcome to london)

Every bush been replaced at some point.

guessing most of these are not really known faults but its what ive noticed.

always serviced it fully yearly. been france and back 3 times. original clutch still and same battery 3.5 years.

I have the 2018 gti plus and have had a new hand brake cable - local garage advised it’s common on this model.

I’ve had my rear brakes squealing and creaking in reverse, the garage has stripped, cleaned and bedded in, had the car back was worse... back in stripped back down again cleaned. They still squeal a little tiny bit but no where near as bad as it did.

Now I need a new turbo actuator :roll: :shock:
