I bought my son his first car - a 2010 1.2 60hp Polo S and it looks like I've bought a lemon! I did all the basic checks apart from the exhaust on start up. Long story short, after 300 miles he's burnt all the oil, which suggests piston rings rather than valve seals. I now need to get him a replacement / reconditioned engine. Hate using engine brokers or ebay as you just don't know what you're buying! I was thinking if getting his re-built, but it could be that the bores are worn which would mean I've wasted money on a strip down. Anyone off any advice on somewhere honest / reliable to get one?
