I am getting an engine sign in my polo. The color is in orange. I read the car manual and it shows fault in the catalytic converter.
So i went to the VW service station and checked it up. They said that the EGR has some problem and they will have to check it thoroughly. I asked how much would it cost. They said -

If its just the pipe damage, the pipe costs 8000/-
If the EGR is damaged fully then the whole unit will be replaced for 33000/- !

May i know if anybody has faced a similar problem and what should be done in this case? Thank you.

Spotted a Polo TSI parked at VW showroom at Prabhadevi, Mumbai as a new test drive car and it was a Silver one. Couldnt see the interiors as I was driving. May be they are launching the non-GT version of the Polo TSI

Quick silly question, how to toggle between the MID screens to see the instantaneous FE. Tired my best on the trendline but couldn't figure it out.

Hi Ethan 3686, any update on the status of your car? Your update might enlighten a few of us here. Thanks

Hi, the rear wiper keeps on swiping intermittently (i.e. once every 4-5 seconds) whenever the car is on. fiddled with the right hand stalk, but to no avail?
What am I missing?

Looks like you have flicked the right stalk towards the front (i.e. the cluster side). The rear wiper turns on and works intermittently. Flick it back towards the rear and it should turn off.

hi Gannu_1, thanks for your reply..

Now that you are online, I'll throw another question at you. The key is really hard to crank at times when I rotate it from intermediate to crank position.. is this a simply lubing problem?

I asked the same thing during my recent test drive of the polo and was told not to start the vehicle from the intermediate position. He asked me to completely switch off the ignition and crank the engine in one go without halting at the intermediate position.

If this happens when the engine shuts off unexpectedly, then like Hells_Fury mentioned, you will have to switch off the ignition by turning the key counter-clockwise and then turn everything on.

This is something new for users who are switching from Hyundai, Maruti and such cars wherein you can start the engine without touching the key. IINM the Fiat cars also have this feature (or quirk!).

I had this problem and ended up spending 8k-ish. Did a bit of digging out at that time and came out with an impression that the EGR system in the Indian spec Polo is of older design compared to that in European spec one and is somewhat less reliable. Regardless, the EGR system sits in a very hostile thermal environment and is considered to be failure prone as such.

The GT TDI variant of the facelifted VW Polo has been spotted on the Pune-Satara highway. The car is powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine that makes 104 bhp and is rumoured to be coupled to a DSG transmission.

No! My worst fears confirmed! What is wrong with VW. So many iterations of the Polo & Vento. Whichever car I buy ends up being refreshed! The Jetta- refreshed in less than a year, same thing with the Vento. I have made up my mind never to buy a VW again. If it comes with DSG, I will sell both of them.
