My Polo TSI: One year & 15000 km update post a major accident

I try to slow down well in advance so the car behind me slows down as well. This only happens when I drive the Polo.

BHPian sinharishi recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

A short update on the car after 1 year from the accident:

  • Car was repaired and delivered in December. Polo spent nearly 2 months in the workshop at Jaipur VW. I am more than happy with the work done on the car. What’s surprising is there are no rattles till date!
  • Car has clocked 15,000 kms post accident. The only issue to report is the paint mismatch on the rear left door.
  • She is serving us well. I have added/changed quite a few things on the car – tyres, lights, engine guard. She will be getting new brakes tomorrow.
  • The after effect of the accident stays with me, I am always wary of the traffic behind me. When I come to a stop, I always first check my IRVMs. I try to slow down well in advance so the car behind me slows down as well. This only happens when I drive the Polo. I am more focused on the traffic behind me than ahead. Hope to overcome this someday.
