EVO Magazine issue 162 highlighted a problem with the engine on early 1.4 twincharged Polo GTIs.
The Polo 1.4TSI GTI apparently has high oil consumption as standard with VW saying it is normal for the car to use 1 litre of oil every 1243miles or 2000km.
“a batch of early twin-charged 1.4 TSIs have suffered from faulty piston rings, with a small handful of cars needing new engines” is what Stephen Dobie wrote.
So if you have a Polo GTI it is worth keeping an eye on the oil level and possibly the coolant level at the Polo EVO had on test had also used around 600ml of engine coolant.
