As a European car brand, maintenance costs on the Volkswagen Polo are higher than average. This is because the parts are produced and imported from offshore, and in some instances, built to a higher standard with more expensive components. Despite the impeccable reliability of the Polo, you will run into problems from time to time as you would with any other car. Recently, Volkswagen Australia introduced a new fixed-price servicing program for cars between four and 15 years old, with prices ranging between $578-$638 for a two-year plan, and between $1021-$1125 for a four-year plan, based on the model and year of the car. For new models, VW's fixed priced service costs between $1800-$2500 for a five-year plan, or between $990-$1500 for a three-year plan.
