    So is this a reincarnation of the previous generation Cross Polo?

    Good luck trying to buy one. I spent 4 weeks trying to buy a Polo in Pretoria. 1st I tried using the web request function on the VW website. After 2 weeks of absolutely no reply I phend the Hatfield VW show room. I spoke to 4 different salesmen, each one more full of promises than the previous one. The last guy, the one with the most promises, one Johan Minaar pissed me off so badly that I drove to the Hatfield showroom. 8 sales staff sitting around, shooting the breeze , chatting, faking phone calls.. You know when nobody will make eye contact, to scared they will need to get off their lazy asses.... Well, I gave up, walked down the road and had my new car 3 days later.
