I recently bought a POLO TSI 1.2 HIGHLINE and after driving for 2 days with 520k on the clock, moving off from parking at garage it started smelling and later produced smoke from the bonnet so I towed it back to the dealer and 3 days later they tell me that the clutch has burnt and it must have been how I drove the car. Can this happen at this stage? The car is new and this was the first time I had this smell and I am very careful about how I drive. Has anyone heard of a case like this before? What can I do?

I have a polo 1.9 SDI, I had the timing belt and water pump changed in February of this year. Since having this replaced, every morning as soon as I start it up the temperature light comes on, as soon as I drive up the road and turn the engine off and back on again the temperature light goes off and doesn't come on again for the rest of the day. It happens once a day when I turn the engine on. Please help.

I have a Polo 1.6 TDI 2014. Do you start and go or warm it up when it`s stayed overnight? If you have to warm it up, how many minutes does it have to idle? If you took a long trip, when you reach your destination do you have to let it idle before you can switch it off?

Happens to me all the time, been told it's either a faulty fuse which seems to bring those three on or a minor fault with the exhaust. Mine always seem to come on, normally when my foot isn't on either the brake or accelerator. Had mine looked at loads and garages can never find a fault. Weird innit ! Jay from Merseyside
