    I have a polo, driving on the motorway the other day with sun straight on my eyes , I tried to pull the sun visor down, it jammed, I pulled it harder, it snapped. My dealer doesn't want to know and VW customer service are waste of time.They sound like school kids answering the phone. They have no power over the dealers and they can't compensate the dealer for repairing the sun visor. So what are they for?
