Default 2002 VW Polo Exhaust Emissions Warning Light

About 12 months ago my exhaust emissions warning light came on, i consulted the manual which of course says to take the car into the local VW dealership without delay. I recently had some problems with my local VW dealers, not to mention the costs, so i hesitated. After a fortnight or so the light went off.



About 2 weeks ago, it came back on for a few days, went off for a day and came back on again!



When i put this into a search engine on the net, i came up with loads of forum threads, referring to this "well know problem" one that has VW owners and mechanics across the country baffled.



I know i shall have to face a garage soon, but being a woman in my twenties and knowing nothing of cars, im concerned i may get conned! So if anyone has any ideas what the problem could be, if you've encountered this problem, how much it may cost??? In fact any info is greatly appreciated.



Cheers!

as bad as this may sound, can you have a male friend take the car in with you?

This is an option of course, however id still be interested to hear any more info on this as my main thoughts are around potential costs and the possible severity of the problem?
