The Problem

2011 Polo owned from new, petrol, local commuting only. On way home warning lights started - the wheel alignment/traction (?) (Yellow) and Catalytic Converter (Yellow) came on together. I thought Id get home so kept going about ten miles. In last two mile EPC (Yellow) came on and the power was severely limited to the acceleration - it was chugging. I turned off the engine and turned it back on. the EPC remained off but the other two came on. The power was back though so I made it home but just before i got home the EPC came on again and limited the power again. Any ideas?

Get it scanned for stored fault codes,
It's useless to speculate until then.
