In that case I'd keep it . It's better to learn to drive in an old car with no electronical gimmicks that help keeping the car on the road (and if she hits something it's not a big problem )

what do you want to know?
this pic was taken with polarization filter , notice the lack in the reflection on the hood, as well as the lack of reflection in the front window.

UV filter is good for preserving colors; there are slightly more vivid, it's a minor effect. for pics inside they do reduce the incoming light so you'll need longer exposure time / smaller aperture; main reason to use UV filter is to have an extra protection (physically) for your lens.
Polarization filter is different from UV filter, it can remove reflection and allow you to take pictures through windows, through water, without the filter the reflective surfaces will not allow you to see inside; the major downside for INSIDE use it the noticeable darker pictures, so need for longer exposure/smaller aperture, much more noticeable than with UV filter. other downside is that a badly tweaked filter will screw up your photos, as with the example linked above, the hood of the car is only reflective on the outer left side, so it doesn't look very natural

Know the effect, but no experience, I was hoping for pictures with examples and maybe a (non-)"recommend" tag

Straight out of the cam, without POL-filter:



And now with filter:



Pleasing result, bought the filter in the US couple of weeks ago for 30$, don't know the actual price but for 30 dollar you can't be ripped off that much I guess
