An amazing car for the price, ahead of the pack
Nothing has gone wrong with the car, but that is expected, I bought it brand new.
This is a new Octavia RS 2.0 Turbo Diesel wagon with DSG.
When I first got it, the car was very tight, a bit stiff perhaps, but also a sign of good build quality.
After 5,000 kms, it has loosened up a bit and is much more comfortable to drive. My previous car was a very comfortable Honda Legend, so it took a bit of getting used to. It is much more comfortable now.
This car is seriously quick. It has incredible acceleration and holds the road like glue.
Fuel economy is fantastic now averaging around 5.8ltr/100kms. I drive over 100kms to work each day with a share of city and highway driving.
The cabin is very roomy and storage with the back seat down is pretty big.
The features are very good, and it is surprising how many features are available.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
