General Comments:

I got the car when it was brand new and I am very happy with the dealer that I purchase the car from. I have owed the car for a year and a half now and I have driven this car through 12 European countries. I do a lot of long distance driving and I find that.

The front seats are very comfortable.

The back sits are not comfortable for long traveling.

The engine of the car is quite noisy after 120km/h, but at least it keeps you awake.

You can feel every bump on the road, which can be a problem when traveling in some East European countries.

The car has a great performance for its engine.

The car is just superb on snow! I haven't got stuck on places where most other cars do get stuck.

The most amazing thing that I found about this car is that on -18 degrees Celsius in a deep snow last winter in Bulgaria I test the car to see how long it will take to worm up. It took less than 5 minutes where as my father's 2002 Skoda Oktavia in the same time it took him a little over 16 minutes.

I am really happy of this car and I think it's a real value for money. I got 3 year warranty or 120,000km.

This car is great for extreme cold weather, but not so good on very hot weather. I think the air-conditioning is not cold enough, but that's my own opinion as I like cold very much!!!

The car is very economical and my average fuel consumption is 6-7liter/100km on motorways with speed of around 130km/h, 5,5-6/100km with speed of around 90km/h.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
