Great car for Europe, needs work for Colombia


The gears are not properly made for mountains.

There are some noises inside the cabin.

The rear brakes tends to make some noises when they are cold.

General Comments:

Although the Fabia is a great car, it could be better. There are some problems of adjustment inside the car, the Colombian ground is not quite uniform and the suspension tends to suffer causing a lot of noise inside the car.

Also because the inclination of the streets in Bogota, the probability of causing a traffic problem is very high, you never know when because a lack of power in lower revolutions, the Fabia is gonna turn off.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
