Summary:

Great car for Europe, needs work for Colombia

Faults:

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
