Great car for the value


The main problem on this car is the head gasket, it is result of the bad thermostat. Otherwise minor interior plastic parts.

General Comments:

Extremely cheap car here. Cost new was 9000DM. Great car for the money.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The problem with the head gasket is not resulting from a bad thermostat only, it is also resulting from bad cooling liquid added at the factory. After exchanging the head gasket and cooling liquid, the problem is solved.

Other problems that my Skoda has are the dashboard is too noisy because it don't have strong material and rust is coming out at the bottom corner of the front doors, and the speedometer is not working because it had the cable cut.
