Summary:

Good and reliable, hard to let go

Faults:

Electronic module was an open design; rain and washing destroyed it, new one is closed.

The aspirator was replaced several times because a mechanic overtightened it. Since the last change it's been OK.

Secondary fuel filter needs replacement or cleaning regularly.

General Comments:

Good style.

Reliable on the road.

Big space; I used it to take the ceramics for the floor of my home, moved my home several times in it.

It is not a fast car on the road (it is heavy).

Summary:

A reliable car

Faults:

Nothing major, replacements are made according to usage.

Headlamps started to fade.

General Comments:

Well a 1.3 petrol engine for this car is not that good, maximum speed I was able to get was 180/km. Nowadays the maximum I can get is 160/km and acceleration is excellent for a 1.3 engine although the car is heavy. Handling is excellent and the car is very stable. Fuel consumption is fairly okay and servicing here in Egypt is terrific. Basically if you service the car regularly and by an authorized dealer, you won’t find any trouble using a Felecia. In-fact I purchased an octavia and I will receive it in the upcoming days!.

Summary:

Perfect and worth every dollar you spent in it

Faults:

Nothing at all (till now), except some rust under the battery & I fixed it.

General Comments:

It is a wonderful car, I liked it a lot.

After I bought it & used it I found it perfect in every thing except for the acceleration it's a bit slow, but I can deal with that.

I can't tell you how pleasuring & comfortable it is on the high ways.

When I'm driving it I feel that I'm in another world & I don't feel whats going out side My World.

However the cabin is very gloomy and the seats are uncomfortable.

It handles like it's on rails.

Specially I have a Combi, it have a lot, I mean A lot of space that I could take my whole house is it while I'm traveling.

Since I bought it I realized that Skoda is a very reliable & respectable company, so I started thinking seriously to own the New Octavia.
