Summary:

Great value for your bucks

Faults:

At 60000 km the water got into the engine, needed a motor head replacment.

Except this, I am amazed the car is rather reliable and the spare parts are very cheap (as well as the car itself).

Some noise from the brakes after heating, e.g. in traffic jams.

General Comments:

Great value for the money, I am really happy with this car although the engine is rather weak (especially with the A/C on).

I got electric windows and central locking installed so it's even comfortable.

I am sure my next car will be a Fabia or Felicia.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
