2000 Skoda Octavia GLXi 1.6 gasoline
Rear window clip broke down, so the window could not go back up - I fixed it myself, and it's been working perfect for 5 years already.
Ceiling upholstery fell down (after 10 years!!!)
Air conditioning foam sealant flows from the vents.
A/T is slipping sometimes, and sometimes a knock is felt between the gears.
All the car is original!!! Nothing has changed yet.
Very reliable and solid car, very comfortable.
Low fuel consumption; 8.2L/100km average - the car weighs 1400 kilos empty.
VERY big trunk - 550 liters.
Actually a Volkswagen, but much better, and much more reliable, comfortable and cheaper.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have a Skoda Octavia -00. I was wondering about the fuel consumption? My Octavia (combi-model) consumes only 6,5-7,0 city/highway driving, with no load. How can you make it up to 8,5 liters? Automatic car?... I drive a manual shift model.
The 10 years I've owned it, have been just great! NO PROBLEMS AT ALL! The service book is full, all service done. It's a reliable friend of mine, I will not change this car until she's finished for good.. my best friend (just bought new seat covers to cheer her up a bit.) There's no rust to be found either. Car inspection... clean papers every year! I live in Sweden.. so we have summer, winter, spring and autumn.. all weather types.. and she's just movin' on.
