Summary:

Hot performance affordable diesel!

Faults:

So far, after nearly 10,000 k, I have had no faults.

General Comments:

The Vrs Fabia is an exciting performance diesel. I have driven it across Europe and I was amazed at its acceleration, brakes, steering and road holding. Getting past traffic is a breeze and click on the cruise control you can run down the Autobahn at 170k all day. The frugal fuel consumption (about 100k to 4.5l on motorways) puts the smile back when in the UK.

I am seriously pleased with this great little car!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
