1994 Skoda Forman LX 1.3 petrol
Very good family car with a huge luggage space
Rear end of silencer changed after six years.
Great buy. Cheap motoring, good build quality and good performance for an estate. Loads of space. Tended to understeer but a change to wider tyres solved the problem. One of the first models to benefit from the VW merger.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

My Skoda Forman has problems with rust after six years.
I have replace the Stoßdämper (I don't know the right word in English) now.
This may depend on the build year. The first Formans were known for their tendency to rust. The best model to buy is the '93 or '94 Forman, with the 50 kW engine if available. Really good value for money, can transport a lot of stuff, great for families.
My 1993 Forman LSe (last original Czech Model) went 153'000 km yet. It is a great car for young families because it is very cheap in buying and maintenance. Some problems appeared only on the water-cooling. After 9 years some rust on left-side behind. No other problems. Runs 150 km p.h. on highway with four persons and plenty of luggage. We go to holiday in Italy every year (800 km).
Who can help me?I need SKODA Forman user manual! thanks.
I would like to buy a Skoda Forman. I am in the UK. Does anyone have one to sell?

My Skoda Forman is wonderful. It is really reliable, it performed well at Hal - Far drag strip. Only had to change the silencer after 14 years. Great Value for money.
I have mine for many years now. It's a bit old fashioned, so I thought about seven years ago that I should buy a newer model if this old one gives me any trouble.
Guess, since that it gave me no trouble at all, it's a survivor.
