Replaced head gasket after 60k. Central locking unit failed at 40k. In every other way a very reliable car.

General Comments:

Fantastic value for money! Fairly comfy, a bit harsh engine though. Handles fairly on straight forward, understeers heavily when pushed in bends, but remains safe. I have traded it for a Ford Scorpio estate, it became a bit too small for a family of four and a big dog.

Buy one and discover the Skoda difference!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
