2009 Skoda Octavia Greenline 1.6 TDI 105cv


Can't get better out of your money


The door panels started to lose some color, but nothing noticeable. Maybe the Elegance pack would solve this?

General Comments:

For city traveling, it is not fantastic. First gear is very short, and the second does not quite match the end of the first one. (In first, it is very easy to stall the engine from stationary, and in second, it is very easy to stall the engine at low speeds). It should had been fitted with a 1.5 gear to go from first to second.

Apart from this issue, it is a fantastic car, very good on the motorways, low fuel consumption, good looking car, reliable (as it is a VW), with a big boot.

I think it is missing a cruise control option, a big failure.

It is a VW Passat with Skoda badge. Excellent value for money. If you're looking for 4 door family car, reasonably priced, this is the one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
