1998 Skoda Octavia GLX 1.9tdi
A cheap-to-run reliable family car
The shield underneath the motor broke in to pieces because of the low ground clearance.
Octavia is the perfect family car. The performances aren't too bad for a car of this weight. The front seats are very comfortable especially on long journeys.
In the back there is a lack of legroom. On the other-hand the boot is enormous.
Handling is good, but could be better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
