1998 Skoda Octavia GLXi 1.6
Do ever think of BUYING one here!
Well very excited when I collect the car, but after 1 year when the warranty almost over the noisy breaking sound start to come. Then the front window holder gave way just after few months the window just drop down. Got it replace from another car in the workshop. Than when I went for overseas attachment, my wife told me the dealer closed shop, with the breaking noise unsolved. By then almost all four doors had the part replaced, after unexpected "droppings". Found that all Volks car had the same problem about 2 yrs need to replace this part informed an old friend I bumped into at the Volks specialist workshop. Maybe these continental cars not meant for our hot tropical weather. The front break noise reduced after I sent this car to this Volks specialist workshop much cheaper and reliable service. After that I gave up this car, sold to one and only 2nd hand skoda dealer.
I finnaly switched to a ever reliable Japanese car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
