Good option for a small car

General Comments:

Very good car for its price, quality looks fine, definitely better than the Felicia, 20 cm longer, more comfortable, lots of equipement. If anyone wants to buy a Skoda, think about this car. Interior design is like the Octavia, 2000.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Checking out Skoda's web site, the list prices don't seem very attractive. There are, I think, on a par with Seat prices, which incidentally have better equipment, and normally better residual values.

Skoda Fabia.

Loosing coolant from the early days.

Temperature gauge alarm always coming on. The car has been back to the dealer 20 times, but they haven't got a clue what to do.

I read last week that Skoda have the best build quality of the entire VW group!

Who`s laughing now?

It is really a nice car for its price. In the begining I was hesitant between it & the new shaped polo but finally I made up my mind for the Fabia. It is nice looking car & reliable for the Egyptian Roads. For its category I could say it is luxurious.
