2015 Skoda Octavia vRS 4x4 DSG Hatchback 2.0L turbo diesel

Summary:

Great car

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Does like the coolant.

Engine fan comes on a lot.

DSG can be hesitant.

The big wheels do tend to make ride comfort rather annoying; dodging manholes covers on the road is a hobby now.

In Sport mode with paddle shift you will get 38 MPG.

In Eco mode with paddle shift you will get 49 MPG.

Comfortable seats.

VW Golf GTI drivers envy you because it's diesel 4 wheel drive.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Get that coolant appetite checked out, while it's under warranty. Could be a minor leak, but in a very labour-intensive place like the heater core behind the dashboard, or despite being a reasonably new car, a dodgy head gasket.
