I have recently bought my first Skoda, it's a Fabia 1.4IPM 2002 petrol.
I thought seeing as this is the first time I have a few bob to spend on a car, I would go, after much consideration, to a Skoda dealer.
On the test drive I noticed that when the car was ticking over at traffic lights; the tickover was very erratic and very jumpy. On asking why this was, the salesman assured me it was the roll bar and would be attended to.
After buying the car, the problem still persists; this is after taking it back three times. On the third occasion, the head mechanic tells me that now he realizes it is an eight valve and, all the eight valves have the same characteristic, 'well', I'm not convinced, but, having said all that, I like the car and if anybody could assure me that these guys are telling the truth, I would be highly delighted and grateful.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
