2003 Skoda Fabia TDI 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Heap of scrap
New wheel bearings x2.
High level brake light.
ABS wiring problem (in dealer for a week).
What a pile of junk, VW build quality!!! I have had 8 proper VW's & they were brilliant; then I buy this heap!
To add to the list above the bushes on the front suspension, which is a known weak point. They are on their way out, but at least I can replace those with powerflex items & they should last for a while.
I am stuck with this as I am not in a position to buy another car, but once I am it won't be another Skoda. Don't believe all the hype; Skoda are no more than an average car maker at best.
Run a mile if you're offered one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
