Fantastic small car (Dreadful dealer)
Front Fog Lights not working.
Very poor dealer service.
I covered 55,000 miles in a Seat Arosa powered by the same 1.4 3-cylinder TDI engine and praised that car for it's excellent performance, economy and reliability. I see no reason why the Fabia should be any different.
In addition to the benefits of the Seat I now also enjoy space, comfort and excellent refinement. I also feel that the Fabia is the best looking small car currently available, but I suppose that's personal taste.
My car is currently delivering around 55mpg which is around the same as the Seat. This figure is probably no better than that achieved by the 1.9TDI Fabia, but the engine is such a joy to use and listen to that it doesn't matter to me.
My dealer is worse than useless, but I see that this forum will not accept comments on this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
