1994 Skoda Favorit LXi plus 1.3i from UK and Ireland
A 180mph express? No, but it sat at 80mph all day
The car had a tendency to overheat, but it just kept on going. There was a slight leak in the coolant pipe - just kept it topped up. The engines have a reputation for head gasket failures, but both ours were OK.
For some reason I was really comfy in it. I drove Milan - Lincoln in one go, no worries, and up and down the ski resort roads in the winter no problem. My wife and I owned 2 examples, it was a cheap runabout and massive inside. Dealers are unbelievably friendly. All in all, a good thing.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
