1998 Skoda Felicia LX 1.6 from Sweden
Get something else
A lot of rust!
Leaking water through the rear hatch.
Rear breaking cylinders replaced.
Left driveshaft replaced.
Reminds me a lot of my old Opel kadett -88 (Vauxhall Astra). A tin can with four wheels (I liked the kadett better). A very basic car without any extras. The over all quality seems to be somewhat questionable, to put it mildly.
Mine has started to rust just about everywhere, even though both me and the previous owner (a friend) has washed it regularly. It is also quite noisy.
On the positive side it has been very reliable with excellent heating during the Swedish winter. It also handles snowy/icy roads pretty well.
This is good since I wouldn't want to be caught in an accident in this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
