Parked up by the previous owner for two years due to electrical problems.
Ventilation kept coming and going, clocks kept coming and going, doors kept locking and unlocking themselves, burned 3 litres of oil in 1000 miles.
Car test emissions were through the roof - which the tester said is common with 1.6 petrol Skoda's. Not worth fixing and sold for scrap. Had a newer one that was only 4 years old, and had the same problem with clocks. Don't know if I was unlucky or what, but I will never buy another Skoda.
Handles itself nicely on the open road.
Didn't get more than a few weeks hassle free driving out of either Skoda I owned. I will never buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
