1999 Skoda Octavia LX 1.9 SDI diesel from UK and Ireland
The best car I have ever owned, and it's a Skoda!!!
No severe problems at all.
Just one little thing, just a worn constant velocity joint, but even this was very cheap to replace.
Starter motor squeal every once in a while, but was checked and not a problem to worry about.
256,180 miles, and she still goes on without fault!!
This is the first Skoda I've ever owned, and I'm completely won over by it. It has a huge boot for a hatchback, very comfortable and economical. Even though it's been to the moon and back, she still drives extremely well. It only has 68 bhp, but it's more than enough. The engine is bulletproof, thanks to it a being a tried and tested VW engine.
It's in excellent condition inside, considering it was a private hire car, but you wouldn't think it.
It handles beautiful, the most stable car I've ever owned.
I bought it last August, and I intend to keep it for many years to come!!!
If you want a thoroughly reliable and roomy car, than this is the car for you, I would certainly have another!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
