2000 Skoda Octavia SLX 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Car broke down with smoke and fuel billowing out of the exhaust. They changed the main circuit board and the car was on the road again.
Boot lock stopped working.
I wound down the passenger window one morning and it wouldn't go back up.
The car will cut out almost every cold morning before it warms. My local garage have looked at it 3 time now and have not been able to fix the problem. They told me yesterday that they can't fix it so I'm writing this review.
Coolant leaked - part cost £14 but job cost £450 by the time they replaced my cam belt to get at the coolant pump where the leak was.
I had a Honda before and it was excellent and never any trouble. I bought the Skoda because I heard it was reliable, but I was very disappointed. The car has been well looked after and serviced regularly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
