Will only be surpassed by the New Octavia due out in July 2004..
Boot lock warning light comes on even when boot is locked. Fixed twice under warranty. Is going back shortly for a THIRD time!
This is the Estate version of the car.
The Boot/Luggage Area is massive, there is nothing I have bought that wouldn't go in. Including a double bed.
This is the best car I have ever had for fuel consumption, on my regular 18 mile commute to work (A and M Roads) I always get at least 50mpg. On longer all Motorway driving it averages well into the 60's.
With height adjustable seats, rake adjustable steering and climate control you can't fail to get comfortable, even on the longest of drives (though this is no excuse not to take a rest once in a while)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
