2017 Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 150bhp from UK and Ireland

Summary:

Boring, dull, horrid car

Faults:

The gear change from 2nd to 3rd is awkward; cannot find 3rd gear sometimes.

Regularly cuts out even though you have stop start turned off; you have to start it manually.

The comfort is pretty dire.

The seats are black cloth stain and very easily.

When you open and close sunroof, the warning light comes on the dash.

General Comments:

Great tow car.

MPG over 50.

A very boring lump of a car.

Having the different driving modes does not make any difference in driving economy.

Some other drivers mistake the car for a unmarked police car, and that is the only highlight on this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I'd get the gear change and the cutting out looked at while it's still under warranty. Unacceptable on a 2017 car. Myself I have a 2003 Octavia used as a taxi, and it is a dull but very reliable car with no major problems.
