Skoda Fabia Estate (01-07)

Value

5 out of 5

If you can get over the badge, it's loads cheaper than a Polo, with a better spec.

Costs

4 out of 5

Insurance is reasonable, but 1.4 8-valve engine has only average MPG (about 43 combined).

Driving

4 out of 5

No problems, but not as involving as some. Chassis is very good.

Performance

3 out of 5

The 1.4 engine is perfectly adequate, but buy the 16 valve unit if you need acceleration.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Superb - no problems yet and not expecting any either.

5 out of 5

Yes it's a Skoda, but it looks like a VW and better than the new goggle-eyed Polo in my opinion!

Comfort

5 out of 5

Seats are very supportive and cabin materials are of a high standard. The engine is really quiet.

Security

4 out of 5

Seems fairly secure. Standard immobiliser.

Service

2 out of 5

Although the dealer was helpful, the car took two months longer than it should to be delivered (not just my car). Skoda need to sort out their delivery system.
