Skoda Fabia Estate 1.9 TDI Elegance 5d (AC) (2001/Y) - Owner Review

Really good driver's car. Slight quibble on visibility. Front pillars very thick and difficult to judge where the front corners are till you get used to it.

Skoda Fabia Estate (01-07)

Value

5 out of 5

This is a car for the money-conscious, not the image-conscious.

Costs

5 out of 5

57 mpg averaged over a year's ownership. No breakdowns or other problems. Cheap to service.

Driving

4 out of 5

Really good driver's car. Slight quibble on visibility. Front pillars very thick and difficult to judge where the front corners are till you get used to it.

Performance

4 out of 5

Tons of low-down power. Takes sportier cars by surprise, especially up hills.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Faultless so far
