Skoda Fabia Estate (01-07)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Fairly mainstream, buys for practicality and low running costs over style and speed,.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
All think its pretty good, most are surprised by level of spec especially the rear parking sensors, people , myself included find it strange that it doesn't have rear electric windows but has a lot of other stuff.

Would you buy this car again and why?
As much as a good car this is I probably wouldn't buy it again, getting a bit old now.

What are you likely to buy next?
A Chrysler Delta 1.6 diesel SR looks interesting and a bit different, its certainly a better looking car than the Skoda :).
