What does this car say about you?
I like a reliable car.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
It is a nice shape and a huge boot.

Would you buy this car again and why?
The car is now 3 years old but will last me even longer then that. Fed up of losing money buying new/used cars so will keep for a while. When I do buy it will be another Skoda.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The estate holds the road better then the Vrs I had. The 1.9 TDI is a great engine. MPG is amazing. I filled the car with diesel to the rim for a motorway trip and the needle only moved after 100 miles.

What's it like to park?
With the help from the parking sensors it is easy.
