That I value substance and practicality.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They all like it and can see it's a quality piece of kit.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes. In fact just bought an older (petrol) one for my fiancee.

What are you likely to buy next?
Whilst another Fabia would be a happy next car, I may just be won over by the new Skoda Rapid, which looks highly impressive.
