Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Value

4 out of 5

Cheaper than a VW, but just as good (if not better).

Costs

4 out of 5

Servicing is reasonable. Currently averaging 74mpg on motorway journeys at constant 70mph (yes, that's right, SEVENTY FOUR mpg!!!)

Driving

4 out of 5

Very composed all round.

Performance

4 out of 5

Very quick diesel. Great motorway cruiser and fairly nippy around town.

Reliability

5 out of 5

75,000 miles in 2 years and not a single problem. Amazing.

Still the butt of jokes, but only amongst those who know nothing about what makes a good car!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Slightly utilitarian look and feel, but still comfortable.

Super smooth, although slightly truck-like throw needs getting used to.
