Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.4 16V Comfort 5d (AC) (2000/W)

Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.4 16V Comfort 5d (AC) (2000/W) - Owner Review

We previously had a Polo 1.6GLX (96M) and the Fabia is better in every respect. It's quicker, handles better, looks better... what more is there to say?

Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Value

5 out of 5

Excellent for the money.

Costs

5 out of 5

None so far - still under warranty. Fuel economy fairly good at 42mpg. Cheap tax, too.

Performance

4 out of 5

See above. Plenty quick enough for most purposes. Cruises happily at 70mph (honest) on the motorway. Could be nippier around town, but picks up noticably above 3000rpm (aren't 16v's great!)

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems.

As good, if not better than any other supermini. Anyone with half a brain knows they're getting a new Polo for considerably less money.

Comfort

4 out of 5

The front seats could do with a little more lateral support, but I defy anyone not to find a comfortable driving position.

Security

3 out of 5

Not tested, although we did have an alarm fitted for peace of mind (this really ought to be standard).

Service

5 out of 5

Nothing is too much trouble for our local dealer (Fish Brothers, Swindon) although the car's still under warranty. Ask me again in 12 months time.

Problems

Bodywork
Electric mirror control surround broke, replaced under warranty.
