Skoda will get better and better, but the work is not finished.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Quality interior, very good materials. Very good driving position, good chairs, ergonomic. But the drive train not good on poor surface, makes noise on potholes and not very comfy. Pretty silent on motorway.

Problems

Bodywork
Too sensitive paint, but looks good.

Engine
Antifreeze leaking. Transmission chain changed. Clutch disk changed (at 60,000km). Engine thermostat changed.

Gearbox
No problems, good shifting.

Other
Twice changed the dash speaker. Electric windows module one time(warranty). Twice the water temperature sensor. Steering sensor(this is bad because the steering can get very very light at high speed). The windows squeak. It is enough.
