Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Value

3 out of 5

Needs more zip for the money. But good build quality.

Costs

4 out of 5

V Economical @ 55mpg. Low maintenance. Low emissions.

Driving

3 out of 5

Positive gearbox.

Performance

2 out of 5

Very poor acceleration. Brakes not sharp, but steering is responsive. Engine is fine at steady motorway speeds but needs more power on long hills.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Starts first time every time.

Nothing special, but so what. Just remember the saving over a similar VW. Why the duff green winged arrow logo - looks just like a chicken's head!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Roomy enough for a 6ft 5"" driver. Suspension comfortable unlike VW. Rear passengers approve. Comfortable at speed, but suffers wind noise.

Sensor on pas replaced. Water entered via window seals then door panels so dealer had to silicone seal - a recognised problem. Suffers badly from winter condensation.
