Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

£4k less than the equivalent Polo! Servicing decent price as well.

Servicing pretty good value compared to VAG considering they use the same parts

Performance

3 out of 5

Feels like a clock work toy, wind it up and it goes surprisingly well! Handles a bit like a go-kart.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Engine management light keeps coming on & dealer can't find fault. Hasn't had any effect on performance, economy or comfort.

Just keeps on getting better.

Comfort

5 out of 5

I'm 6ft 2 and a 6ft person can sit behind me, amazing in a car this size. I drive 200 mile trips regularly and have never had reason to complain. The stereo is a little tinny if I have to complain.

No alarm, but it does have an immobiliser. Has anyone thought about trying to nick a Skoda yet?!

Service

4 out of 5

Can't fix engine management light, but they're always helpful & are a decent price.
