Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.4 16V Ambiente 5d (2006/55) - Owner Review

06 reg. Smooth, precise steering. Throttle needs 20k revs to avoid stalling until you're used to it. Still running in but performance quite adequate despite 30k rev limit until 1k miles or so.

Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Value

5 out of 5

Got a fair deal with sunroof and metallic. Similar cars would all have cost much more.

Costs

4 out of 5

Only bought petrol so far, but servicing costs at local dealer look good. Equipment level good for price.

Performance

4 out of 5

Expect it to be more than adequate after running in period.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Too soon to tell. Everything works on delivery, car very well presented.

Image

4 out of 5

If you're concerned about image, dye your hair blonde and call yourself Brad. The dealer - Barkers, Hull - was friendly and very obliging. A rarity in itself these days.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Coming from a micra 1.3 this seems plush. Smooth, quiet, stable ride. Lots of room up front, I'm 6' and have leg room to spare. Good elbow room between seats, plenty headroom even with sunroof. Passengers tell me rear seat space good for car size.

Security

4 out of 5

too soon to tell. Suspect car not high on joyriders hotlist. Other owners tell me starting without key is very difficult.

Service

5 out of 5

No reason to suspect level of after sales will not match service so far.
