Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Value

5 out of 5

I fancied a VW Golf - too fat! I looked at a Polo - too cramped! The Fabia was just right.

Costs

5 out of 5

42 mpg and reasonable first service costs. I did have to buy some screen wash.

Driving

4 out of 5

Handles beautifully.

Performance

4 out of 5

I tried the 8v & 16v models before buying. The 16v is worth the extra dosh.

Reliability

5 out of 5

It goes - always.

All those ads! Owning a Skoda will be trendy soon! I don't want to be trendy.

Comfort

5 out of 5

All those adjustments - steering column/seat. One of my reasons for purchase. I did consider buying a Mercedes A class but preferred the Skoda.
