Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.9 SDI Comfort 5d (2001/Y) - Owner Review

because it is diesel i find that it starts up quicker. no more waiting around for the engine to heat up like in my old petrol car. just as soon as the coils symbol light goes on my dash then its away i go!

November 2006

Did you get a good deal and why?
i wouldnt say i got a fantasic deal really. but i think it was a fair asking price.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
i wanted to get an up to date reliable car that had good specs and was reliable. i was looking at the VW golfs then i was advised to look at fabias. i wont ever look back now!!

What was the dealer like?
very easy to talk to and very easy to get in contact with. when i went to see the car it was in the dark and he made me aware that there was a small scuff mark on the rear bumper that in the light at the time was very hard to notice.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
its a very comfy drive. it may only be an SDI and it doesnt have the same get up and go as the TDI but for me this is perfect! i find that acceleration is good and then once i hit 4th gear it picks up acceleration even quicker!

What's it like to park?
i have had no problems at all with parking.

i have had to call out the RAC once for it didnt start one morning due to the cold i also have managed to break one of my electric mirrors by knocking it on another car but that was entirely my fault!

What's most practical about your car?
because it is diesel i find that it starts up quicker. no more waiting around for the engine to heat up like in my old petrol car. just as soon as the coils symbol light goes on my dash then its away i go!

has to be the electric windows! or the power steering?!
