Skoda Fabia Hatchback 1.2 Classic 5d (2003/03) - Owner Review

Spacious boot. Good fuel economy. Came with 4 winter tyres/wheels which make it zip around easily in the icey and snowy Czech winters.

Skoda Fabia Hatchback (00-07)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Practical. A car from me is nothing more than a machine to get me from A to B with minimum fuss and expense. Build quality wins over unecessary gadgets and vulgar styling.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
It's a nice looking little car, so no negative vibes about it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
No. I'm 6' 4" and it really was too small for me.

What are you likely to buy next?
The biggest small car I can find that is not made in France or Italy.

Have you had any problems with the car?
No. Solid Czech/German engineering. Only complaint is the seats - uncomfortable after an hours driving - and I'm not heavy.

Spacious boot. Good fuel economy. Came with 4 winter tyres/wheels which make it zip around easily in the icey and snowy Czech winters.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
No gadgets, which I prefer. Simple functional interior.
