-

When did you buy the car?
October 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
The salesman knocked £200 off the sticker price without me asking, full 12 month Skoda warranty (with RAC Breakdown) included and a good finance deal

Needed a bigger car than the smart I was running, this was reasonably priced at a franchised dealer

Not pushy at all no high pressure sales, no pressure to add extras such as paint protection.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I'm shocked, I didn't think small cars could be like this. No engine or wind noise at speed, just a tiny bit of road roar. The seats are comfortable, precise steering, excellent visibility, good handling and a quality of ride that could be from a much bigger car.

What's it like to park?
No problems so far

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Started smelling of animals after owning it a couple of days, dealer allowed me to exchange it under their 30 day program, unfortunately no Fabias in at my price range

What's most practical about your car?
The fact it's a 5 door hatchback, should make an ideal van for runs to the DIY stores etc!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
That solid whumpf when you shut a door
