Have you had any problems with the car?
Well- After 3 months NS front passenger window had a on/off fault skoda refused it was there. After 10 months of owning the car i Realised my 12v socket wasn't working also denied by skoda After 5 months they had admitted there is a fault but wont fix it for a till next year . When i took it in for a service i got my car back with the service light still on! It doesn't go into gear properly majority of the time. And skoda are reluctant to help with anything.

What's most practical about your car?
It turns on.
