Skoda Fabia Hatchback (07-14)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm a bit different, not one of the crowd.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
The looks have made it a bit of a marmite car. Some love it, some hate it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not. Found the whole experience with the purchase and now the countless issues I'm having with the garage too much of a headache to have with a car that is only 14 months old.

What are you likely to buy next?
Ford Focus.

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
February 2009

Did you get a good deal and why?
Dealer would not budge on price, or extras, so probably not such a good deal.

I liked the way it looked, and was impressed by interior build quality.

Atrocious. Found out after I bought the car that they were only interested in moving the metal.
