Skoda Fabia Saloon 1.4 16V (75bhp) 4d Auto (2001/Y) - Owner Review

Hampered heavily by automatic transmission, ride is comfortable but sloppy and unenthusiastic in performance driving.

Skoda Fabia Saloon (01-05)

Value

2 out of 5

Only avaliable in Classic+ Trim, hatch is much better for value.

Costs

1 out of 5

Consumes more fuel and releses more emissions than the 2.0 version. What happened?

Driving

Hampered heavily by automatic transmission, ride is comfortable but sloppy and unenthusiastic in performance driving.

Performance

1 out of 5

17.3 seconds 0-60 is taking the mickey. Though it pulls strongly in 1st and second, it needs to be floored on hills and you need to use the low range settings often.

Reliability

3 out of 5

Good, but the on-board computer cocks up frequently.

5 out of 5

Rapidly becoming known as a massive turn-around, you can get a high spec VW for much less of the price.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Good, sturdy and a good trim, but a little plane Jane.
