Have you had any problems with the car?
It was fun and easy to drive BUT There reality is that the 48 mpg average is in fact 35 mpg. whilst I know the manufacturers all lie on their figures this was driving it gently rather than thrashing it all. this was over a 12000 period. Even more crucial This engine despite being well received can be problematic. It burns oil like no other car in 30 years driving. The skoda figures lean to a litre per 1000 miles- I got no where near that! The hidden cost of oil usage even at 1 litre /1000 miles with synthetic oil at about £16 a go soon mounts up £192 a year at 12k a year! As far i can gather this engine is causing problems for VAG who may well be discontinuing it. I SOLD the car.

What's most practical about your car?
5 doors and easy to park.
