Skoda Fabia vRS 1.4 TSI vRS Hatch 5d DSG (2012/62) - Owner Review

It's a hatchback and it's quick. It has ample rear leg room and boot space considering it's size.

Living with it

2 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Yes! The engine is being replaced soon due to the notorious high oil consumption issue. There doesn't seem to be much coverage of this in the motoring press which is disappointing. Maybe VAG are gagging them?

What's most practical about your car?
It's a hatchback and it's quick. It has ample rear leg room and boot space considering it's size.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
It's not an option but the DSG gearbox is fantastic!
