Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

You get a lot of car for the money.

Costs

4 out of 5

Quite good fuel costs. Get 36mpg round town and I don't take it that easy, though parts are expensive.

Driving

5 out of 5

Great drive, excelent view and relaxing when going down the M6 for 4 hours with 3 passengers.

Performance

5 out of 5

Very nippy with the 20v engine. Will blow most 2.0 cars off the road.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No problems so far. Really only need a starter motor, but that was done under warranty.

Image

5 out of 5

Few about and, having a smart appearance, most people can't believe it's a Skoda, especially when it overtakes them.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Very comfortable on long or short jurneys.

Security

1 out of 5

Cat 2 immobiliser standard and deadlocking, but I have put a CAT 1 alarm and immobiliser on it.

Service

1 out of 5

Once they had your money, they didn't want to know. Took some fighting to get it sorted, so now the warranty has run out it won't be going back there.

Problems

Bodywork
Stone chips, and for a grey car they have used a white primer.

Engine

Gearbox

Other
Air vent and ashtray broke before I got it, but got it repaired under warranty.
