Who wants to nick a Skoda?

Service

2 out of 5

The local dealership provided and excellent service but after they closed the one in the next town were cronic and quibbled about warranty claims and fitted reconditioned parts rather than new ones without saying what they had done (naughty).

Replaced at 80K and then again at 130K.

Other
Indicator/hazard unit changed four times. Drive shaft went at 40K. Steering rack replaced twice. Car was used as a taxi and if there was a decent local dealer I'd probably buy another one.
