Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

2 out of 5

Big car for the money - boot bigger than a Rover 75

Costs

1 out of 5

Use a local garage to keep the costs down, need shares in an oil firm!

Driving

Okay for a motorway, but anything else - it wallows!

Performance

Thristy, I never realised Skoda produced a dual fuel car (petrol & oil)!

Reliability

I had a courtesy car more often than mine during the first 6 months!

Must be good, because it hasn't been stolen - worst luck!

Service

1 out of 5

Once they have your money, they didn't want to know!

Problems

Bodywork
Must be the only part made by Skoda, because it hasn't gone wrong - everything else is V.W.

Engine
It burns oil, loose radiator, loose exhaust brackets (3 visits before they found fault!), loose trim under engine!

Gearbox
Nothing yet!

Other
Boot latch, electric rear window dropped out (3 visits to fix!), wheels corroded on - a known problem with VW/ Skoda alloys!
