Very comfortable in front, tight squeeze in back.

Would only buy another Skoda because I had excellent service from 3 previous Skodas (Felicia).

Problems

Drivers door hinge broke causing door to sag.

Other
Central locking opens and closes by itself, windscreen wipers often refuse to turn off and are very noisy. Heater fan failed and Skoda can not supply a replacement part that actually has the same connections as original!
