Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

1 out of 5

Seems good until one tries to replace parts on the car.

Costs

1 out of 5

Extremely high, I bought a clutch from BBS for £45, Skoda wanted approx £600.

Driving

Handles well, especially in poor road conditions.

Performance

4 out of 5

Gives a lot of the flasher cars something to think about.

Reliability

1 out of 5

I used mine for work, and it spent most of its life in the garage waiting for basic parts which none of the local Skoda dealers could get. I'm talking about clutch, flywheel, brake discs etc.
