Skoda Octavia Hatchback (98-05)

Value

5 out of 5

A lot of car for not much money! Prices fall easily however.

Costs

4 out of 5

Quite economical for a large car.

Driving

3 out of 5

Does everything you want it to do without much excitement.

Performance

3 out of 5

With a bit of boot, the 2 litre motor will kick in quite nicely.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Free servicing and AA Cover a bonus! Boot solenoid failed leaving the boot locked for three weeks! Spare key took four months to arrive - after constant nagging!

Rear legroom sacrificed at the expense of a gigantic boot.
