Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

First time driving a Skoda. Mixed feelings. Bit of a Friday afternoon feel to it. Decent drive, little style. Interior is a little dated. Touch screen analogue LCD? radio failing now.Not as economic, spacious as a Mondeo estate-has less presence. Some expensive repairs. Cheap to run and insure but overall 6/10. I gave my Ford a 7. I feel like a private hire driver!

How reliable do you find the car?

Replaced dual fly wheel and clutch. Cylinder had corroded. Regular issues with front springs and brake discs.

Does the car do everything you expected it to do?

2nd hand car. Suspicion of rear end accident damage (not mentioned at point of sale) rear bumper parking sensors regularly fall out inside the bumper
