    3 out of 5 3.0

  • Living with it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Engine Management light on at 327 miles,I am told this is affecting every Octavia VRS TD,diagnosed as the glow plug relay. Update 4/12/2006 This vehicle is becoming a nightmare-7 visits to the dealer (so far!!!) for resets and rectification work! 7 days off the road so far :( I am reliably informed that ALL VW/Audi's with this engine have the same problems!!!!!

    What's most practical about your car?

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    None of note-they all work really well-ordered with cruise,dual zone air/rear electric windows/centre armrest,maxi-dot display and auto wipers/lights/auto dim mirror. I am not impressed with the auto lights (too sensitive) or the auto wipers (either too sensitive or too slow to react!)
