Did you buy this car new or used?


How much did you pay? (including all on-road costs)


What were your needs when you bought this car? Has it fulfilled those needs?

This is the fourth Octavia we have owned. Each one has been an improvement on the previous model, and this one has certainly met all our needs.

What were your initial thoughts about the car? Tell us why it appealed to you.

Most impressed by the appearance, the performance and presentation of the car. Very happy with the vehicle and would recommend to anyone.

What have you discovered since owning the car?

All our expectations and hopes have been met. The car has proved to be trouble-free, and by using the Eco mode, we can get 700kms from a tank load of petrol.

What do you like/dislike about the car?

There is nothing we dislike about the car, and the only possible concern is that the servicing of the car, so as to maintain the warranty, seems to be on the expensive side.







Value for money


Overall rating


Lastly, would you buy this vehicle again?


Why would/wouldn't you buy it again?

We are very happy with the car and would be very keen to replace it with a similar updated model. This could possibly change if we decided to buy an electric vehicle, but due to the great run we have had with Skodas, it would be unlikely for us to look at different brands.
