VAT free on Skodas

PhilimPhilim

Skoda have extended their VAT offer to include Fabia, Roomster and pre facelift Octavia.
That is a bargain - a new Fabia from £7200 (you can even get it at £79 pm on contract)

Old Octavia is a bigger bargain with VAT off, free servicing and good finance.

Remember these are dealer supplied advertised manufacturer prices so please dont moan that you can it cheaper on internet sites.

    One of the better cars you can buy these days, with plenty of happy customers slugging it out with Lexus at the top of the league table for the last few years and beating their parent VW and sister Seat into a cocked hat:

    What the "brains" at VW (now Porsche) should have done is got rid of the name, good cars but too many memories from years ago.

    I think they have actually used that reputation quite well with some of the clever advertising that played on it, it made small minded people look a bit silly for not keeping up. But that was only in Britain, opinions on Skoda in other countries is not so prejudiced and the brand never had much stigma to lose.

    I currently drive a 1994 Skoda Favorit Estate <<< see avatar. The car was designed before any VW involvement (it was Skoda's first front wheel drive car in recent years and reputed to be good enough to impress VW in to buying Skoda [although another story has been floated around that Skoda were going to Sue VW due to some nazi theft of designs that were very close to an old VW car]). The only VW related bits are the Bosch monomotronic fuel injection system, the air filter box is nicked off a VW polo of the time, as are the rear drum braes and that's about it. The car is perfectly fine.

    What people have against Skoda is nothing other than badge snobbery. People who think Skoda's are **** have largely never owned, driven, or been in one. And the people who think Skodas are **** show how much they know about cars by driving ones that really are **** like Ford, Fiat, Vauxhall, Peugot, Citroen, Renault etc :D (is my reverse badge snobbery working?!)

    People also tend to forget that Skoda had a good history in rallying. In fact the Favorit won outright in the 2 litre category world FIA championships (now known as WRC) back in 1994 beating cars like the Ford Cosworth etc etc (not bad for a 1.3l engine).

    I would not even admit to owning a Skoda
    never mind telling people it is a 15 year old one. Sorry but I will stick with my 58 plate Vauxhall Vectra which in my opinion is a far superior car to to any Skoda.


    Well I somehow doubt that Skoda (VW ) are in the same financial mire that Vauxhall ( GM ) are at this time.

    Personally I would never admit to owning anything from the GM stable, and no I don't own a Skoda, but prefer them to any Vauxhall.

    You obviously ave never been in a Skoda Fabia VRS (2005 reg) :-D

    130bhp remapped to 170bhp. The Skoda badge never bothered me.

    thats the funniest thing ive heard today! someone slagging off skoda/audi/vw/seat by comparing them to a vectra!! argueably one of the most boring cars ever made with a chassis made of jelly.
    Dont own a skoda but the octavia vrs is a great cheap way to own a golf GTI (albeit with a grim interior).
    man that was funny.
    Thanks lenzie.

    It's funny to see the badge snobbery - people are often miffed that a Skoda is better than their big name car.

    As for the 'filth' driving them, always thought that term said more about the person using it than it does about our Police, but they drive them because they are more reliable than most of the big names and yes faster too. As someone else said - try an Octavia RS, then form an opinion.

    Oh - hot by the way.

    :-D You're an idiot.

    Also taxi drivers use them more than other makes , well they do in my area, i recently test drove a 1.9tdi and a 2.0tdi Octavia elegance with the intentions of a purchase and i was very impressed, have goggled and goggled and cannot find a truly bad review on them. Reliable, and cheap to run at around 55mpg and low tax /insurance, please don't insult skoda/VW/Audi by comparing them to the likes of a Vauxhall. Its time people woke up and got over the old badge stigma issue.
    I currently have a old renult laguna hatch diesel and it has run well and pretty much problem free for the last 9 years i have had it, but looking at the newer lagunas they have really bad electrics problems not to mention they are overpriced. So in this case the older model knocked the socks off the newer things change you have to do your homework.
    Off to look and a possible purchase at the weekend and hopefully i will be a Skoda Driver!!!!:w00t::w00t::w00t:

    Skodas are ****, I'll stick with my zonda thanks.

    The old jokes are dated now. Any doubters get in and drive one! Same base as VW/Audi but loads cheaper. I had a Fabia VRs and it was an excellent car for the money.

    That's really funny. That will be one of the Vectras they're selling off for like £7k at the moment I guess?

    Skodas are well made, reliable cars made by craftsmen who now have full access to the VAG group's parts bin. Anybody who has actually taken the trouble to drive one would say they are excellent cars.

    Good deal, voted hot:thumbsup:

    Rear Engined Skodas where the best. Still driving one today. Cant beat them in the snow, except in a 4x4 of course. Anyone who says otherwise has no experience of them. Great cheap cars. Only problem was they were designed for mountainous snowy cobbled streets, not the M6, and people always poke fun at what they dont understand. In 15 years of Skodas, never broken down once.
