Ordered 10, making a taxi company :D.
My mum took advantage of the Fabia deal, she's on her second Skoda, both have provided hassle free motoring. I took the 'fast' Octavia out for a test drive and it was a seriously good car. Think I want the Yeti though!
I like the Octavia but isn't this a pretty old wheezy engine?

That's pretty secure! :p:D

Better change your order to diesels!

Possibly a good deal if you live near the Carfile Skoda dealer which is normally in the Midlands. Poor deal if you have to travel. Plus your local dealer will probably throw in mats. I ordered a Mazda from Carfile at a saving of over £4k. My local dealer would only only give £1.5k off. Factor in one way car rental, hotel, kebab in Stoke, and fuel there and back and the saving was still £3.8k.
Skoda joint 3rd in manufacturers what car 2011, says it all, cracking deal form a happy Skoda driver.:D
Sounds good. Is that the on the road price or are there any hidden extras?

It's just a badge TBH and it's all about snobbery. There was nothing wrong with the old Skodas but everyone wanted a reason to have a laugh at someone else's expense down the pub because they bought a Vauxhall/Ford which were not much better than the Skoda's of the day, but were twice the price.

There are plenty of VW logos on individual parts under the bonnet. Skoda are very overpriced though IMO - they've tried to convert it from an economy brand to a "you're getting a VW with a different badge on it". VW's themselves are pretty $h** but people seem to think they're great for some reason. If you want cheap and good nowadays you're probably far better off looking at brands like Hyundai - you get far more for your money.

Far from it. Also far more economical and powerful than previous equivalent cylinder sized petrol engines. But the diesels are far more popular for obvious reasons, hence the deal on this model.

I honestly thought this deal existed because the engine is an old unit that is being taken out of production.

"more economical and powerful than previous equivelants" - in the VAG group I assume you mean because judging by the performance and economy figures there are more economical, cleaner 1.6 engines out there in mainstream cars.

Despite anewman's comments, yes this is the previous generation engine. It's good, but not as good as the new ones. The car has effectively been replaced by the 1.2 TSi

For my money, I'd rather have had the VAT-off offer on a latest generation engine than 25% off of the old one, Though as they've not got such a good deal on it would be a close run thing...
Good deal I say...especially now its rated as third out of ten by whatcar...
Wo - seriously tempted by this. I looked at a vRS recently, and was amazed by the size of the boot which is deceptively large (ideal for families). May need to book a test drive me thinks....
Taxi drivers use these a lot where I live,only thing is the seats are like a wood park bench hard and uncomfortable.Wouldn't like to do a long journey on them
Good price though
Hot,

but i do miss the OLD Skoda jokes, like......

Why have skodas got rear heated windows? To keep your hands warm when your pushiung it.

OR

How do you double the price of a skoda? Fill up the tank

If it's any consolation, my first one (2003 Octavia) broke down when it was a couple of days old requiring a push start. It did, of course, happen while I was in front of a group of mates :-(

Once that was sorted we ran it for another 100,000 miles no problem and have recently bought a newer one

Oh don't worry, none taken. I love the jokes, not least of which being that it allowed me to buy an A4 Avant (ish) for Fiesta money
This has a bloody terrible engine. The rest of the car is excellent. If your looking at this type of car buy a 2nd hand 2.0tdi for the same money, much better buy.
need diesel version especially with current fuel prices
Hot but you can get the excellent 1.2TSI for about £1200 more iirc.

The engine is just a run out model to clear the old stock. VW and Audi are doing the same with the 1.4 version of this engine.....Which i had back in 1997 in my mk3 Golf!

Would you care to expand on why VW's are 'pretty $h**'? I'm on my 4th passat, which is also my 17th VW in as many years, and i guarantee I've had less trouble than you (because I've NEVER had a brake down or fault), and lost less money in depreciation!

Have to agree but percentage wise the Skoda depreciates the same amount as the VW. I moved to Skoda as i was fed up with VW's appauling service and the fact that they are very overpriced (got my VRS for £12k less than a Golf GTD).

The Hyundai Coupe my mrs used to have cost a fortune to maintain as the parts prices were ridiculous. They look cheap on the face of it, but end up costing you a fortune to run.
Fantastic car, great buy
Awful engine, crap economy for it's meagre power output. You get what you pay for in this case.

I have an Octavia VRS. It is an excellent, practical, sporty car. I have managed to put a two-seater sofa in the back and close the boot. The estate format does 0-60 in 7.4 seconds. The downside of the tight suspension and being a bit lower to the ground is that the ride can be a bit harsh.

Actually a good car and a reasonable engine for your average Doris and Arthur to pootle to bowls in.

I've had my 52 plate VW Passat for 3 1/2 years now, all i hve to do is fill it up tax it and put it through its mot, have had no problems whatsoever barring tyres and pads, looking at a new car soon and i'll probably get a Passat again

If you have had 17 VW's in 17 years, perhaps you haven't run them long enough to find any problems. I have an 02 Nissan Primera that has had no mechanical faults or breakdowns in 3 plus years. It has cost me zero in repairs, not even brake pads etc., just the MOT price. Not saying VW's aren't reliable, just that if you change your car frequently, and buy newish ones anyway, you aren't really testing their long term reliability.

This looks a good deal if you are intending to keep the car a while - depreciation is the real cost of running a car, but most people forget about it as it's kind of 'hidden', unlike road tax or mpg costs.

The general consensus in the trade is that VW's are only average to below average in reliability. When you factor that to the quality image and badge that VW likes to portray and the premium prices then this just doesn't stack up.

I agree that if you've had 17 VW's in 17 years then the warranty picking up the cost of repairs softens the blow of niggles and breakdowns.

The big surprise is that Skoda use similar VW parts but to a higher reliability standard for lower cost.
Wouldn't buy one myself but still a great price for this spec of car. If Skoda were still poor cars and unreliable the cabbies wouldn't use em.

"Would you care to expand on why VW's are 'pretty $h**'?



My experience of moving from old Skodas to VW era ones is that it's the VW parts and "improvements" that cause all the problems, like the self-destruct plastic thermostat housings etc. Yep the original Skoda ones were cast aluminium alloy and never broke, and if the thermostat failed all you needed was a £5 thermostat and 50p gasket. Now you need the whole housing at £40 and it's always the housing itself that fails before the thermostat. The only reason for the plastic ones seems to be cost cutting. That's not to say Skodas themselves never had any common issues before VW involvement of course.
