Skoda octavia
Dh looking at a new car, fancy Octavia has come up. Now up this end, they are 99% of the time used as taxi's. Any thoughts, I think its a Vrs model. X

Weíve had one for 2 years, a petrol Vrs in dark gunmetal grey with the big graphite wheels. Looks about as far from a taxi as you can imagine 😉
DH does get taken for an unmarked police car sometimes though as he wears black work uniform 🤣
Itís a lovely car with an enormous cavern of a boot, I donít know what weíll replace it with though, the brand new model is horrible in comparison.

We have a Karoq but would just say how much we love it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Skoda.

Weíve not got an octavia but have had a skoda fabia automatic for the past 8 years and itís brilliant... had electrical problems with Renault Megane and then a Nissan note which basically just died, the skoda has been so reliable (touch wood)... itís a 59 reg but only 45k miles on the clock and I wonít change it yet if I can possibly help it...

I had heard they are very reliable, going for a look and see how it looks. Thanks

My mum has had an automatic estate version for about 5 years and loves it. Sheís looking to change it as she wants something smaller now, but itís not given her any problems in all the time sheís had it. Weíve got a Karoq and would also recommend Skoda.

Iíve had one for the last 3 years. Itís a great car, never lets me down and is cheap as chips to run. The kids thought it was called an Uber. If you arenít a badge snob itís using all the same parts as VW and Audi, but at a much better price. Iíd rather spend my money on Florida holidays, my home or the kids than a way to get to and from work.

I will drive anything as long as its safe, xx

My husband has the Skoda Superb which is basically a longer Octavia. No complaints from either of us.
