Is the Skoda Citigo any good?

Is the Skoda Citigo a good car to buy?

We would certainly recommend the Skoda Citigo if you are looking for a small car. It is economical to run, good to drive and has a quality feel. You should also find plenty of examples to choose from. One word of caution is that there have been numerous reports of gearbox and clutch failures, and timing belts require replacement at 4 years or 40,000 miles, so look for an example that has been well cared-for and has a full dealer service history.

Other options to consider are the Kia Picanto and the Hyundai i10, both of which are also excellent city cars.
