Skoda Octavia (1998–2004)

Last updated 26 August 2016

Satisfying drive and responsive engines. Decently built. Owners rate them highly. The vRS is quite pacy. Practical estate is better than the saloon. Taxi drivers loved the 1.9 TDI and many did 200k miles plus.
Engines can develop problems. The attitude of badge snobs who should know better. Make sure it wasn't a taxi.
