The best car I've ever owned

Having put more than 120,000 miles on our Octavia, I can safely say that it is a superb car. It has not missed a beat, never broken down and only ever required routine maintainence. It has taken us right round this country and made several trips to the continent. OK, its not the fastest car made, not the most stylish, comfort is a bit lacking after a four hour+ drive and a bit more sound proofing would be welcomed. As an all rounder however, the Octavia is very hard to beat and costs buttons to run. For example. the depriciation is currently working out at <£350 a year!
