Overall reliability

Excellent value for money offering brilliant performance with great load carrying capacity

An estate car that can be enjoyed with brilliant performance and good economy but nevertheless offers family comfort and space. The Blackline with additional equipment including Sat Nav, leather and DAB radio provided the icing on the cake. Residuals might not be as good as equivalent models in the VAG range but the value for money on purchase more than offsets that. Unfortunately, it now appears that the VAG group have decided that Skoda prices should get closer to Audi/VW so this one might be my last Skoda after a run of 4 consecutive new cars.

Reliability of all four has been exceptional with only one warranty claim that was dealt with efficiently and with total satisfaction. Even out of warranty there were no issues and dealer servicing was sound and inexpensive.
