A great car for the money with minor niggles

had the vrs tdi 184 with 10k on the clock when I picked it up ;race blue metallic great colour with half leather. This car nearly ticked all the boxes except for some minor niggles.
1.The stereo turns its self down above a certain volume ;what's all that about !
Couldn't listen to Grimethorpe brass band at full volume ;kidding.
2.The ribbing on the seat was becoming unstitched at 28k .
3.The boom from the boot/trunk at low speed was horrendous bought a big rubber mat to deaden it ,come on Skoda you can do better.
4.Twitchy lane assist !!!!
5. 1st and reverse in manual car notchy at times.
Overall the driving was great, smooth and comfortable lots of toys as standard and 2/3rds the price of its stable mates from the VAG group.
