How I fell in love with a Skoda

AdvantagesLarge car feel, small car economy, great quality for the money

DisadvantagesNone really!

"...to my review for the Skoda Felicia 1.3. I actually own one of these. If you're wondering why i am able to write reviews on so many different cars, its simple...... I've worked in the Car auction and Car hire business, so have driven too many cars to mention. Ciao suggests being factual, so i'll use headings, and be as easy to understand as possible. Reliability This Felicia is greatly improved from the skoda's of old, and is a completely ..." Read review

Yes, my hands are warm!

AdvantagesCheap, reliable

DisadvantagesStigma

"I can hear the snickering at the back! Yes i own one, and it does come with rear heated windscreen, but as mine has been breakdown free i have had no reason to get out and push. This is the third car that I've owned since passing my test a little over a year ago, and it has yet to let me down. Although of course it is due for it's MoT next month. Having read another review and it's only failing was an adjustment to the headlamps, i live and hope. The ..." Read review

A Vast Improvement From Yesteryear

AdvantagesCheap. Reasonably comfortable,. Economical

DisadvantagesNot that stylish.Old image problems

"...double the value of a Skoda ?. Answer: "You fill the petrol tank up "! In those days cars produced by companies behind the then "Iron Curtain" were something of a joke and owners of such cheapies went through agonies from their mates. However, as we all know the Czechs peacefully overthrew the yokes of Communism and the old Skoda company was taken over by the German giant Volkswagen. Result a vast improvement in the quality of the cars produced ..." Read review

This may not be what you think!!

AdvantagesCheap

DisadvantagesLack of power at times

"...cash is, wait for it…………… The Skoda Felicia. Our car, a 1.3 International Group “N” car is the best Rally car that we have owned in 7 years of the sport. At a cost of £3600 (including a small package of spares) it has been well spent. In the three events that we have done this year, it has let us down once! The problem: Third gear wanted to be part of the stage rather than part of the car!! Total cost to rectify: £75.00. Two years ago we ran ..." Read review

Reliable car for first time buyers

AdvantagesAll-round economic car, strong body, very safe for passengers

DisadvantagesInterior a bit flimsy, seats not very comfortable, rear seat a bit cramped, expensive parts

"...is what will make the Skoda a particularly attractive purchase. We bought in 1993 the estate version of this car, and have just now decided to change it. Let me tell you the good and bad points. The Skoda has a good strong body and in the few small accidents we were in, it stood up very well with less damage than the other cars involved. This is a major consideration if you have children, as we do. So, the car is very safe for its passengers. However, ..." Read review

A sorry tale.

AdvantagesLow Purchase value

Disadvantagespoor finish, poor quality expensive parts, heavy steering, poor turning circle

"...that was purchased purely because Skoda at that time were offering immediate availability, the Estelle was a basic but reliable car, it served the family well for many years before being passed on to a friend who drove it to Germany and back without a hitch. There was no local dealer here but customer services located a local "service agent" who was very helpful. Sadly despite there being a dealer in the area the Felicia has not been the success ..."

Yes, I drive a Skoda - don't laugh!

AdvantagesEasy to drive, unlikely to get nicked!

DisadvantagesHeavy steering, comfort pretty basic

"...did, however, find a "one-owner" Skoda Felicia for £850. Despite the relatively high price tag (it's certainly the most I've ever paid for a car) I was willing to be persuaded. I laughed when it was suggested that a Skoda might be worthwhile - yes, I've heard all the jokes (and made a few) - but I thought what the heck, let's give it a shot. When I bought the car it had recently been MOT'd, and my previous experience had taught me to expect something ..." Read review

Excellent little car

AdvantagesFree servicing and AA cover

DisadvantagesUncomfortable on long journeys

"What a wonderful little car this is. We bought it on a special deal, 20% deposit, paid for on 3 years interest free credit. Also in the deal was 3 years free AA cover, 3 years free servicing, and with mores extras on top of that, Power steering, central locking, drivers air bag, to name a few. A racing car it is not, around town it is cool enough, on motorways the national speed limit can easily be maintained, with hardly any engine noise. It is also ..." Read review

Czech Mate

AdvantagesWell priced and comfortable

DisadvantagesThe name still puts people off

"...next car would be a Skoda Felicia, my heart sank. The name Skoda normally brings out all the tired old jokes and smart remarks, so I was dreading it. When VW took over Skoda, things began to improve due to the experience of VW, and the Felicia was the first model produced after the takeover. Even the most diehard car snob had to admit that Volkswagen had come up trumps. The Felicia has a satisfactory 1300cc engine, and while it was not as nippy ..." Read review

I love my Skoda!

AdvantagesFuel economy, space, price

DisadvantagesHeavy on the steering, Brand image

"My Skoda Felicia Estate (N reg) is reliable and hasn't let me down in 4 years. Other than putting up with the jokes it has been the best car I have ever owned. My local dealer also does the repairs and servicing. Parts seem easy to get and are fitted swiftly and efficiently, not that we've needed many. Fuel consumption is excellent. I do a mixture of low mileage town driving and moderately longer distance for business. My Felicia was bought second ..." Read review

SKODA FELICIA 1.3

AdvantagesVery very cheap.

DisadvantagesToo small and slow

"This car doesn't really fit very well in the modern world, in many aspects it seems to be too 90's. Even with just one or two people in the car, its acceleration and general speediness is very bad, its far too slow, and you certainly wouldn't want to try and join a road with many cars going high speeds from standing. The space in the car almost verges on impractical. For example you would definalty have great difficulty fitting a weekly food shop ..." Read review

Good allround car

AdvantagesDecent size boot, cheap to run and insure

DisadvantagesNot the best looking, large turning circle.

"I love this car- I bought it for long trips where I needed more space, and it works wonderfully! The boot is roomy, the seats comfortable. It handles very well, and is nice to drive. I should really add that I have the estate version. Mine is a V reg, with power steering. I find it cheap to run. Within the first few weeks of having it, someone went into the back of me at traffic lights. My car came away with a dented bumped. His needed quite ..." Read review

Skoda felicia is low cost & reliable, great for first car

AdvantagesSpacious, reliable, cheap to run, low insurance

DisadvantagesParts tend to rust

"I have owned my Skoda Felicia 1.3 LXi Plus since I was 18 and I am now nearly 23. I love my car, it has been very reliable and very easy to work on as well. The only downside is rust, but then again I had a few bumps in it, so that didn't help. It is a little noisy but with my music on, it fades away into the background. It is quite nippy to say thats its only a 1.3. It is in a low insurance band (Group 5 I think), which makes it perfect for a first ..." Read review
