Pros : good fuel economy, strong car, smooth on the road

Cons : expensive servicing and parts, very much costely spares parts

Skoda Octavia is very expensive in handling. It means the saving you make in the fuel is recovered by the company in repairs. Although parts which are changed during wear and tear are not so much expensive for other cars, but due to availabily of the same at only octavia service outlets, they are provided at very high cost. e.g Clucth plate change = Rs. 25000/-, Engine Belt = Rs. 25000/-, A.C fan change = Rs. 11000/-

    It is not fair to charge abnormal prices to users.The Skoda company need to think of this issue seriously.This is not a good sign for a developing company if they ignore

    I bought 1 skoda octavia ambiente 1.9 tdi, second hand vehicle. My god I am seriously regretting why the heck I bought it. My entire months salary went in servicing it, again the spares are so costly, too hard to afford.I would say middle class people go for Maruthi of Hundai but not Skoda.... u will regret.
