THE FABIA SKODA

We bought this 2nd hand Fabia Monte Carlo skoda in February 2019.....It is so reliable and the driving position is terrific. Very economical . This car is driven by both me and my wife...she uses it for going to her casual medical work. We would definitely recommend the Fabia.

Nice stylish car

Got this car because wanted something different and also it has a very good safety rating. The look of the Skoda Fabia and the interior looks very stylish and some of the features include bluetooth, reversing camera and smartlink, which can connect to android smartphones. I find the engine a bit noisy, but overall when driving the car it performs well. It is a good sized car, not too big and not too small. So far, happy with the Fabia.

Great First Car

The Skoda Fabia comes highly recommended for those looking for a first car, or another option to the Suzuki Swift/Toyota Yaris/VW Polo. It is well built and styled nicely both inside and out, especially with the sports interior. It is basic on the inside, but does not look overly bare. The car is also well insulated, so when driving it is quite smooth. The engine is also very quiet, and the steering is light.

Perfect Small Family Car!!!

A beautiful, well made and Economical car that has the looks and the technology.

Very Comfortable and perfectly sized for a small family!!

Does 4.8l/100km - has an amazing sound system - Brilliant handling and sharp looks. We're so impressed with our MY12 Monte Carlo and we look forward to driving it for many more K's!

Gearbox Problems!!! Beware!!!

My Skoda Fabia III is 7 months old. It required the mechatronics replaced after 4 months under warranty and again more Gearbox faults. Very dissapointed. I have lost my faith in the Skoda brand. Quite rattly in front end over speed bumps when travelling slow. No leg room in back.

Awesome Car

Done 48000 kms since purchased 2 years ago.

Not a single issue. A pleasure to drive.

Despite what many people think, no DSG concerns and servicing reasonable.

Has been excellent on the tyres and fuel economy close to the pre-purchase figures. Definitely would recommend anyone buy one of these.

Definitely looks more sporty that Polo equivalent and for a lot less :)

I have 2013 Skoda fabia. At times it can be slightly stiff when changing gears into 1st and reverse. All the higher gears are fine. What maybe the problem?

Has anyone had ongoing issues related to spark plugs? I have a 2013 Fabia I bought new and every year I have experienced issues intermittently where the car starts to shudder, three warning lights come on and then it loses power. This has happened seven or eight times since I bought the car and every time it has come back to something to do with spark plugs, A couple of times one of the leads had popped off, another time the mechanic had the car for two days trying to work it out and then found that all the plugs had worn out. He said he had never seen spark plugs that worn. The next time it happened roadside assist came out and when they touched a lead it snapped off. And now a year later it has happened again and is at the mechanic getting checked, started shuddering, warning lights on and no power. I am wondering if this is a common issue with this model.
