Great Car To The People That Like The European Confortable And Economy Cars — Performance: This car have a very slow acceleration from 0 to 60 km/h but is really safe and the braking is really amazing for a car of it size. The fuel economy is a advantage cause the car give 35km/g in the city and almost 40km/g in the highway.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Economy, confortable and elegance

Cons: A little Bit slow acelaration

Skoda Vrs — i owned the 1.8 vrs with 180 bhp it was very powerful for the engine size due to being a 20 valve turbo it handled very well with hardly any roll on taking corners at higher speeds the brakes were exceptional with vented discs all round in the time i owned it no major work had to be done only servicing interior looks good with half leather but on the earlier model it had silver center pieces on the seats which if you have children neeeds some cleaning but on later models they got around this by changing the colour to black

Pros: a good fast and reliable car

Cons: a bit plain inside and could do with being four wheel drive

Excelent All Rounder If Not Outstanding In Any One Area — Not a particularly stylish or high performance car, but a good all round workhorse. Being a Diesel it's good on fuel. Particularly well spec'd and better put together than the equivilent VW Golf. Nothing major has gone wrong with it, but you need to keep on top of the servicing.

Pros: Economical and accomodating

Cons: Not a lot really

Octavia 1.8t 20v — Performance – acceleration (exceptional), braking (very good), handling (very good) Build Quality – no repairs needed so far except the service manual ones. no squeaks/rattles Cost of Ownership – gas mileage still meet the manufacture's specification, maintenance very cheap Fun Factor – is this car fun to drive? Let's laugh...with 1.8lt and Turbo charged it is more than fan...its like a racing game!

Pros: Reliability, acceleration, handling

Cons: Style a bit obsolete...but it can be fixed! :)
