A Family Hatchback Doubling As A Sports Car. — Great car, decent acceleration due to the 140 bhp engine mated to the 6-speed DSG gearbox. Tyre width was ok, but not for cornering too hard. 50 - 65 mpg (UK). it had load hooks in the boot for the shopping bags - a feature I would like on my other cars. Seats were very supportive under the knees, a pleasure to drive all day - I suppose that's why they are used as taxis. Reliable as well.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: the DSG on the 140 Pump Duse TDi engine was a great combination.

Cons: 2WD DSG is not good on the snow or ice as you can only pull away in first.

Octavia 1.4l Ambiente — This is a fabulous family saloon car. The comfort level is second to none in its class. For a 1.4L engine its quite nippy and ecconomical, safety features are also excellent. JMCL in Jullianstown are an excellent company to deal with, tell Mannie I sent you! I'd highly recommend the Octavia as a quality, safe , economical family car.

Pros: Excellent value for money

Cons: No boot 12v socket
