    The ones from 59 plate onwards are lovely cars, they always turn my head when i see them on the road..

    The new FSi engine (petrol) have had a small number of engines fail with chains breaking, the diesels have the usual modern diesel issues..

    I just can't get my head round the looks, I have never liked the look of an Octavia, for me the newer they are they worse they look.

    Had a 1.8T in a Leon Cupra R and loved the engine though.

    The newest one on the tele adverts at the mo is lovely looking in my opinion!!

    I still don't think personally I could buy a skoda full stop! Even though there good cars these days I just couldn't bring myself to do it lol

    I had a bog standard 1998 octavia and though tit was pretty good for a base model. The only 1.8T i have driven was my dads old MG ZT and I quite liked that.

    Dont do it, you will regret it, the old octavia looks like a square matchbox on wheels! Its looks well dated! However the brandnew octavia is nice, but as others have said i dont think i could bring myself to have a skoda....still! I know they are vw/audi but they still have a stigma to many people, and for the money a new one would cost i would rather buy a 2 year old 5 series! Or similar.

    1.8Ts are characterless but very strong and very tunable.
