Remapped to 210 BHP, very comfortable, pretty reliable, just regular maintenance & a replacement starter motor. Does not like supermarket fuel (95 RON) so I use V power.
Very practical, well built, fun to drive, quite rare.
Great economy for a heavy 4x4 petrol turbo (26-38 MPG)
Brakes fade early, suspension a bit soft, otherwise a wolf in sheeps clothing. (read more)

Hello , i own a skoda octavia combi 1.8t 4x4 150hp\awd , tunned in 195hp. It,s a splendid car, good looking, nice interior, good on mileage, enough horse power, plenty of room for the passanger annd in the trunk. Overall my best choice ever and i have owned a "few" cars like a golf 4 vr6(2004) , an audi a6(2004) ,a subaru impretza (2006)and others. I am sure to say that this car is the best in all and it keeps it's value after time. Good luck! (read more)

the engine management light came on shortly after buying it from a trader had it serviced at main dealer lots of theories but no solution apart from a bill for 1500 when light is on i have no power when it is of car is good but light has a habit of coming on whenever.try having confidence to overtake knowing that you could lose all power mid over take. no one seems to know how to fix

After 30000 miles engine management light on and dealer unable to rectify problem even after replacing (or so they say) many parts unnecessarily. Meanwhile performance began to suffer. Finally Skoda agreed to replace 'faulty' ecu. Well now my Octavia performs like never before, stunning performance but, yes you've guessed it, the lights still on but all problems resolved with the exception of a hot starting problem. To be more precise this is more of a problem relating to running after... (read more)

Having done 80k miles in two and a half years I have found the Skoda Octavia 1.8 20v Turbo 4x4 Elegance to be comfortable and reliable. It is certainly on a par with my previous Subaru Forester Turbo and much cheaper to run. I average 35mpg day to day with over 40mpg achievable on a long run. Service intervals have been 16-20k miles and servicing costs are very reasonable.
The engine has shown problems on cold start-ups since new which the dealers seem unable to fix. Waiting 2 minutes... (read more)

I was very sad to own this Skoda Octavia 1.8 20v Turbo 4x4 Elegance estate car not because of the stigma that the marque suffers from but because it lived up to every inch of the stigma and more.
Its badly built, unreliable and costs a fortune to keep on the road.
Skodas after sales service is appalling and virtually non existent. I had a continual problem with tyre wear and dif malfunction and the only way to resolve the problem was to sell the car. Skoda were as helpful as a tub of Ice... (read more)

The change from 2.0MPI to the Skoda Octavia 1.8 20v Turbo 4x4 Elegance estate 150bhp engine is the best part of the car the acceleration and power of the car is phenomanal. There is an unoticable switch between two and four wheel drive which is controlled by the Skoda Hadlex clutch system wich gives a very smooth ride.
As it is available in the elegance range only it means it comes with all the top spec items which means no accesaries are needed as everything is givern as standard - the... (read more)
