2016 Skoda Octavia 110 TSI Ambition Review

For many Australians, the name Skoda is as foreign as their Czech-based roots. Still, the automobile maker has come a long way from their first quirky vehicles in the late 80’s through to the Superb and upcoming Kodiak. Skoda is still best known for one thing - offering great value for money on practical, cleverly equipped cars...

Still on the OEM Bosch brake pads at 140,000km...

2013 Skoda Octavia 110 TDI Elegance Review

I own two Skodas One from 2011 and the new one from 2013 the old one having the 103 Tdi and the new one with the 110 tdi Out of the two the earlier 103 tdi performance is far superior to the new one , despite the new car loosing weight and with auto start stop it is still not as efficient as the earlier version.

2015 Skoda Octavia Review

The Skoda Octavia wagon is a compromise car. A car for people who want more than a compact hatch, but not the excess of a medium SUV. It's for people who want space without giving up features, and efficiency without giving up practicality. Octavias start at $23,490 drive away...

2014 Skoda Octavia Review

Most car fanatics like super cars, sporty coupes, brutal V8 sedans, well I like them all but I tend to salivate the most over.... wagons. My passion for performance wagons started thanks very much to Audi and their bonkers RS6 Avant models. The ability to carry the kids and half of Woolworths while at the same time scaring Porsches was just what the doctor ordered...

2012 Skoda Octavia 118 TSI Review

This has been a great car. It was a pretty reasonable cost to buy, I've had no issues at all in the 3 years I've owned it apart from a DSG upgrade. It's really pragmatic motoring. The engine performs brilliantly. Most people who drive it are surprised by the handling, performance and the quiet ride. The head unit is brilliant and works really well...

2013 Skoda Octavia 90 TSI Special Edition Review

MY 2012. Compliance 2013. Totally reliable in every way. Less than 17,000kms and every thing works fine. Service at the selling dealership has been OK but at the 15,000km service they overfilled the engine oil by one litre which shouldn't have happened. Corrected to Skoda specs when I complained. Foaming can wreck an engine. Fuel consumption claims are accurate...
