I am Presently using the Skoda Fabia new Model 1.2 TDi .it as much improved when Compared to old Models.The preformance and Noise Problem Sloved and also my Delear (Mahavir Auto) looking after the service of the vechile in Equal itervals of time.
I just had a long drive with my Fab (almost 2450 kms in 5 days & without any substitute driver). We traveled about 640 kms from Kolhapur to Bangalore & that in a record time (below 6 hrs)! We further enjoyed a nice trip to Chennai, Mysore & Shravanbelgola. The experience was amazing! No fatigue, no any sign of discomfort! Hardly any other hatch can match the comfort, ride quality & performance one can have with the new Fabia.
I tested my Fabia in every possible way – driving in rains & during night time, at high speed (up to 160 kmph); surprisingly there was no any steering rattle, some 100+ kms stretch of a really bad/ countryside road (that took almost 6-7 hrs for us), congested city traffic of Bangalore/ Chennai & what not? fabia surpassed all the hurdles with ease & proved the superb ‘QUALITY’ one should always ask for,
