2011-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

It has not let me down yet in close to 2 years and nothing has gone wrong. Servicing is good as got a package with dealer that works out well and get a clean once a mouth which is good in bad weather times. mpg is not brillinant easly dipping to 28mpg, but for a 4x4 that is quite nippy I cant complane.

A very small blemish appeared in the rear wheel arch, fixed by skoda with no cost to me. It averages 53 - 59mpg in the warmer months. this drops to the mid 40's in the winter. cheap to insure, and tax too. The car actually has 121 bhp not 108 and is quite nippy. feels very capable on the motorway.

One issue, dealt with very quickly and efficiently by the dealer - other than regular servicing and that one issue, nothing else has failed or broken. Good mpg for the type of driving it does. servicing at the dealers has been far lower than expected.

Car is only 2 weeks old, and nothing has gone wrong. I am averaging 55mpg on my daily commute. car was out of "running in " after 1 week and the 55mpg is based on the 2nd weeks fuel used. tank brimmed car driven 260miles and then brimmed.

I have never experienced any problems with the car since owning it. For the size and style of the car I am happy with the mpg. it has had one service since purchase and the cost was reasonable at the dealer I bought it from.

After 2 years of motoring had to change the wiper blades. The fuel economy is very poor and nothing like the stated brochure figures, I would have bought diesel but for the dpf issues.

No faults to date. I've had the car for over 6mths and the car computer tells me it will be over 12mths before the service is due.cheap insurance and road tax makes it very economical.

Had a small leak in the sunroof and a minor squeak from the aircon, both very promptly resolved by excellent dealer. Cheap and very cheerful, what can I say, the 1.2 tsi is excellent.

No issues to report so far. The yet's not the most aerodynamic of cars therefore it's not particularly economical at high speed, but on a roads it can be astonishingly economical.

Had not owned it more than a week before I noticed the rear wiper was not working. New engine so not yet getting best mpg yet but in general it is not bad for running costs.
