1998 Skoda Felicia 1.3L
Purchased new. Skoda are now owned by Volkswagen and quality of build
is excellent. This model has improved version of the Skoda 1.3 engine
with fuel injection, electronic ignition and CPU control, now in front
wheel drive configuration. The low price together with a 3 year warranty
and free servicing made this an excellent buy. Only faults so far
were a faulty throttle position pot. replaced under warranty and a leaking
inlet manifold gasket which I replaced - this looked as though it had been
assembled badly from new with a fixing bolt driven thro' the gasket, missing
the hole completely. Only thing we don't like is lack of power steering
which does exercise the arm muscles a bit too much at low speed!
Skoda OHV 4 cyl. 1289 cc all aluminium, fuel injected engine.
Good fuel economy - over 40 mpg.
Interior trim is now excellent and many parts are VW.
A good, fun to drive and roomy small car.
