We rented a Skoda Octavia 2 weeks ago. We had an estate car/mini van booked, but they offered us the Skoda instead, a bit cheaper, plus enormous boot which is what we wanted the other car for, us being 4 folks with cases etc. First time with a Skoda and we've been well pleased with it, very zippy, diesel engine, great mileage etc. But it took a while to get used to one feature, which was disconcerting the first time it happened. When you stop in traffic etc, the engine cuts out, and lift your foot off the brake and the starter motor kicks in and restarts the engine. Not sure of the advantage to this, and surely owners get through starter motors? We take our friends to the airport today and trade in the car for something smaller, but have done over 2500 km in the Skoda and enjoyed it. 2 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
