    My car

    Had a long drive in one of these today and can honestly say, after driving the latest Corsa, Yaris, Fiesta, Clio and Polo, the Skoda beats them all out of sight.

    Great performance, excellent build quality - certainly puts the VW Polo to shame, and in the beautiful sprint yellow looks stunning.

    Neat styling, great equipment levels and superior ride all add to the Skodas appeal. Needless to say, I've placed an order.

    My car

    Further to my earlier posting, I could not live with the hard ride, and have now sold the car-back to the Dealer. Sorry, Skoda- I wish you well, and the old Fabia was brilliant, as is the rest of the range, but you and the new Fabia have moved away from my need for economical, comfortable motoring.No doubt the hard ride(when the roads in the UK are getting worse) will appeal to some, but not me. I am now looking for a comparable car with sensible suspension, and not those rediculous alloya and low-profile tyres! Its proving difficult.

    My car

    My complaint with this car is the-to me- excessively hard suspension. I never had any complaint with the earlier model which carried me in relative small-car comfort for 25000 miles with exceptional economy, and with enough power to pull a caravan. i thought that moving up to the new model would offer the same - but the ride is bumpy and uncomfortable. Does anyone out there with the same model agree? I am seriously considering disposing of it after only 3 months! Barry Martin Bolton

    My car

    The new Skoda Fabia, the "largest" of all small cars, is one of the better things that has happened to men lately. A friend owns one and it's such a lovely-easy-fun car to drive. It makes those basic BMW drivers look very weak indeed on the motorway - and I am not kidding!

    Being tailgated too, is no longer a problem.

    Searing performance when its needed, it's well suited for a drive in the city as well as a cross-country trip.

    The new model again represents progress, in particular in the traditional values of the Skoda brand – spaciousness and value for money.

    The serial accessories for this cleverly designed compact car include four airbags, ABS and electrical-hydraulic power steering.
