Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Skoda Fabia estate?
The Fabia estate is a well built car, so most of your concerns will surround whether the interior is clean and tidy. Also check that the alloy wheels, if specified, haven’t suffered any kerb damage. Its most likely use will have been as a town car, so inspect the bodywork for minor scuffs.
Owners reported problems with the seven-speed DSG automatic gearboxes in earlier cars – they can be jerky when shifting. Others found it difficult to use the Mirrorlink system on the car’s infotainment system.
