What's the used Skoda Roomster estate like?

The quirky Roomster is an unusual reworking of the MPV formula, but it's best thought of as a spacious small family car. It has two full size seats in the back, with a slimmer seat in the middle. All three can be reclined, folded forward or removed completely to turn the Roomster into a quasi-van. The middle seat can also be removed separately to give more shoulder-room for those in the back. In addition, the boot is a decent size and shape,

The Roomster is quite good to drive, with light steering and a tight turning circle - making it ideal for urban streets. On faster roads the ride can be a little wallowy, but it absorbs bumps well and doesn't lean excessively through corners. Wind and road noise are kept in check most of the time, but can be heard at higher speeds.

Skoda have worked hard to build a reputation for quality, and the Roomster feels part of the family. The cabin has a solid finish with a durable feel.
