My Skoda Favorit‘s year

Seen no mention of on here so thought I would my experience of my first car at 1 year on.

My car is a 94 Favorit GLXIe estate (e high compression, 67bhp It came with 13 alloys, spoiler and a front splitter as Got given it as otherwise it was off to the scrap. needed centre exhaust exhaust support, one brake and handbrake adjustment.

Have taken to servicing it and it is a very easy car to work on loads of engine bay space. thing that’s obviously wrong is a wheel bearing to have gone but managed to those myself for Ј10 all in. On long if I drive like an … I get 39mpg (tested with loaded car), if more and at 60mph I can get 45mpg.

Don’t think those are too bad myself.

Only other I have had are sunroof leak and a into the boot. Sunroof has happened twice and managed to it each time. As for the boot I managed to slow it down but stay perfectly dry after a downpour. Also the headlights and have weird problems.

Occasionally the sidelight indicator on the is off and the rear offside light is and sometimes the headlight indicator is off and the dipped headlight is off and sometimes are off. A tap on the fusebox generally them all on properly and luckily it happen all that often and never been stranded in the

It currently has 111k miles but the doesn’t always advance and done many 200 odd mile with the clock not advancing, so it is a few more miles than Suppose I should get around to it with the spare clock I I doubt anyone will me of clocking as chances are this car is off to the anyway once I’m with it.

I don’t think it’s a bad car at I know most people of all the Skoda jokes and daren’t anything with that but it has definitely been everything a car be. And I think my first experience of has been Bangernomic-tastic!

Interesting facts I have about the car itself. The car is styled by (a famous car designer apparently), the geometry is tuned by Porsche, and the mounts are designed by Porsche. The Favorit won outright the FIA World cup in the 2 litre category (but if I the results correctly, not because of lap times, but because they broke down and only once whereas all the other came worse off in that

For anyone else considering a Skoda, the Felicia (based on the is probably a better buy as it is newer, but can be had for next to nothing.
