    Spares for all Skoda cars are expensive.

    Please visit the service center and check prices for common spare parts such as:

    a) Wing Mirrors
    b) Fender (bumper) repair cost - front and rear
    c) Clutch plates
    d) Brake pads
    e) Standard Service cost

    If this is a second hand car, insist on all maintenance and repair bills and history. Check for accident damage too.

    Yesterday I heard from VW employee that they are going to mfgr. 80,000 Fabia in Pune plant and by end of this year they are going for mostly all models of Skoda ( All Indian Versions)

    OK. But do insist on the current spares and maintenance costs.

    Skoda Fabia is the small car from the Skoda car family. The looks are general and not so appealing.

    I bought a Skoda fabia a few months ago but mine is a diesel top model and it cost me 7.25lakh on road and I have got "no" complaints. breaks with abs rock and I did 170kms per hours three days ago on GT road on my way back from Chandigarh.. Beats the crap out of other cars on road in 3rd and 4th gear as well and at 170 it wasn't all that jumpy either although its a pretty light car for doing those kind of speeds. It makes a good city car and is alright for a bit longer journey as well. I normally use it for near by trips to shops and all...

    I confirm, it's a really good car produced by Volkswagen AG. Nothing more to say

    Skoda is a Czech subsidiary of VW. So can't claim that it it is manufactured by VW. It would be like saying that Indica is manufactured by Jaguar. But you are right - it is a very nice car albeit expensive in the segment.

    Yes it is not strictly manufactured by VW, but if I'm not wrong, a lot of Skoda uses VW motors/accessories.

    I have heard there is some problem with Skoda car, something to do with the lights being on when starting the car, is that correct?

    It is not a defect or problem, that is how it is meant to be.

    Doesn't this use up the battery more than it actually should? Never heard of any car which has this automated feature!

    Almost all high end cars do these days. The battery in Skoda Fabia does not last very long thanks to the cooling fan that keeps running even after you take the keys out. It runs for a while some times when the engine is hot especially in summers I have seen the fan running for over a minute or so and that obviously drains the battery. Dont expect the battery to last more then a year and a half to two years with regular usage.
