Skoda Fabia 2017: Would it make a good first car?

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Aug 2020

I think that a Kia Rio would be an excellent choice as a first car. Especially since a Rio built in the time frame you’re looking at will still have a big chunk of its factory warranty left to run. The Kia seven-year/unlimited kilometre warranty is the best around, really, and provided the car you buy has a complete service record, that warranty will be real peace of mind.

Also, the Rio is known to be a good, solid car that has a good reputation for reliability and durability. The Skoda Fabia, meantime, suffers from the poor reputation of is dual-clutch transmission. The Fabia is also a bit of an orphan in Australia, meaning that it’s largely overlooked by buyers. That means it will potentially be more difficult to unload when you daughter looks to upgrade her car in a few years.

Gearbox problems with a 2017 Skoda Fabia

Answered by CarsGuide 30 Mar 2018

It’s still under Skoda’s new car warranty, so they are responsible for fixing it. You should continue to attempt to deal with the company to get it fixed. If you feel that Skoda is not taking the appropriate action than take them to the ACCC and try and get something happening that way.
