    Had a 1.9 105bhp one that did 170000 miles. Fab car.

    Work pool cars are 1.6 TDi 105ggs, perfectly fine.
    Pleanty of grunt around town but it does run out of puff if you want to ‘make progress’ (as the knobber drivers say) on the motorway. You can get some well equipped cars for not a lot of money.

    Mk1 2004 130bhp here. Had it 6 years & it’s got 110K miles now. No problems at all since we’ve owned it.

    I get between 50-55mpg just about everywhere.

    Time is coming for a bigger family car, octavia seems to tick all the boxes but how do owners find them on a daily basis. Also what actual combined mpg do folk get from1.9 tdi both 105 and 130 bhp and also the newer 1.6 105 bhp versions?

    Anything to watch out for 2nd hand and anything else to consider as an alternative?

    Thanks

    Got a 55 plate 105ps 1.9 tdi – 80,000 miles. No problems. Drove a family of four, with all the camping gear and a roofbox, from Derby to Cornwall this summer and got 55mpg. Love the old 6 speed DSG autobox as well.

    Probably the best value for money car either of us have owned.

    I’ve got a 1.6 TDI 105 2010 Estate, love it. Really economical, there is some road noise and the rear suspension is very soft, so take care if towing or mounting bikes off the back.

    Other than that, it’s very well built, they’ve raided the VW parts bin carefully and there’s bags of space inside.

    I’d definitely get another one (probably the MK3 2.0 TDI, which is also £30 per year to tax)

    Bombproof!

    Mine is a 1999 model and the only repairs have been the usual wear and tear. I’ve had it seven years now and can see me driving it for a good few more.

    Can’t say it’s very exciting though. It gets used as a skip and is nicknamed the ‘manky-mobile’.

    You’re better off with an A4.
    It’s better all round.
    Just a nicer environment to be in when you’re driving

    Problem is finding them s/h. I hade an 04 estate – did over 140,000 miles in its (180,000 odd in total still doing over 50mpg and not using any oil). Excellent car – most niggles are easily dealt with yourself if you have the aptitude. Wanted another but could find a later s/h so bought a Passatt. Prefered the Octavia as too many pointless bells and whistles on the Passatt.
