Design faults are too numerous to mention.
Lights flicker when using the power steering. Numerous faults codes thrown up for no apparent reason. Poor headlights. Footwells fill with water due to bad sealent used on the window carriers. Some models have to have the battery tray removed to check power steering fluid level. Akin to being in a bath tub on a high sea when using roundabouts.
Plenum chamber overflows with rain water if not cleared of debris, this then leaks into the heater chamber and floods front footwells. The most severe fault is the short delay when pushing the accelerator pedal down and the time it takes to communicate with the electronic throttle control valve, not an ideal situation when pulling out of a side road with approaching traffic. Rear console bushes are prone to early failure.

I have owned a Fabia 16 valve comfort for 10 years Last years annual service bill totaled almost £800 which was for 1, front suspension bushes renewal, 2, cam belt replacement 3 temp sensor etc. renewal, 4 annual service . This was the first big bill. Other than that, nothing has gone wrong. I am very satisfied with the car and would highly recommend Skoda. The Fabia is a fabulous car.
