I used to drive BMWs. MY last one was a 1996 520i estate, traded in with 102,000 miles on it, which is exactly the same mileage as my 1993 Skoda Octavia TDi has at present. The difference is that absolutely everything works on the Skoda whereas quite a lot of things (electric windows, computer ) didn't work on the BMW. At 100,000 miles the vanos valve adjuster packed in. No one would attempt to fix it and I had no option but to get a s/h engine installed !! The BMW had more boot space and the suspension was nicer than the Skoda and the four-stroke engine very smooth, but overall the Skoda is the better car. Also, check out the NCAP ratings and the Skoda is argubly the safer car.

We upgraded from a '03 Octavia diesel estate to an ex-dealership owned '09 Octavia Scout as we had been very pleased with the former but 2 young children were taking their toll of the interior, and strangely enough the Scout had most of the factory fitted options which I had previously told the dealer I would like!
At first we were delighted with the Scout, accepting the slightly poorer fuel economy as a fair trade for all of the extra gadgets and safety features.
Unfortunately since about 3 months after buying it it has been plagued with numerous dashboard warnings and messages to go directly to the service centre. At first the dealer we had bought the car from was very helpful but did not manage to solve the problem, eventually Skoda Assist replaced the exhaust gas pressure sensor, and everything appeared to have settled down and even the fuel economy seemed to improve.
However I was unimpressed when I had to get the car serviced after just over 9000 miles, it should be nearer 20000 and it was not due to it having been driven harshly.
After this service it's fuel economy did not seem as good, and the dashboard warnings are re-appearing, we are still waiting to get this resolved.
All in all I really want to like the Scout, it does everything I need it to and then some, I just wish that we could get these problems sorted out.
