 2015 Skoda Octavia RS 162 TSI owner review

Matt purchased this Skoda Octavia used for $23,990 (including all on-road costs) in 2020. Matt would buy this car again because: "It's all the car you could ever need, and most of the car you could ever want. Fun, fast, frugal, safe, and (touch wood), reliable, I'd buy another in a heartbeat. Very much the thinking person's Golf GTI in my books!"
