          They might have had a slight reliability advantage when they adopted VW's newer platforms a bit later than some other brands. I recall SEAT having a bunch of issues in their new cars at some point, while Skoda was still making cars based on older stuff that probably had many of its issues solved by then.
          Or at least the diesel-based ones did. I'm still seeing discussions of used car disputes, mostly involving the infamous 1.4 TSI engine where every place that could possibly leak oil probably did so in some unit.
          It'll be interesting to see how things go in their newer cars.

      Are you fricking kidding me? This is exactly why I chose Superb over Passat. Only VW that has potential to top Superb or even Octavia is Arteon - and instead of developing this styling, VW is killing it.

          I've made 700k km with 3 different Skodas (2 Octavias, 1 Superb) in span of 24 years. Crushed one of them. Other than Skoda I had a Merc 300d, Toyota Corolla, Toyota Avensis, VW Golf, VW Passat, Audi TT and even Pontiac Transport (uncommon in Europe). Skodas aren't reliable for a poor man's car (they aren't cheaper than VW any more). They are reliable in general.

          From what I've heard about American VW, Skoda would be probably considered premium in comparison.

            Yup, they took Volkswagen, downgraded them and cut costs and had them assembled in Mexico for the U.S market, relying on the European "VW" badge as the selling point.

            They don't use rust protection, they still use torque converters in MODERN vws like the MK7 Golf and they stil come with ancient engines like the 1.8t and a naturally aspirated 1.6. In Europe they cut all that years ago and we only get DSGs, the 1.0, 1.5 hybrid, 2.0 TFSI and the 1.6 and 2.0 TDIs

        jk i'm american why would I know which countries drive on which side. I thought you were all rhd.

          The Irish (ROI) pay ridiculous taxes on cars, very rare to see something nice there. In Germany where I live that is no problem. Front engine corvettes are rare to see. I think I saw more C4s then any other front engine corvette in my life. C8s are fairly common here because they are a great value compared to the offerings from Porsche and AMG. I see them every week at this point.

            I read that they only sell 2000 c8s a year in europe. considering the EU is the same size as the us and we buy 25x as many, it's either not available or not in demand or both

          • 4 weeks ago

            Off course they are sold far less compared to the US. They don't carry status like a 911 and there is no dealer network which obviously complicates repairs.

            We are so cucked on this green island, the insane VRT, insurance and tax rates have a chokehold on the car community but also normies are fricking moronic here, the Netherlands also have high car owership prices and yet they have a richer car culture than us.

            Everytime I see a nice vehicle like an RS6, GTRs ,Mustang..etc 95% of the time its always on UK or NI yellow plates.

            I went to school for a year in Ireland and I have seen very few nice cars compared to what I see everyday in Germany. But I saw plenty of Japanese cars compared to Germany, which was pretty nice

            >But I saw plenty of Japanese cars compared to Germany, which was pretty nice

            Was it in the early 2000s? that was during the celtic tiger (economic boom), the JDM bubble of the 90s burst and you could import Skylines, Silvias, Glanza Vs..etc for cheap, Ireland is a RHD country so it worked perfectly. Used to see JDM gatherings on the motorways and country roads all the time, the cars were taxed based on engine displacement pre-2008 and cause Jap stuff was low displacement hooked up to turbochargers, it was viable to own a high performance japanese car.

            That all died out today though, those JDM boxes have been wrapped around poles and the remaining ones have been parked up in a garage somewhere in county Mayo. Today, thanks to Brexit, used car dealerships dropped the UK as a viable source of cars and have switched back to Japan but only import economy cars like the Yaris, March, Serena, Aqua..etc, they've also started importing JDM market German cars such as Golf GTIs, BMW 3 series, they are cheaper to buy from Japan, come in almost brand new condition with low mileage compared to UK imports and have all the bells and whistles as standard, Irish and UK specs tend to be base models or just a few options ticked.

            This is also a thing in Germany. Some japanese people like to import LHD Mercedes and the likes which means that we can reimport them and are able to get very well taken care of examples of the top AMG models (S63, E63 etc.)

            Pretty sure its like importing any other car from Japan to the EU, the registration & tax rates vary from country to country though.

            The hardest bit is probably doing your homework on the particular car and making sure you aren't getting fleeced (Japs aren't as perfect as weebs claim to be), ideally for something like an AMG, you could fly to Japan and see it in person but its up to you

            Well I did not personally import it, but have a friend in a dealership that takes in mainly amg and highly spec'd SL's. But even though the chances are it's better taken care of then a stateside example, there is of course no guarantee. Mine was a 1 owner that had driven it 60k miles. So it had not been sitting. (It's a 2010). And no wear to be found anywhere. I would not buy something sight unseen just because it is from japan though.

            Yeah LHD German cars especially Mercs were a status symbol amongst Japanese criminals and connected people then they got sold to actual enthusiasts who kept them in mint condition.

            >For some reason people all over Ireland went crazy for the Hyundai Tucson.
            >I can't explain it.

            Every country has that one npc car that everyone buys, for Americans I believe its the RAV4 or Camry. I think Hyundai offered long warranties and the best deals so they won over the average joe, they were pretty affordable brand new compared to competitors and are reliable. Koreans make good diesels unlike Japs, see the Lexus IS220d and Mazda 2.2 diesels (worse than the dreaded BMW N47, its actually an okay engine but having the timing chain replaced was a must or you risk throwing the car away)

      2011 fabia 1.2htp 2nd owner here
      i dont feel anything when i drive it, only mild annoyance when ecu delays my blips
      sits in garage most of the time, does a short city run every other week or a longer trip few times a year
      the ecu has some quirks, drops a code once in a while, probably something to do with exhaust sensors
      had a piston explode in the past because first owner was running it through international routes at highway speed, works fine with a new one as long as i don't overheat it
      the feature i like the most is the windshield wiper speed selector, it has a setting for pretty much every single rain intensity
