Dom Pereira (Guest)'s review on Skoda Octavia Diesel TDI Turbo
Year of Manufacture : 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 1500
- Pros: Great Transportation car, for a wagon very roomy
- Cons: unknown surprises, when least expected.
I rented this car while on vacation in Europe, I liked this car for the fact that it was a diesel and a roomy S/W. There were a couple things that took me by surprise and possibly not being familiar with the car. 1= possibly a safety feature, when in neutral the engine stops then have to press clutch to keep it running. 2= I had to back up on an incline and then when shifted to first or any other gear and released the clutch it would not come out of reverse, had to play with shifter and re-start engine. My guess is that transmission is Computer Controlled, that can be frustrated and embarrassing when in traffic conditions . I am a car tech for over 30 years and never experienced anything like it.
