Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Skoda Fabia Owner Comments

problem #1

(reported on)


  • 12,800 miles


Since we bought our Skoda Fabia one year ago (less than 13000 miles) we've had the following problems:

Rear speaker not working (not connected up when replaced) Faulty temperature gauge causing car to cut out. Broken central blower vent. Tape stuck in cassette (fascia chipped on return from repairers) Blown cylinder head gasket. Leaking water pump x 2. Leaking sump X 2 (sump had to be replaced) Jammed nearside electric window.

Response by Skoda Customer Services - tough - you're getting nothing from us!!

Could you warn your readers that if they're thinking of buying a Skoda, they could be paying a lot of money for the privilege of continually taking the vehicle back to the garage for repairs, not to mention being brushed off by SkodaAuto Customer Services - they wouldn't even offer us anything for cleaning all the oil spots off our drive - my 15 year old Mazda gets through less oil!!
