      Hi All

      My suggestion is to look out for one which has clocked lesser mileage.
      Linea has grown into a Octavia NOW!
      Skoda Octavia 1.8 TSI (2020- )
      Fiat Linea (2010- )
      Hyundai Santro (2006-2010)

      I guess it was called the Laura in year 2012? And the laura is a better car to buy, compared to the gen 1 Octavia. The gen 1 cars are full of niggles these days, and it takes a lot of effort, time and money to keep them going flawlessly.

      If you are picking up a Laura past 65k kms, here are some of the maintenance items that need replacement before the car becomes reliable - timing chain/tensioner/guides, accessory belt and tensioner, water pump (primary and secondary), clutch and flywheel, ignition coils/plugs. You should also consider replacing the divertor valve, as in most cases it will be "leaking" boost.

      If you are indeed talking about the gen1 Octavia, then most of the car will need replacement before it becomes reliable.
      In pursuit of happiness, and happiness drives very fast.
