Clocked 10,000 km on my Skoda Octavia: 6-month update

In real-world driving conditions, I’ve been getting similar fuel efficiency figures as my VW Polo GT TSI.

BHPian GeeTee TSI recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Recently crossed the 10K milestone in 6 months of ownership.

On this occasion, I decided to get an original double-sided boot mat for the Octavia (Part number 5E6 061 163). TAFE Access has been helpful in ordering this for me at my request (product is on backorder and I will share some pictures once received).

One thing which is reassuring (in hindsight) is that the GC hasn’t played spoilsport in diverse load and surface conditions, especially since I was sceptical of the same. I do look forward to some updates to the infotainment system software as it has behaved in an erratic manner on some occasions.

It has been a very confidence-inspiring driving experience whether it is power on tap, manoeuvrability in tight spaces or the ride quality. The cherry on the cake being that I have been getting similar FE figures as my earlier GT TSI in real-world driving.

Here’s what BHPian mah45 had to say about the matter:

Great to see this.

Did you get any ceramic coating or PPF after delivery?

The colour I have booked is the same, and one thing that bothers me is the high maintenance for this colour.

And great to see the GC has not been an issue, our roads have become very bad even just outside our apartment now, and so this is re-assuring.
