Welcome to another famous Select Cars Part Exchange Auction for:

2004 54 Reg Skoda Octavia 1.9 TDi Elegance 5dr Manual Diesel 53.3mpg combined


Taken in part exchange from a local private Gentleman, this New Shape Diesel Octavia represents an absolute bargain - in fact, it would certainly look like a £5000 motor car on your drive!

The car has a lovely specification. When seated in the car, you have a comfy centre armrest, twin climate control for differing temperatures on each side of the car, cruise control, all four electric windows, and auto lights that flick on when you go through shady wooded areas. The economy is amazing, regularly achieving 55mpg on the trip computer. The official listed average mpg is 53.3mpg giving a range of 645 miles on a tank of fuel. Road tax is cheap too - at just £120/yr. Tax 'til End of October 2012 is included in the sale.

The metallic paintwork is really very good for a high mileage car with just minor chips,scratches and dints. As for the bad bits - the car drives well for the mileage, but you'll have to put up with the clutch pedal getting stuck half way up sometimes, which a friend thinks maybe the clutch master cylinder - not a big job. Also, there is a hum from one of the wheel bearings, so that needs doing - but apart from that, and a split in the drivers door card, it's a really smart looking family hatchback for little money. Whilst a private man part exchanged the vehicle, it was probably a taxi in previous years - but a very well maintained one, just look at this history:

So the cambelt kit is not due until 15/11/2014 or 205149 miles (whichever comes first)

You can come a view the car by appointment on 01872 464413 - any test or trial is welcome. Because the mileage falls outside of our 'AA Warranty scheme', the rules of this auction are that the car is sold as seen without warranty.

£100 depost to be paid within 12hrs of auction end - and car to be collected within 3 days. You are bidding to buy - not view.
