The Skoda Octavia is probably one of the best options in the D-segment sedan game where it rivals the likes of the Toyota Corolla Altis, Honda Civic and the Hyundai Elantra. The stylish sedan is known for its solid built quality, driving pleasure, powerful engine options, space and comfort along with the great cabin equipped with a decent level of kit.

What should I know before buying a used Octavia and what are the risks involved?
Well, the Skoda Octavia is a pretty brilliant car in its own right and has a loyal fan following behind it too. On the downside though, Skoda’s aftersales service is nothing to write home about and the Czech manufacturer has been always ridiculed for the same in India. Also, the Octavia has a poor resale value than some of its rivals but that is not much of an issue since you will actually be benefitted due to the same.
Another thing to check is if there is any water/flood damage in the car. Before laying down your money, have a skilled technician inspect the car completely. This will chuck out any hidden issue the car is having before you and the price can be further negotiated based on the same.
