Škoda is a Czech car Company that started with bicycles in the late 1800s and added motors and wheels to become a car company by the 1920s. A government nationalization and a couple of World Wars later, Škoda was sold to Volkswagen in the early 1990s.
Prior to VW ownership, Škodas compared well against Eastern-Bloc competitors such as Lada and Yugo. However, Škodas had a reputation for old designs and unreliability in contrast to many of the more expensive Western European marques. After full integration with Volkswagen, Škodas have sold very well due to their VW platform sharing and strong value proposition.
The Škoda Octavia saloon and estate continues to be a perennial best-seller for the brand. Other popular Škodas include the Škoda Fabia, Rapid, Superb and Yeti.
“I LOVE YOUR SITE!!!!!!! This is so much easier to navigate and understand than many of the others that I've tried to use to find how to change my air filter. The videos ROCK! And as a girl getting the step by step visualy is very handy because there are many parts whose names I did not know and would not be able to find if I were just reading instructions. Thanks so much for putting this together. ”
