    Octavia ii 1.9Tdi Laurin & Klement DSG

    For sale my much loved 55 plate Octavia.

    119,000 miles

    Plus
    FSH including the all-important gearbox oil change every 40k. I have always bought 507 grade for my local trusted mechanic

    Drives beautifully and a fantastically reliable car, nicely run in for you. These things aren't driven by taxi drivers all over Europe for nothing!

    Vast majority of miles covered on motorway/autoroute

    Loads of receipts from my ownership time (from 2015 and 40k)

    Recent items include new battery and alternator

    Full L&K trim including full black leather, satnav, 6 CD changer, electric front seat etc.

    Lovely comfortable interior

    Re-mapped by Shark Performance to 140bhp (similar performance to the equivalent 2.0 but with the bomb-proof 1.9 unit)

    MOT to July 2020

    Minus
    Needs servicing in 1000 miles which must include DSG oil change

    Small amount of rust on OSR wheel arch (evidence of a repair here before my time)

    Small blemishes to paintwork here and there commensurate with a 14 year old car coming up to 120k

    Rear wiper has died


    Car is in mid Sussex (near Haywards Heath) and is available from November


    £1000 (which is what WBAC.com are offering but I would rather it went to someone on here who would enjoy it)

    Absolute bargain - just run in. DSG service is £179 fixed price at Skoda, the car will thank you for it.

    Full disclosure; I drive a 168k 2.0tdi DSG L & K estate and I love it. The 1.9 is far the superior engine.

    Good luck with the sale.

    it is for me, most of my cars have barely 20k on when I sell them on. Looks nice and clean though, have a bump.

    I love my Octavia ii 1.9Td Ambiente and it's coming up to 170k miles.I bought it when it was three tears old in 2010 with 80k and as far as I know it's still on it's original exhaust system and clutch. It still pull almost, probably as strongly now as when I bought it. Great cars.

    I don't think I've had a more comfortable ride, but my other choices aren't about wafting! VX220, 130i, Monaro, Impreza!

    I know what you mean but for it's age and engine type it is low for a 14 year old car.

    The 1.9 TDI PD engine will easily do 250k if it has had oil changes at less than every 10K.

    It's the electrical bits that usually fail first.

    An 800,000 km example on you tube.
