    Skoda Fabia warning please? 12th Sep 08 at 11:04 AM
    Hi to cut a long story short after 4 years of being ripped of buying dodgy cars that cost a fortune to run we took the plunge and decided to buy new. We took out a loan and purchased a fabia estate (auto) after checking various sites for reliablity etc. The car is a 06 plate now and has had all its services etc. It only has 8600 on the clock. Got in it yesterday and a warning light came on EPC (fault light) so I booked it in for monday to get it checked.Then this morning another light came on-control system for exhaust gases. I am now starting to panick as this sounds expensive! It is still under warranty but that excludes the catalytic converter (which may be the problem?).
    Would this be classed as not fit for purpose with such low milage and not fair wear and tear...I really cannot afford a big bill!
    Sorry for such a long post but any advice would be welcome thanks.
    Its the fabia 1.4 16v ambiente automatic estate btw
