The Skoda Fabia appeared at the end of 1999. It was available with a 1.0-litre engine, a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder engine in two states of tune, and a 1.4 litre 4-cylinder, also in two states of tune. The diesels were a 1.4-litre 3-cylinder and 1.9-litre 4-cylinder, which was available with and without a turbocharger. Bodystyles were a 5-door hatchback, 4-door saloon and 5-door estate. Fully independent front suspension was fitted, with the components attached to a subframe assembly; the rear suspension was semi-independent, with a torsion beam and trailing arms. A wide range of standard and optional equipment included anti-lock braking, traction control and air-conditioning. For the home mechanic, the Skoda Fabia is straightforward to maintain. At Haynes, we have an extensive range of Skoda repair manuals and online maintenance procedures available for professional mechanics and DIY car enthusiasts. Our Skoda Fabia repair manuals are here to help you through every stage of servicing or fixing your car.
