So I'm going to be getting a car via my work's car salary sacrifice scheme and the two I can afford that are the right size (big enough for 2 growing boys plus room for a ton of camping crap equipment) are the Nissan Note diesel estate or the Skoda Fabia diesel estate.

Does anyone have any experience of either/both as I haven't driven either and need to get one of them ordered asap as our old car has died...

I've had a skoda Fabia before though not an estate. Haven't had a Note, but used to have a Nissan micra and both Nissan and skoda are decent makes. I test drove a Note when I got my last car and liked it but got a better deal on a Ford Fusion which I also liked.

I think you need to test drive both and see which one you like best, sometimes just driving position/seat comfort is what makes a difference, or just better/handier cubby holes/storage in the car might make a difference.

Thanks. I did have a look at a friend's Nissan Note and really liked the dashboard and look and feel of the car, but the boot space seemed really small- smaller than the boot of my current car - Peugeot 306, which I've had for years and love, but sadly the garage can no longer revive it...

Will try and get to see a Skoda Fabia estate tomorrow before going ahead.

I bought a fabia estate when ds was twelve weeks old. He's six and a half now. its a great car very practical loads of boot space.

thanks - what's the legroom like in the back of the Skoda? Apparently the Nissan Note is great for legroom and our boys do seem to be growing like weeds at the moment... hmm

I think I want the Skoda though - for no good reason other than I've perversely always wanted one and it's £20 a month less on the payments grin
