I am am thinking of a first car for my son. Was looking at Polo's but you appear to get more for your money with a Fabia.

I am thinking of an early MK2 1.2 or 1.4TDI 3cylinder - budget up to +/- Ł2000.

Is there anything I should look for or specifically check on these models? Do they have any 'common faults'?

Thanks in advance.
