Is worth buying based on skoda's reputation? After a lot of thinking I think yes! The product is way to good and I still find it great VFM.
But don't take my word for it, get a test drive then we'll see how you resist

After reading that review, I can confidently say that the Altis is ruled out. The steering is a toy and if you thought that the NHC had a light steering this one is even lighter with lesser feedback.
The Altis is taller than the Cedia and rolls heavily through a sweeping bend. Understeer is ok but solid roll.
BTW, Kiran is there for a long time and he knows his stuff on all the Mitsu products quite well.

The ride is typical japenese setup which has been softened up leading to not so great highspeed stabiity. Longwave bumps absorption is not so great either.
The Engine has good low and midrange but lacks the sporty topend of the honda plus spoils the experience by sounding harsh at higher revs.
Overall a good family car which is not involving to drive.

@Nikhil: Avoid a used Benz! They become ridiculously expensive to maintain and not at all worth the price.
I would suggest looking at the Civic, Cedia, wait for the Cruze.
If you want a used car, look at a used A4.
