Opinions about Skoda Octavia
We have booked a Skoda Octavia and the car will be delivered this weekend. I have been told by couple of my friends that even at minor impacts the airbags of the cars blow up and then in order to replace them I need to get the entire dash board replaced which again is very expensive. I want to know from all the skoda owners out there whether this is true. This thought has disturbed me a lot.
And any other suggestion guys to keep my car up and running for years!!!!!!

there are sensors which can sense the intensity of the impact.
in simplest words, it won't come up until the impact is of enough intensity, where you would have crashed your head/chest against the steering, if you were not wearing seatbelts!
moreover, never ever let the airbags come up when you are not wearing the seatbelts! they may kill you instantly! airbags works best with the seatbelts.
but be assured that you won't feel the need to take car to the service station everyday!
by the way, which Octavia you booked?
is it the RS Petrol or Rider or the evergreen 1.9TDi ??
all are very good.
but still, i am quite curious to know.
