A FATHER’S more than a decade-old obsession with a well-known make of car has now turned into a family fascination.

Graeme Hughes from Winchester has purchased 12 cars from Skoda Winchester since 2006, having previously been an Audi driver for years. 

He always chooses the model, his wife chooses the colour - they get a different colour each time but have owned three Octavia models, Graeme’s favourite. 

But the love of Skoda’s has not stopped with Graeme as his two adult sons have recently upgraded their cars with the St Cross Road dealership – one son even purchased his new car from abroad over the phone, without even seeing it..

While one of his son’s has gone for the same Fabia model each time but a different colour, the other son has had different models in different colours, his choices including the Rapid and Kodiaq. 

Despite driving many of the manufacturer’s models Graeme has that his favourite is the Skoda Octavia.

Graeme said that the car is value for money, proven good performance, is a great family car and has a high standard of workmanship and comfort.
