Interesting name

Watching an episode of New Tricks. An Indian character is introduced named Pushkar. One of the characters says to him "That's an interesting name.". He replies, "It's Hindi for Skoda.".

Where do these 60 year old clichés come from? Skoda is the most reliable VW owned brand, and the most reliable German branded vehicle. Some people *roll eyes*

I think the episode was from 2005. Not sure that makes any difference. Here it should probably be the Yugo.

This 1999 example runs perfectly after 432,000 miles, there's a reason why they make popular taxis, but haters gonna hate and all that haha.

I don't know what they are but I'd like to have a London taxi. I just think they are kind of neat somehow. That engine teardown was impressive though. And we had a truck with a Caterpillar engine that failed at 833k miles. Caterpillar refused to honor their extended warranty even after the technician, with 10 years at the dealer, said it was the cleanest and best maintained engine he'd ever seen. Life lesson, never have anything to do with Caterpillar.

Old or new? The old ones are iconic, the new ones inherited the character of the old one, but are electric power not diesel, and they have a petrol generator like a BMW i3. They also do a van version now too. They always were and still are very expensive vehicles to buy at £55000+, but that was 5 years ago when the new model was launched.

Here's a link with downloadable brochures etc.

In between old, probably 20 or a bit more years maybe. I remember seeing them in a cash cab type program and liking them. Or I've hallucinated the whole thing.

The problems start when you buy one with 500,000 city miles!

Yes, it would probably need a major overhaul/restore and then be just a fun now and then driver.
