Emil Škoda formed his first factory in 1869. Over the years the company became a vast engineering and munitions conglomerate. Its history reflects the political and social landscape of the former ‘Eastern Block’ and pre-war Europe. The Czech based Škoda Works division started to produce motorcycles, very similar to Honda, and progressed into car production. With the fall of communism, Volkswagen bought up Škoda and succeeded in turning around the company from an automotive laughing stock to one of the most highly rated brands in the world. Škoda won a number of National Car Awards voted by WeLoveAnyCar.com car reviewers.
WeLoveAnyCar.com has 155 Škoda car reviews and their average rating is 4.5. For more about Škoda follow this link – an interesting article on the Škoda phenomenon: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/columnists/
