Fully-independent front suspension is fitted, with the components attached to a subframe assembly; the rear suspension is semiindependent, with a torsion beam and trailing arms.

A wide range of standard and optional equipment is available within the model range to suit most tastes, including anti-lock braking, traction control and air conditioning.
For the home mechanic, Skoda Fabia models are straightforward vehicles to maintain, and most of the items requiring frequent attention are easily accessible.
Your Skoda Fabia Manual
The aim of this manual is to help you get the best value from your vehicle. It can do so in several ways. It can help you decide what work must be done (even should you choose to get it done by a garage). It will also provide information on routine maintenance and servicing, and give a logical course of action and diagnosis when random faults occur. However, it is hoped that you will use the manual by tackling the work yourself. On simpler jobs it may even be quicker than booking the car into a garage and going there twice, to leave and collect it. Perhaps most important, a lot of money can be saved by avoiding the costs a garage must charge to cover its labour and overheads.
The manual has drawings and descriptions to show the function of the various components so that their layout can be understood. Tasks are described and photographed in a clear step-by-step sequence.
