I have just taked my 2017 190 DSG, in for MOT & 3rd service, its milage is 10768, being the 3rd year i was under the impression it wasa due for the major service, but the main dealer says NO, next year.

Re: Covid 19

Thanks for finding this link, to explain the workings of the virus, my family & I were in Spain a month ago, almost certain we have had a mild dose of the virus, for we had all the symptom's, but now ok. but are observing the self isolation.

Re: Fail to start?

I think we are getting off the beaten track here, with the Red Button use, I took my Kodiaq 190 Edition to the main agents, to have a fuel sensor unit fitted, this was done on the warranty as pervious stated. Only now time will tell if that's the cause of the initial problem, but because of the Viru...

Re: Factory tow-bar retrofit

The Kodiaq I have came with the electric tow ball fitted, but because of the mechanics for it to operate, take extra room, the spare wheel insert, will only take the small biscuit spare wheel. OK if your not towing, but as I pull the caravan, I bought a full size spare wheel, which takes a lot of sp...

Re: Fail to start?

I think their is a plus side to the Red button issue, you were right only for emergencies, you get so used to the engine starting at the press of a button, I did panic a bit [ Don't Panic Mr Wilson ] I only pressed it for a second maybe. However what struck me , If you are in a accident, and roll th...

Re: Fail to start?

There is a plus side to all of the chain of events, at least if you are under a garage canopy, obviously the signal will not transmit, how will you go on, if the vehicle has flipped over, or on its side? My wife as yet is doing well, but we have to be wary of certain factors, thank for your comment....

Re: Fail to start?

Thank for the Red button lecture, who are you to judge whether my problem was not an emergency! My wife was with me at the time, due to having cancer, in her throat she has no voice, and breaths through a tracky where her Adams apple should be. So to me being stuck in a fuel station for a indetermin...

Re: Fail to start?

While at the garage with the starting problem, I though I would press the red emergency button on the head lining, thinking that Skoda would get InTouch, as the dealership is about a mile from the garage, No such luck, as I was under the petrol station canopy, another lesson learnt ? When I get time...

Re: Panoramic sunroof

I have the panoramic roof, I didn't choose it, it just came with the vehicle, To honest I hardly ever use it,, its very rare it gets hot enough, or when open, I end up with a stiff neck, all the rest of the time, its raining.

Fail to start?

;) I am curious to see if any one has experience the same problem. Last Saturday I called at my local Morrisons super market to fill up with diesel , the pumps are under cover. I came to start the engine, it turned over, but didn't fire, its automatic, so made sure it was in park passion , foot on b...
