Re: New to Skoda

After further deliberation, I placed an order for the 7-seat version. I hope it's as good as many postings claim. We love our new 7-seater Kodiaq! Most of the time it's in 5-seat mode with a huge boot, but when we need the extra couple of seats, it's great to have them. I'm sure you'll be happy wit...

Re: Speedometer accuracy

Very interesting, Colin, I was not aware that this was done deliberately. I looked online a bit and found the following references on the topic, if anyone besides me is interested! JR "Most speedometers have tolerances of some ±10%, mainly due to variations in tire diameter. Sources of error due to ...

Speedometer accuracy

Hi all, At highway speeds, my MY19 Kodiaq's speedometer consistently shows that I am driving 5-6 km/h faster than what Waze is showing me.

Re: Settings question: Ambient lighting settings

I also read a lot about the car before buying it. :) So, I spent some time playing with these settings (which are NOT explained well in the manual), but I couldn't figure out how to customize anything. It seems that there are hard-coded colors for each driving mode (e.g., green for Eco, white for No...

Re: Settings question: Ambient lighting settings

Thanks wokwon, this had remained a mystery until now. :) So, is the idea that when I am in, for example, Sport driving mode and I change the ambient color to red, then it will always turn red when I switch into Sport mode? (Of course, with the setting at Automatic.) And if I change the color to blue...

Re: Wing mirror dropping in reverse

Unfortunately, I need to revive this thread... I finally got around to activating this feature and setting it as per the instructions. It works reliably: when I go into reverse (with the mirror knob set to the passenger side), the mirror tilts down to the set position to show me the kerb. HOWEVER, i...

Re: Phone Charging

Did they say why they discontinued it? Is there any problem with the existing one we should know about? I only picked up my 2019 Kodiaq around a month ago.
Thanks,
JR

Re: USB jack too tight!

Never heard of a 220V socket in a car! Is that single phase AC I wonder?
This is what is says in the manual:
