Re: School Run Kodiaq - Diesel/Petrol

You don't say where you are, but assume you in U.K. Although the diesel scare is basically unfounded it has not precluded a dramatic drop in residuals for dervs. Even finance and PCP companies have started going away from 'oil burners' and some people have been left with a much larger final payment...

Re: Child seat in Kodaiq

I'd consider an isofix for the front as two would fit next to a car seat better than one inbetween two.
Another consideration is how much of the boot do you need? Just one of the rear seats could be used if it works for you and it would still leave a decent space for luggage.

Re: Is The Kodiaq Really Suitable For The UK Market ???

"Sounds like you're spending too much time fiddling with the infotainment screen instead of driving. Why do you need to be constantly fiddling with it?" You can so the majority of things through the steering wheel." Actually no, only the volume controls, and they generally remain constant. If you a...

Re: Is The Kodiaq Really Suitable For The UK Market ???

I have a 2018 Edition with a 'touch only', 'no controls' infotainment system. Its not that the internal space is 150mm lower than the Yeti, or it has a letterbox of a boot lid, or that the emergency tools are hidden underneath the rear of seven seats with access only through a 30 degree slot, or ev...

Re: Start/stop Bullsh*it?

Had CVT recently on a Toyota Prius+ 7 seater, and hated it (car was good just the Auto box was terrible) ....slow, noisy and terrible acceleration if it wasn't in 'sport' mode....even then it struggled up hills in Devon!! Must admit I'm going off the stop/start system too, as it always turns itself...

Re: Paint chip

Having had some dozy old git reverse into my 2 week old car at the Chunnel terminal at the weekend I'd be interested to hear what people reply to this. Luckily I only have some paint missing on the rear bumper, so I'm thinking I'll talk to Dent Devils when I return home. My brother in law used them...

Re: Paint chip

I have a wee paint chip on my bonnet. What's the best solution for a DIY fix? Needless to say, I didn't go for the full paintwork insurance thingy when I bought the car. But as it is on PCP, I am obliged to take care of this before it gets bad. As it says in my sig; my bodywork is Quartz Grey. Best...

Re: Skoda Update Download MD5SUM

Is there a quick check, to see if you need it? Does the 20 odd gig file update everything that the dealer would update...or do you still need to take the car into the dealer for 'other' updates? I am not sure if the dealer installs these Columbus updates as part of the service. Perhaps others can s...

Pure clickbait with lots of inaccuracies and moaning. Love it how he complains about CVT gearboxes affecting the stop start cycle and making them unrefined.
CVT. Who still uses those things?
Apart from Honda, Nissan, and Toyota?
