Re: New kodiaq. Engine choice

I hope you didn't pay for front and rear sensors and the colour maxi-dot. They are all standard for the SE-L spec. Not sure about the space saver wheel. I got one and never asked for one on either SE-L, current or previous. But the official website states "Tyre repair kit and compressor", so probabl...

Re: windshield is cracked on Day3

How can it not be improper installation or a fault in the manufacture? If it started from a stone chip, I can see how Skoda can defend that. Bad things happen and Skoda cannot control flying debris. But a crack starting from the edge has got to be shear force or a fault in the windscreen itself. You...

Re: Model Year 21 Changes

Was there any exterior changes made for 2021? The only exterior change that springs to mind is the Skoda badge on the tailgate being replaced with the word "Skoda". I am not even sure if that is a MY21 change or if it happened before that, but if you come from a MY17 that'll be the only significant...

So why are you bothering about your key?
Simple reason; to disable KESSY.
I have been quite vocal about KESSY these last few years.

Re: Model Year 21 Changes

I have tried to look this up in the manual, to no avail. My MY17 Kodiaq had these convenience lights on the underside of the sideview mirrors that would come on when you got out of the car. Very handy in finding your finding a key on a keyring. Also handy for finding the right button to press on the...

Re: Model Year 21 Changes

I've had the new Skoda for about a month now, and due to WFH under COVID19 rule I've not had much enjoyment out of it yet. But can I say, what little experience I have had, it's not good. It's the technology in this car that infuriates me. My MY17 was much better. Keep in mind mine's an SE-L, so you...

Re: automatic car washing

3. Jet wash. Complete waste of money and they are DIY, so you stand a good chance of getting soaked from blow back. They remove lumps of mud, but will not remove road film Hmmm. I feel compelled to chime in. :| I prefer to wash and clean my car the hard way, but if we have had a particularly dry sp...

Things like select park, and no parking brake or neutral and parking brake etc , any ideas?. Some even say dont do it as the paint is too thin for contin...

Re: Model Year 21 Changes

Does the MY21 retain the 30GB HDD though? Can you use any old USB stick (OK, it would need an adapter to connect to the USB-C) and then just move music onto the onboard HDD? BTW, I haven't researched this suggestion yet, but if it truly is available to us to do with as we desire then this is defini...
