Re: Front Lower Spoiler

I suggest you name and shame the dealer on this forum. They should not be allowed to get away with this.
A written complaint to Skoda U.K. is essential. Somebody at the dealership should loose his job over this!

Re: electric tailgate issue

:lol: If you can't manage to get it working with the suggestions above go to your dealer. My '17 reg was a pain in the a*se. The boot lid had a mind of it's own. I ordered it Dec '16, even before the line started running, so that and other faults I suffered was the price I paid for being an early ad...

Re: Plans for Hybrids

I had an Outlander PHEV . (Admittedly I am retired) and my daily distance was very short, just to walk the dog twice a day. I could go at least 3 days on battery alone. Every weekend I did a round trip of 80 miles with no ability to plug in. My average consumption was 55mpg, for the whole time I had...

Re: New member - which engine

If you are paying your own money and don't need to tow. Diesel is a huge NO-NO. DERVS are depreciating like a brick in a vacuum. You will loose shed loads unless you keep it 'til it dies. Modern petrol engines are so much more economical and bearing in mind the price differential between the two fue...

Re: Charged with deceit?

Kenny is quite correct regarding 'All Electric Garages' They were the first garage in England to pump petrol electically and have workshop equipment electrically powered.
It is now de rigueur for Skoda dealers to puth their name on the boot lid.
My old Karoq.

Re: Plans for Hybrids

I spoke to a Skoda Customer Services Manager the other day. Zach is correct (at least in the U.K.) The run of EV CItigo will not be restarted. The Enyaq EV will be available early 2021. VAG, including Skoda seem to be going down the EV route rather than the hybrid. The only hybrid available at prese...

My personal choice would delete those marked below as being a waste of money. but obviously your needs are probably quite different from mine. Personally I would always have leather....
