Nearly 5 months after ordering, my Kodiaq is due to arrive tomorrow by driven delivery. I have been told to inspect it thoroughly on delivery to log any damage/faults. Other than the obvious scratch or tyre damage, are there any common issues emerging that I should look out for?
Thanks,
WeeCobi

PS. I still haven't seen a Kodiaq on the road yet.

I would check the inside driver and passenger door handles - a few photos posted on here of ill fitting handles. Check all or any options present. Spare wheel etc.

But enjoy it. New car day woohoo

Hi guys and girls, It would be really helpful now that some of you lucky people have actually got your Kodiaqs if a list of things to check and look out for was made to help those who are still waiting on delivery. I want to make sure that when I inspect my car that I know what faults have cropped up and what to look for. Hopefully most of the faults like the handles etc have been ironed out by Skoda. I am still waiting on confirmation of my build week which is yet to go to code 20 and currently sits at week 34. I suppose at this stage what with the shut down at the factory that it will be moved forward. Anyway I think it will help a lot of people if a checklist could be made. A good idea? Thanks all.

Sorry meant to put that I doubt it will be moved forward at this stage. (Obviously my brain not fully in gear when typing)

Take the list of options that you ordered with you and ask for everything to be demonstrated.

When I took delivery of mine the passenger air-bag was switched off. Easy enough to correct via the switch in the A post.

My advice is don't go looking for problems that in all probability aren't there. Contributors on here have at times worked themselves into hyperbolic / apoplectic rage over issues which in at least one case have required a good portion of humble pie with the dealer / manufacturer. Many of the gripes and moans on here are just that, and the faults which can seem to be so prelavent based on a narrow focus and fairly voiciferous minority, are not experienced by all. Your dealer will do a PDI, just enjoy the car, and be reassured that you have a fairly comprehensive warranty plus consumer law should they have not done the PDI professionally or should something go wrong.

Yes it is a substantial investment, yes you have expectations of quality standards (it lives up to mine) but it is just a car, and a mass produced one at that . . . Glass half full folks.
