Just had a call from my dealer informing me that my car is subject to a factory recall.
Apparently it is to do with a wiring loom within the steering column that has not been sufficiently wrapped/protected and if damaged the vehicle will not start. Mine is a 2.0 TSi DSG Edition BW34

Anyone else been called regarding this?

Oh Brilliant! Just what we need!
Did you dealer give any details regarding which chassis numbers are affected?

Dealer gave no details about what type or how many affected.
I also used that link straight after the call and mine didn't show up either!

Hahaha. I'm starting to think Skoda is run and assembled by monkeys. Reading the article about the "milestone" by producing one million vehicles this year it's obvious they got their prioroties wrong and misunderstood the old quality mottos:

All new models have problems.
When I was in my 20's I worked for a BMC dealer . When the 'MAXI' came out, the wheels were made by Dunlop as well as the tyres. We tried three sets of wheels on one car and still could not balance them properly. I seem to remember it had a squared off steering wheel, perhaps it cross pollinated with the road wheels. :lol:
My first Discovery (1989) one month after launch. everything painted black Wheel hubs, chassis etc went rusty within 3 months and there was a recall because in their millions of miles (claimed) road testing, they obviously did not open/close the rear door which of course carried a very heavy spare wheel, so the whole lot were recalled to have the door hinges reinforced with a welded on lump of metal. Really jimcrack solution.
So the Kodiaq is not alone but it does seem to have more than its fair share.
