Here, courtesy of my dealer Meadens of Sway & Brockenhurst, Hants, are the codes showing progress of your Skodiaq. Look on the order form your dealer should have let you at least, have sight of. See below & note the red line and circle.
The cars are checked over when they leave the production line, driven round the test circuit and then before they get on the train, when they get off the train, before they get on the boat, when they get off the boat U.K.side, before and after they get on the road transporter and finally by the dealer . This is to ensure that no damage has been done in transit.
Now you can all ring your dealers and say "You will tell me when my car is code 36 etc etc.won't you?" If they are failing to keep you up to speed with your cars progress. My contact from Skoda executive Office rang me this morning and confirmed that all dealers should keep customers informed their cars progress.

Very helpful post. Anyone know the time scale between status's? Mine has been at 38 for over 2 weeks now.

Exactly this time last year, mine was at Emden for 16 days. I think its just the luck of the draw, oh, and queueing behind the Audi's and VW's!!

Mine was there for a month before it moved.

Thanks markymate. This is the worst time now, knowing it's so close but so far away!! Agreed, definitely at the back of queues behind Audi and VW! Do you remember how long it was from touching down in uk to being in your possession?

My dealer had it ready to go after about 14 days, but I was not allowed to collect it until a week later (6th April 2017) as Skoda would not allow the release of any Kodiaqs before that date.

I certainly do. It landed on the day the beast from the east did, and everything around Sheerness ground to a halt!! Spent 15 days at the port, had to keep nagging customer services to get it shifted. 4 days after arriving at the dealers I was driving it away. Seemed liked an eternity, but I'm sure it won't be that long for you.

Thanks mate,that's awful timing!! I certainly hope it won't be kept at the port for ages! I'd have been tempted to go to the port and drive it back myself! Off topic but have you found any problems so far or annoyances?!

None whatsoever Kenny. I've had 12 months of driving pleasure to be honest. Even had no trouble with the door protector's!! Seriously though, this is the most comfortable driving car I've ever had. I see lots of posts on forums from people bemoaning the MPG and acceleration is poor, but it's a large SUV which is all about comfort and cruising, with plenty of space. Just enjoy it for what it was built for and you'll be well happy.

Hope you get yours soon, and don't forget the photo's

Thanks Mark. Yeah I've read a few aswel regarding acceleration, it's not meant to be a fast sports car! I spoke to Skoda this afternoon and it's waiting to board a ship to uk! It will be on a ship between now and 5th March. I'm hoping/optimistic for it to be in my possession mid March! Only problem is my check brake pad warning light has come on in my car. Do I pay to change the brakes or stick it out and hope kodiaq not delayed getting to me?!?!

Seems a shame to be spending money on your old motor so close to getting rid. Maybe you could hold out and drive around a tad slower!!

I hope you've got marinetraffic.com all set, ready to track your Kodiaq as it crosses the North Sea.

I know, I'd rather not have spent any money on old car. I went to the garage this morning and they checked my pads over and said you can hold out they'll last a month or so. Is that a ship tracking website? How do you find out what ship it's on?

Sorry for the late reply Kenny. You can either call skoda customer services on 03330 037 504. Or live chat on the Skoda website, you'll need your order number which is 8 digits and normally starts with a 2.
Mind you it's probably shipped by now, sorry mate.

Hey mark! No worries, I managed to narrow it down to 2 boats arriving to tyne last couple days. If it wasn't on them boats then it's over a week until next one from Emden! Anyway, it landed into Tyne yesterday! I'm hoping a week to dealer, so 10 days I should have it! Happier now I know it's in the country.
