Peter,Door guard. Have you tried pushing it in (not to hard) when it is fully extended. Others have said that it simply clips into place? I must be one of the few who have had no trouble with the door guards, thank goodness.

re DAB see thread here.

Hi Colin, I can just push the door protector the half inch onto the door when the door is fully opened but if I forget then I could easily catch on it. It should tug onto the door like the other 3 that work fine. Sods law that it's the driver's door. The dealer hasn't fixed it the first time so it's going in again. It might seem a trivial thing but when you have spent £38k on a car you do expect things to work properly. Have many owners had this problem? You would think there would be some adjustment on them.

I must agree.
I know brand new models have teething problems, but from the complaints on this forum I think Skoda have let their customers and themselves down with the Kodiaq .
I count myself very lucky that the only problems I have had have been with the connectivity.
I would have expected Skoda to have sorted all the build quality problems out on the MY 18 build, but apparently not. Such a shame.

For not at all the first time when I looked out on my K this morning the boot was wide open! It wasn’t when I locked it last night, it wasn’t when I checked it before going to bed but this morning it was open!

Anyone else have this problem?

Yes,but only once. I think I squashed the key. Were you within 'KESSY' range? if not I would take it up with dealer and SUK customer services

Just got my car back from the dealers. They have repaired the trim with new double sided tape and windscreen goo. Hope it lasts.

Hope you've all seen the news recently that thieves can easily drive off with your K without needing your keys.
See http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-4213280 ... -on-camera

Time to get one of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Defender-Signa ... rfid+pouch or similar.

The missus isn't all too thrilled about having to hand over her key for safe keeping, but these cars are expensive enough to be a target for "vehicle re-appropriators". She'd be devastated to wake up to an empty driveway, so let's be safe and not be sorry.

If I am honest, I am not sure what problem was solved with these keyless entry systems. I subscribe to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/KISS_principle.
Now, as a consequence of some gung-ho engineer, we have to worry about our cars being nicked in the simplest of fashion.
I wonder what the insurance companies make of this, and how our policies may be affected.

Added benefit to storing fobs in the RFID pouch; no accidental boot opening.

Damn. I did try and find if this was already discussed. Couldn't find it.
The pouch works a treat.

Easily prevented - lock with the remote then touch the 'lock' button on the door handle within 5 seconds - it disables keyless entry.

I agree with you ref the RFID pouches though - I have one of these and even stood next to the car with the keys in the pouch you can press the buttons on the remote and nothing happens - so no accidental opening of boots or opening of all windows because you sat on your keys whilst they were in your pocket, or even worse, unlocking of the car.
