New to skoda

Post by Ggsumo » Fri Mar 15, 2019 9:06 pm

Evening all, had my Kodiaq a week now and apart from being very juicy round town she’s superb.

Have a 1.5 TSI SE L DSG in black, with black alloys, leather sports seats and electronic dash. First longish journey Sunday cannot wait :D

It depends on what you call very juicy.
My 1.4DSG Kodiaq eventually* did about 33mpg urban 44 on a run.
Strangely enough my 1.5 DSG Karoq is doing identical figures at the moment*

*You will find that it takes about 4K miles for VAG engines to loosen up, after which your consumption will improve.
The figures I have quoted for Big K were AFTER the engine had loosened up. Little K has only covered 1700 miles and therefore has NOT yet loosened up.
Your Kodiaq should return slightly better figures than mine as the 1.5 engine has ACT , whereas the 1.4 did not.

Just for comparison, my 1.4TSI manual gearbox with 7500 miles on the clock is doing 42.8mpg overall with up to 49mpg on a decent run.
