Fortunately, it sounds not too serious and also fixable. If it were internal component failure of some sort I'd have been really worried if I owned one.

Skoda Dealers and Skoda UK are fully aware of this problem and the factory is working on a solution to the problem. Let's hope they do it more quickly than the new mechanism that they have been ' working on' for nearly a year for the rubbish door guards.

For my money it will simply be a rejig of the ECU that controls the mixture when cold.or those of us of sufficient age, it feels like pushing the choke in too early on a carburettor engined car with a manual choke. (my 1.5 DSG Karoq has suffered from it- but not very badly, Once you get used to it you don't notice, well I don't anyway!)

I find that if it does misbehave I just blip the throttle which puts more petrol in and the problem goes away. This backs up my theory about the ECU.
I would not describe my car as 'kangarooing' more like slight hesitation.
I gather from some comments on the Karoq Forum that it may affect MANUAL 1.5s more than DSGs

I had my 3 week old Kodiaq 1.5TSi DSG (520 miles on the clock) in to my local dealership yesterday because of a similar problem (see below) and was told it was a known problem which is being worked on but won't be resolved until Q2 this year. They advise their computer showed no fault on the car, yet there clearly is a fault.

My problem is that on several occasions after stopping in traffic, at lights or at a junction, the car simply won't move. it hasn't stalled as it is still ticking over, but the revs refuse to increase when pressing the accelerator whilst in Drive (or Sports). They will increase in Neutral or Park but then won't increase when I put it back into Drive. My only option is to restart the car, usually several times, before I can set off again. Not good in nose to tail traffic or when stuck halfway out of a junction. The problem is worse when the engine is cold, but has happened twice when warm.

What gets me is that a car manufacturer can sell a car (a £30K pus one at that) with a known and potentially extremely dangerous defect, and then expect us to wait months for it to be right, always assuming they can actually rectify the fault.

Does anyone know if these are grounds for rejecting the car?

Phil,
If you are happy to loose the car then I would go back to dealer without delay and reject it. Demand a full refund!
Luckily my Karoq is nowhere near as bad as yours appears to be. Had it been It would be straight back to the dealer and it would, sadly, end my 10 year relationship with Skoda.
It is completely unacceptable!
Reading the Briskoda article mentioned above, it would appear that the fault is (as mentioned on the Karoq forum) more common and worse, on manual g/boxes.

Thanks guys. I need to give the matter some serious thought. That said, it has behaved itself 100% since I got it back from the garage yesterday despite them not doing anything to it. I'm going to see how it behaves over the next few days before I make any decisions.

Just a thought, could a sluggish battery have caused my problem (see above)? I only ask because when my the problem last occurred, the start-stop wouldn't work because the battery was "not showing a full charge".

Out of interest has anyone with the engine stall issue when pulling away also had issues with the auto parking brake sticking. i.e. needed 2000+ revs to release it?
