What made you change? I guess the Karoq or the kodiaq couldn’t have been that old?

I ordered the Kodiaq in December '16 , 2 months before production even started. I was 'allowed' to collect it
On 6/4/17.
Skoda UK would not allow any Kodiaq on the road before the 6th April '17

I kept it for 18 months, which is longer than I usually keep my cars, so I must have liked it!!.
Being an 'early adopter' I had a few niggly problems which all brand new models often suffer from.

Having had the niggles sorted out by my brilliant dealer (Meadens of Brockenhurst ) the only two reasons for changing for the first Karoq was that SWMBO did find the Kodiaq a bit big for her to drive and to be honest it proved to be bigger than we needed for our 2 hounds and secondly I was about 6 months overdue for a change.
I went back to Meadens, got a very good p/x on the Kodiaq (which was sold so quickly they didn't have time to put it on their web site) The Karoq SEL was a pre reg with 50 miles on the clock, Saving myself over £2K on list.
Unfortunately it did not have a pan roof.
Pan Roof being very important to me I kept my eyes open and 2 weeks a go I found another pre reg Karoq, Edition, in my favourite colour combo, Petrol blue with cream leather AND a PAN ROOF!, The most expensive roof I have ever bought!! :lol: £8K to change! but being an Edition and a 19 reg it has quite a few 'toys' that the SEL did not have.
Once again Meadens did an excellent deal for me knocking £600 off the asking price and with a good p/x.
The Edition is my 76th car and my SEVENTH SKoda.

No, I'm just a boring old sod.
I don't drink, nor smoke and holidays are short, infrequent and with hounds, as we are both too wet to leave them in kennels, as both are rescued and had very bad starts in life.
Therefore I waste my spare cash on my number 3 love..... cars (No 1 is SWMBO, in case she reads this :lol: 2 dogs, 3 cars.)

I like my Kodiaq, but you could probably have bought some really interesting cars with the depreciation on your last few cars...

I tend to keep my cars a while. I’ve owned one of them for 14 years and will probably keep it another 14, as in another 4 it’ll be tax and MOT exempt 😎

I had a pano roof on my SEAT Leon. It was nice for the passengers to look out of but I never got to enjoy the benefit!

Got to take the car home today!
I've converted your antipodean Kodiaq back to Northern hemisphere spec :lol: Hope you don't mind! However, emoving the Oz variety is not possible. Colin.

Nice :) Petrol blue with a black interior is the best choice!
