Mr T,
I can't remember when you got yours, but assuming it was the ed of Feb, you are doing about 14k a year and so the car has assumed a longer service interval. Short annual mileages such as I do, require 1 year or 10k or even earlier if the oil sensor detects the quality of the oil has fallen below acceptable levels

I was replying to H2UBS who was asking about flexible servicing on the 190 diesel.

We’ve had our car since the middle of May, and do 25-30k miles a year.

Historically, dealers have switched the cars from variable servicing to fixed interval 10k miles on delivery unless you specifically tell them otherwise. Then on servicing I have had three or four times where in spite of doing variable service they have set it as fixed 10k.

I started this thread because I found what I thought I knew and what the car was telling me Conflicting and confusing. The thread didn't really shine much light on it. I expected a service to be due after 12 months/x miles but the car currently wants an oil service one month shy of 2 years/12800 miles. It then wants an inspection service 4 weeks later at 2 years/14900 miles.

I asked Skoda and I got the following reply:

"Thank you for your recent contact with ŠKODA Customer Services, please accept my apologies for the delay in my response.

I apologise about the confusion you are having about servicing the vehicle. Most new vehicles now don’t require a service until they reach two years/20,000 miles, after that the vehicle will adapt to either a fixed or flexible service. A fixed service is advised every 10,000 miles / one year and a flexible service is advised every 20,000 miles / two years. The vehicle will inform the drive when it requires a service.

If you would like further information I would recommend that you speak to your nearest Approved Retailer to see if they can further assist you with this as they are technically trained, I have provided a link below to view the contact details for ŠKODA Retailers around your area."

To conclude, I'll be waiting until the car tells me it wants serviced and if it still wants an oil service a few weeks before an inspection service I'll just be getting the latter done.
