    My car

    I use this car mainly in the mountains of Alicante Spain.The car is the latest version post Sept 2013 and does everything that it should and more. Comfortable,practical and economical returning 44.5mpg actual.The build quality is excellent and although the entry model here in Spain it has a higher spec,ie 6x CD auto changer,folding mirrors,17" alloys and a/c+ climate control,it is more than adequate for most needs. My main car is a Merc 280cdi estate and to say the quality of the Yeti is comparable would not be an exaggeration.My wife and I are in our seventies and it is a pleasure to be able to sit high up and to step up into the car rather than down.All in all terrific package and a major success for the VW group.

    My car

    Good car to drive, fantastic in the snow, and pretty good use of space. However, despite being a calm, considerate and more MPG than tyre-wearing driver this car has mechanically and cosmetically been the worst car I've had since a 1997 Peugeot 106. As for the dealership and Skoda UK in general I have not been impressed at all. A true case of absolutely don't believe the hype. Just because JC, the reviews and so on have rated this, real life and quite a few reviews (see selected ones here and elsewhere on similar sites) do indicate that poor cars with significant problems are not that unusual.

    Problems to date within warranty (and to part-ex at 30K miles just concluded): Poor paintwork, chips, surface corrosion, with dealer and SUK being particularly reticent to assist with sorting, then took three attempts to sort finally admitted faults Cabin rattles and creaks settled for a while then got worse Both rear electric windows failed, leaving windows in down position. Struggle to get sorted A/c matrix failed Rear coil spring failed whilst car parked! At first MoT - identification of right rear propshaft about to fail, front right showing wear and tear. Even though spotted by qualified [Japanese manufacturer garage] mechanic, who submitted photos of problem to SUK on day 3 year warranty expired SUK not interested at all, dealer wanted £80 just to examine car. Car now PXd Never Skoda again...

    My car

    I have the yeti 2.0 TDI CR 140 SE PLUS 4WD DSG & just completed 1k miles from new first impressions are good, seating is comfortable good driving views its my first automatic & am impressed by its smoothness & kick down responsive from a good gutsy engine, economy is about 38 mpg. Body roll in corners is well controlled wind & road noise minimal, ride is smooth, have not had it off road yet but that will come. Downside no spare wheel just puncture repair system, radio, sat nav poor info on setting up.

    My car

    I've had my 1.8 since 2009, covered 22,000 miles. This compact 4x4 has has plenty of character and it's been easy to own. The ride is not the best, agreed, but I don't find it actually uncomfortable and after a long journey it's much better than my previous Audi A4. I like the way the manual shows you how to fix simple things, unlike the Audi which asked you to visit the dealer to fix a bulb, which blew often. I doubt it could be cheaper, inc insurance it's cost about £1000 over 3 yrs, same set of tyres, just replaced the wiper blades and residuals seem pretty good. The quality of service was important as Skoda have a good reputation so I was kean to see if they lived up to it. So far okay, Skoda garages are usually smaller, they don't waste money on the decor, but it's the customer who pays for the free coffee and chilled water in the end. The fixed service deal was a good buy. The interior has been brilliant, roomy, versatile in the back and well designed - constructed to usual VAG standards. Much more rear room than the cramped A4, the rear seats slide and tilt. One fault so far - 2cm seam splitting on the rear seat which was replaced. MPG could be better, but it's quite sporty to drive so you pay for it. I do a low mileage mainly city driving so it's to be expected. It averages about 33mpg, topped 48mpg, just once! I wanted a nippy practical car, reasonable costs, looks like it's ticked all the right boxes.
