Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Skoda Kodiaq estate?

The Kodiaq is a large car that will have been used in tight spaces, such as supermarket car parks and urban rat runs, so check the front and rear of the car carefully for any scuffs or dents. Also check the alloy wheels for kerb damage. It’s worth checking the electrical operation of the powered tailgate, too, if this is fitted.

Reported problems on the Kodia so far are remarkably few. Any niggles tend to centre around non-engine electrics, with faulty sat-navs and problems with the climate control.

The good news is that the Kodiaq seems reliable. It finished in seventh place out of 23 cars in the large SUV class in our most recent reliability survey, with an overall score of 97%. Skoda as a brand finished ninth out of 31 manufacturers.
