  1. Hello Friends, I bought my Skoda car in June-2015 and it had an extended warranty on it. I made claim on that warranty Skoda did not honor it saying that by time my car arrived for inspection the extended warranty had run out. I came to know yesterday that there is an insurance policy "Skoda Ensurance" on my car active till Sept-2018, which comes by default and for free from Skoda. I also came to know that the claims I had tried making under the extended warranty could have been covered by Skoda Ensurance as well. Now my question is, if I was not fully
  2. My Skoda Fabia (08), which has been regularly serviced (for the two years before I owned it and the two years I have owned it) recently broke down on the M1 (had been running fine until then). My local garage recovered it for me and diagnosed a failure of the oil pump. It needs thousands of pounds of work to it (which I simply don't have). Skoda are saying that they are not responsible for it and are not obliged to offer any good will gesture as I have not had it serviced with them (although I have owned previous Skodas which works in my favour apparently). Can anyone advise if they have had a
  3. Hello Friends, Skoda refused my claim saying that my car has run out of warranty. I made the claim on 25-April and my warranty was valid till 07-May but they said that since they can't get an appointment by 07-May, they refused. When I pressed they gave me an appointment for 03-May but I could not make it because I was not well. Then they gave me an appointment for 09-June but when I went to the service center on 09-June, there they refused saying that warranty has run out. Is that valid? I sent them a letter before action today. If they don't agree within 14 days, I plan to raise MC
  4. To cut a long story short there appear to be hundreds of examples online in various forums of VAG/Audi oil pump failures - balancer shaft smoothing on end causing pump to fail and any number of other engine issues as a result - and unfortunately I've had a similar experience. I'm simply wondering if anyone has taken out a court case/small claims against either VW/Audi/Skoda - depending on the model of car you had where you experienced a similar failure causing expensive to repair damage to engine etc as a result - and on what grounds. Also more to the point were you successful in your
  5. I purchased a new Skoda Citigo from a franchise dealer at the beginning of March this year. Three weeks ago the gears would not engage, I took a video of the concern. After waggling the lever about a bit, it released and I returned the car to the dealer. Under the warrenty they changed the gearbox free of charge although I had to pay £12 per day to eliminate a £1,500 excess of the insurance for the courtesy car. The gear lever jammed again. I again took the video and again returned the car to the dealer. They kept the car for two days and have said that they cannot find a problem and t
  6. Hi Folks, I bought brand new (built for me to my specification) a Skoda Fabia VRS, which I ordered in November 2010 and took delivery of in May 2011. Since then it has spent 13% of its life undergoing repairs for the following: Replaced three wheels due to corrosion Replaced front and rear skoda badges due to corrosion replaced all four wheel badges due to corrosion Engine oil breather modification to deal with high oil consumption (used at least 1L per 1000 miles) Replaced clutches on the DSG auto gearbox due to failure Gearbox software update to deal with poor gear c
