I hope you're all well and this is my second Skoda, first was a company car and she went on through to 240k miles!! So, when recently searching for a towing car, while looking at a X5 we spotted a 4x4 Skoda Superb Elegance, but it was out of our price range until my Mrs decided she wanted it and beat this salesman up! So, here I am!!!
Looking forward to picking your brains and offering solutions I have found, if there is any you are not aware of!! ha ha
Take care, drive fast but safe!
Hello, Just a brief email from a new member and recent purchaser of a Skoda Superb.
I've had my MKII 170 4x4 for just over a week and I'm very impressed so far.
My wife has already nicknamed the new car Kevin after the minion because she could imagine the car being a minion.
Does anybody have any experience of the esp light staying on, and the 4x4 not engaging?
I've got a 2005 octavia estate that should be 4x4, which is frustrating, as the 2wd version would have been about £800 cheaper.
Now, when I accelerate, or take the car off the tarmac, it spins the front left wheel(always the left, no matter which way I am steering, on sand, grass, or gravel)
The tyres all have about 80%thread.
I've scanned the OBD port with a kit, and it shows no fault.
Is it time to face the music and get it to a specialist which would be costly?
Are there mechanical components that would cause this? Brakes, sensors, sensor wires,discs, the haldex gear, etc etc?
Any help is greatly appreciated
found some helpful stuff on here Googling for Skoda info, so thought I'd say hello.
After five various VWs on the trot, thought I'd 'punish' VW for their emissions cheating and get a Yeti this time round. OK, I know it's still owned by VW, and I haven't noticed VW's share price tumbling as a consequence, but it felt like a protest anyway!
Anyway, delighted with my 2 litre 150ps 4x4 - nippy, quirky, 'green' (well as green as diesel can be with the AdBlue system) and just a little different from the rest.
Hi there, hoping someone on here will put this motor to good use. It has been stood for about 5 months and I have let the mot lapse. Tried starting it but the starter motor has died - the copper wiring on the top has perished. It was working fine prior to it being stood, well after I had replaced a suspension arm. It is being stored on my Mother in laws farm in High Legh, Cheshire approx 5 minutes from Junction 20 of the M6.
I really don't want to scrap this wolf in sheeps clothing and the engine and the interior has plenty of life left in her. I think it will be a fairly simple bit of work, however I have three other vehicles and have just bought a caravan so my storage quota is on the verge of getting me kicked out of the family. Speed is of the essence here so any sensible offer around £200 and a commitment to collect very soon gets you the motor.
It has a great interior, there are a couple of marks commensurate with its age and a rust spot coming through, but if you want it for the work horse it is or just for the vag engine alone its worth a punt. Has 6 cd changer and alloys.
Buyer collects - you will need a trailer - it is a non runner and a 4x4, but we have a manitou to lift it onto a trailer.
Thanks for looking and very best wishes
