Appreciate that there may be varying opinions on this one...
I'm about to finish off negotiations with local Skoda dealer for a 16 month old, used MKIII Superb, SE L Executive, Estate, 2.0, 150, DSG on a PCP deal for 48 months. The car has just done 18,500 miles and will be serviced, in accordance with the service schedule, by the dealer prior to handover.
With ~20 months of warranty left I'm uncertain whether to enter into a service plan with the dealer or just take the services as they come? I do between 15k and 20k per year, vast majority of which is motorway miles.
What would be your suggestions on approach to servicing; variable or fixed, service plan or pay as you go, franchised Skoda dealer or Halfords/ATS/local? My current approach is to take out a service plan with the dealer for the remainder of the warranty, then take servicing as required from Halfords/ATS/local shop for the remainder of the PCP contract.
My Fabia VRS was originally on a two-year servicing schedule.
Last December I had it changed to a one-year servicing schedule.
It is now saying that I am due a service in less than 600 miles.
How is the need for the next schedule calculated?
Further to this, I believe that I can request the recorded details of my servicing from Skoda, how do I go about this?
I would very much like to know what details the dealership has recorded.
ps - I have just found the following on the Skoda Website:
I guess that I may have covered 9,375 miles but I still wonder how these claimed "oil quality sensors" work?
What exactly constitute "frequent cold starts" and "many short trips"?
I find it hard to believe that the difference between 12 & 24 months and 15,000 & 30,000 kilometres can be addressed just by some different oil - what else is involved?
I have just bought the official workshop manual for my 2013 Yeti.
I cannot seem to understand a couple of things
1. The pages all refer to Yeti 2010> Yeti 2011>. Does this mean 2010 onwards and 2011 onwards?
2. I keep seeing things like "vehicle up to MY 2011 and "vehicle as of MY 2011". Does MY mean manufacturing year or something else?
3. Also vehicles up to CW 21/2013 keep being mentioned. What does CW 21/2013 mean?
