Re: Jack type

I paid £70 for a VAG unused, unmarked spacesaver with ditto jack and tools (no foam block) from my local scrappy. So the foam block cost you £180!

Re: Car locking itself

The more I read about Skoda problems on this and the Kodiaq forum. the more worried I am getting about getting another Skoda. I change my car about every year and Karoq's time is up.
