Re: Skoda Approved Used warranty

I believe the warranty is given by Skoda UK, and so should be valid at any dealer. However if there any grey areas about whether or not a fault is covered you might get a better response from the dealer if they sold you the car. If the car is under 3 years old then I believe that its original 3 year...

Re: 190 BHP 2.0 D Scout

The Scout model ceased production in June 2020, so you must have found one of the last in stock! Watch out for battery problems as unless it has been kept on charge over the months they tend to develop start/stop faults. The 2.0TDI 4x4 engine/transmission were discontinued at the same time. The 1.6T...

Re: SOS Error: Emergency Call Workshop!

This problem has been highlighted today in the Guardian (https://www.theguardian.com/money/2021/may/01/vw-audi-and-skoda-owners-angry-over-fault-in-sos-warning-system) ! It seems to be an endemic fault, but one my car has not experienced (touch wood!), but hopefully the added publicity will generate...

Re: Tray in centre console

The whole tray lifts out if you don't need it, or can be replaced upside-down to take up even more space. I also have the ashtray device in one of my cupholders to take sweet papers. In my Golf I had a shortbread tin to hold the sweets but it won't fit in the Karoq's cupholders. However a small take...

Re: Clips on boot rail

Not too sure which clips you're asking about ... but presumably not the moveable hooks themselves. The boot lining seems to vary depending whether you have the VarioFlex rear seats or not. I haven't and so only have the 'hook rail' on the nearside with no extra hooks on or near it. The offside of th...

Re: Newbie iPod connectivity

I haven't heard of anyone getting one working over USB. VW used to sell a special lead to link an iPod to a multipin socket in Golfs etc, But I think cars with USB ports would need extra software to get them to work. So my iPod sits at home coupled to my hi-fi amp and I've copied my iTunes library o...

Re: Key failure with no warning

Why is the battery in my key fob only lasting 4 weeks at a time 21 plate koroq SEL David L Earlier posts in this thread have suggested Duracell aren't suitable and recommended Panasonics instead. Which are yours? The new keys should turn off if not moved for 5 minutes, prolonging the batteries. Are...

Re: corning lights

When I configure a Karoq SE Technology on the Skoda UK website, the list of standard equipment only says 'Front Fog lights' whereas the list of standard equipment on the SE L (which has LED headlights as standard) says 'LED cornering front fog lights'. So it looks like cars with halogen headlights d...

Re: corning lights

I'm pretty sure that cars with halogen headlights would use the fog lights to get the cornering function. According to the manual: CORNER function The CORNER function is intended for turning or manoeuvring (e.g. when parking). The function illuminates the vicinity of the vehicle front in the directi...

Re: Karoq glovebox dial and SD card reader

The SD card reader was deleted for model year 21 cars as the MIB3 infotainment system uses the USB-C ports to read media files.
