Yeti Owners please get to your dealer's workshop and update your software. Yeti has a beat the heat campaign going on for sometime now.

Is this software update related to emission?
Did you get it done? did you feel any loss in power while driving compared to when the car drove prior to update?
please let me know as my car is also due for service this week or next week so i can plan accordingly.

Yup got it done last week at JMD Bhandup. They had called me up just before the middle of march for this. Idle RPM is now higher. That helps the aircon cooling in traffic snarls. Temp has been showing 42.5 this summer so it's one good thing.

I feel the torque is now better. I can use the 6th gear at a lower speed than before. Earlier I wouldn't use the 6th gear on the EE highway.

This is just my view but I feel the car drives better. I like it slow driving in traffic as well as speeds of about 80 kms

Thank you.
I will contact the person if there is going to be further delay at my service centre. It's been more than a month since we asked for replacements.

I feel exactly same. Though I've not driven other cars, and maybe only traveled in a few. Cursory showroom previews told me I would be satisfied with a Yeti. ( so maybe someone else prefers another car...)

I got to drive a Fortuner close to 100 kms yesterday.
It's a nice vehicle. Lots more people like it than they do the invisible Yeti. But after 5 years with the Yeti, the many fine details that differentiate an expensive car from a good car, those points leave me ( maybe another person may have a different opinion ) preferring the Yeti any day.

Hey guys,

Had a small traffic incident last week, thanks to a careless truck driver my LHS mirror broke. So the case and the glass is intact but the plastic part on which the mirror swivels is broken. What are the options for repairs/ replacement ?

Does anyone know what it would cost at the dealership?

I will be going for my 5th service, have just done 45 K so far, do I just go by what is listed on the website? The dealers typically push a lot of unnecessary service on to you, it's better to be armed with information before visiting them hence the ask.

Thanks !

The Yeti is no longer live on Skoda India's website...In its place, they've got the Kodiaq.. http://www.skoda-auto.co.in/models/range Now, I do know that the new Yeti (Karoq) is in the pipeline however, the Gen1, Gen2 with its funky styling will be sorely missed. It will go down in history as one of the all time greats, as it set sales charts on fire globally back in 09/10.

Makes me wonder, the way we have a Vento and Rapid, a Jetta and Octavia, does there exist a counterpart for the brilliant Yeti from the VW stable? In any form? The Tiguan is coming up. It's a different segment though. It's in the oven and will be ready to serve soon. Me thinks it's gonna rock big time.

P.S.- forgive the not-so-good pic quality. I clicked it in a hurry at an event.

Last week I sent my Yeti for 5th year service and at 45k kms with ABS light on. I was travelling for 2 weeks and hence the car was sitting idle. when I got back ABS light flashed on the dash, this has become BAU now and I thought one of the sensor has failed. Autobhan informed me that very evening that my ABS module has failed and they have requested Skoda for a good will warranty. After a week they came back stating the car does not qualify for a goodwill warranty and the replacement cost is 1,40,000/-

I fail to understand how a car with low mileage and serviced only at authorised service centre at specified intervals does not qualify for a goodwill warranty? Any inputs from the forum members on this is welcome.

I have started searching for independent garages which can help replace the part at a reasonable cost. Suggestions are more than welcome.

Thanks.
Faraz.

Get it from abroad - you should get UK salvage for about 150 pounds sterling or less (Rs.12k-ish?). Plenty on eBay.

Since Skoda thinks you don't quality for their goodwill, they shouldn't qualify for yours either - take it to an independent garage outside.

Why dont you check with JMD just to confirm its the ABS module and not just one of the sensors?
It is hard to find independent garages who can do a decent job.
I have been sending my car (fabia) to Jatin from wagenwerkz. You can ask him about the same he has genuine vcds cable and can scan and confirm for you.

Just to be sure, get all the 4 wheel ABS sensors replaced. They dont cost too much and there is a discount offer from Skoda for monsoon check of 25% less on spares. You should be able to get all four replaced at around 10k total.

Laura uses the same sensors. A friend replaced one sensor on his Yeti and the problem was solved.

Poor Yeti. The most misjudged car in this silly country of ours! I ve had mine 6 years almost and simply cannot find an equivalent quality replacement with the same or similar functions and capabilities.
It is indeed one of the best ever cars out of Skoda works and it ought to by rights, go down as one of their all time greats.
Except in this blessed country with its completely skewed priorities and rating systems and preferences for form over function.

So true. Sometimes I think Skoda should handover maintenance to VW. Such poor sales for such a good car.
