Someone suggested these Star Mats to me - SKODA Yeti Star Mats,Buy SKODA Yeti Mats,Yeti Car Floor Mats Suppliers in Delhi India which seem to be better than Kagu mats to me and they also have long wearing metal foot pads for the driver's mat for longer life and they cost just 3200 bucks with free shipping.

Rest these sealants and coatings are much over hyped and a overkill IMHO for a new vehicle.

I purchased mats from 3m, these are cut to the size of the vehicle and soak water and dust like a sponge and maintain dry on the surface. They are both fire retardant and non skid. For cleaning one has to remove them and flip to remove the collected dust and water. I was going to buy the Kagu 3d mats but after I saw these, they made more sense. It's essentially like a thick carpet which is spongelike and traps all the unwanted dust, pebbles, dirt etc in the lower level. They costed apprx 5k.

Can you please post some pictures showing the mats in your car? I am interested in seeing how much is the gap between the mat edge and the door (I don't have a Yeti, though).

These mats are jsut like Kagu Mats. Kagu Mats (front) have got a hole with a Plastic frame into which the Mat holder on the floor of the Yeti Goes.

Default Skoda Yeti Problems & Solutions

Hi, I am facing a problem with my yeti - having clocked 8500kms, the clutch has failed; upon visiting the Autobahn service station they have asked to replace it. The worst part is that though the car is just a year old, i have started facing such major technical problems. Clutch assembly kits should not wear of so prematurely, yet i have faced this problem.

I have a Laura too, but never face this problem. Why so with the Yeti ?

I don't think its limited to you alone. My cousin had his clutch replaced in the second month when he was travelling from Chennai to Kerala. The worst part was that the dealers (Gurudev- same all over TN)at Vellore, where it happened, were not able to solve it for two days! He was stuck in middle of nowhere for two days because of this. Luckily he was alone and not travelling with family.

Is your Laura a manual variant too?
How much has it clocked? Which year?

On a serious note, can you explain the symptoms of the issue if any, and the parts that were/are replaced?

I m sure the replacement would have been done under extended warranty but it would be good to know the potential expenses involved had the same failure happened outside the warranty period.

Did you, by any chance, purchase one of the older models of the Yeti, like many others have? What is its date of manufacture?

@MODS: This thread needs to be moved to the "Technical Stuff" section with a modified title: "Skoda Yeti: Problems and Solutions" so that it can become the mother thread for all Yeti issues.

i have discussed about this in detail with the workshop incharge and service manager of skoda. in the TD Yeti Vehicle, which was transferred from Bangalore to Mangalorethey had faced this problem. however on deeper investigation it was found that some sales executives had strained the cluth so much that it was not only burnt but charged and still the vehicle was roadworthy. the part that had given way was a small one, i guess the release bearing in the clutch assembly. need to verify this though

I understand that clutch misuse/abuse can result in this but here, the OP has clearly stated that he owns a Laura, probably a manual and that his Yeti has done only 8500kms and I do not think any owner would abuse his vehicle to that extent.

Let us wait for his response.

Dev, what i want to convey is that it may not be clutch failure as feared, but a failure of a smaller component which could have been defective. i didnt mean that the OP has abused the vehicle.

Many Yeti owners/test drivers say that the clutch bites suddenly because of which they stall the car many times. This could mean that lots of users might be "riding the clutch" in stop-go traffic. That could be the cause for premature clutch wear.

One of the major known issues with the Yeti is that it has a very sensitive clutch. The only solution is to be extra careful and ensure that you do not ride the clutch and avoid any situation that puts load on the clutch. Otherwise the Yeti is a fantastic car.
