Welcome to Le Club BigFoot! It is indeed a very good vehicle and yes, ladies do prefer the high stance.

Of late I am seeing a much larger number of Yeti's on the road in Bangalore.

Seems that finally this lovely, elegant, clever little vehicle is getting what is richly its due!

Enjoy...

Thanks. Yea I also see quite a lot of Yetis these days, including the 4x2. We can have a Bangalore Yeti meet someday

Ambition? So it isn't rare after all. Behemoth, you and me. 20 months - You must have got near the launch time.

i too find a lot of yeti these days on delhi roads. It may be partly because of discount and partly because of absurd pricing of duster which made yeti value for money . And ofcourse people realizing they don't need bigger suv

Congratulations on joining the Skoda Club. Do share your after-sales support feedback as and when you avail it. This will go a long way in dispelling doubts in people's minds about Skoda after-sales.

Wishing you years of luxurious driving.

Looking at the duster pricing Yeti after discount looks more appealing.

Actually I have 4 yrs of Skoda service experience. I have also had a chance to experience Maruti service for some time during the same period.

To service my Fabia I follow certain rules now. As far as possible I am at the service center as my car gets serviced (often with other Fabia owners gang that we have formed), may be we don't trust them enough. It is not because it is Skoda and they are bound to play foul. I know others do it too. My father has been vary of Maruti since 1989. Minor accidents do happen in the workshop and I am roaming around so they just can't get away with excuses. I never use their pick up and drop facility. They drive like hooligans.

Following these rules require time and lots of patience. Last week I went to them for coolant change, AC gas check up and brake oil check up. It is an hours job. I went at 9 am. They didn't touch the car till noon (no vacant ramps as they say). Finally I got the car by 1.30.

On the other hand with the 800 that the Yeti replaced, I din't follow these rules as I didn't care. There were issues that existed when we bought the car 2nd hand and it remained till we sold it. Again I didn't care much but Maruti can't get away with this. Had it been with my Fabia I would have created a racket. I am not sure how I would have behaved if I had a car from them closer to my heart.

Next issue is of extra/useless charges. These charges on 800 were very little and often missed my lens, untill in the last service when they bumped the bill to 5.5 k (@37k k kms). I had paid 6.5k for my Fabia just a week before that (@56k kms). Whats the world coming to I thought. Maruti guys had charged some 1700 for scandalous throttle body cleaning or something. I keep a lot closer eye on the Fabia's bills.

Maruti's service is prompt but other wise they are all the same. I went with Skoda again because I have sort of built a relation with them now. Moreover I know the way they function, good and bad.


FE for last fill I filled the tank till auto cut of the nozzle. It consumed 25.8 liters for 313 kms, ~12.2 km/l. Yeti has still not touched the 1000 kms mark.

Still not much Yetis in Ludhiana. This kind of goes against the Yeti, selling in such small numbers, making you think a million times before buying it.

In here , people are still obsessed with the XUV and the Fortuner

The exec gladly showed around in the basement where they had all the Yetis. We surprisingly found a Feb 2012 model [sixth character of the VIN is the month and the 10th is the year]. We booked the car.
This feb 2012 model, which variant was this? was this an Elegance?

What was your final ON ROAD price after all the discounts thrown in? Getting very difficult to compute these things these days.

Am just keeping my options open now :-)

The more options you have the more difficult it will be to compute . OTR was 18.6 (inclusive of Extended Warranty and zero depreciation insurance).

In case you are planning on a Yeti, I was with Hemant yesterday and he told me that he has 2 Yeti Elegances with him in Silver and is in a hurry to sell it. I could be able to arrange good discounts on it.

LOL! Dev, just add two more letters to the end of your name "il" and you become the devil!

I WILL restrain myself. I WILL restrain myself. I WILL restrain myself.
