Did you take 2+2 years skoda shield? what is covered under this? HOw much does it cost for the extra 2 years. I guess skoda has such a bad reputation when it comes to servicing that having a 2+2 is worth it. What do you think?

Also, I did not receive any PM from you. Could you forward again? Thanks!

Skoda shield is worth it. 4 years and 100000 kms coverage. It is a pretty comprehensive shield.
Whenever you buy any car, if there is an extended warranty option it is worth going for.

"The rough road packs primary feature is a pressed steel (August 2010 build on; thermoplastic) engine under-tray which replaces the standard plastic tray. There are also plastic shields protecting the rear axial beams and coil springs, plastic covers for the fuel and brake lines and reinforcement to the brake fluid distribution system and hand-brake cable. "
Read this on briskoda . Can a Yetian confirm this is applicable for India yeti 4x4 too.
Thanks

Yes this is a standard fitment to all Yeti's in India from the factory. As per my knowledge, all Skoda cars (Laura, Yeti and Superb I have seen) in India get this.

^ Yeti, Laura and Superb in India come with the predesigned Rough Road pack, which includes higher ground clearance and underbody protection.

This does not apply to Rapid, as it is a rebadged Vento which actually is modified Polo. AFAIK Rapid does not come with underbody protection.

I am not sure about Fabia.

Confirmed. I have seen this beneath my Yeti while having it washed. It is excellent.

Just Checked the Underbody of my Vento Tdi Highline. The Underbody is covered with Plastic Panels! dont know how hard wearing the plastic Panels are! but sadly the engine bay is uncovered with only the oil sump having a cover that looks like it is made of some fabric

Happy with the drive, 5.5K kms and total 13.5 kmpl average good enough assuming 1.5k of bad or no road of Srinagar-Leh-Manali.

Pramod, can you share a few pictures/travelogue of the trip to Leh in a Yeti for the benefit of all please? Also, did you venture off road at any place or was it the usual NGP-Leh-NGP circuit?

What speeds did you maintain on the highways on an average and how many people were there in the car with luggage?

No need to venture off road if you are visiting Leh in early May, most of the places the roads are "off road" anyway, we were 3 in Yeti and had 3 medium size bags in the boot and few small bags kept in the second row seat space. It was quite comfortable for 3 of us.

Here are few pictures of Yeti from the Leh tour

Those are some nice pics. How easy or difficult it was considering yeti's ground clearance?

Great to see pics of your Leh trip and the Yeti in its Himalayan Habitat!
Did you face any difficulties in navigating the terrain anywhere? Do share your experience as a travelogue if you can take out time!

We are planning our trip from Aug 3rd-Aug 15th and am starting to plan it. Any recommendations on good places to stay/ places to avoid?

regards,
Behemoth

Yeti ground clearance is good enough, provided you take you cross the terrain carefully, the worst was Zojila and I was able to make it, though at some places I have to be extra careful, but overall the ground clearance was good enough, the only time I got a hit was when I misjudged a stone on a tared road and went over it! nonetheless nothing serious but the plastic underbody protection near the rear left door broke, have changed that already it very filmsy mostly to take care of underbody, if you do are doing something at very slow speed, else its gona break.
