Additionally, what I've gathered from my Gurgaon ASC is that Kodiaq TDI is actually a fairly trouble free car and they have high mileage examples which have done 150,000 kms plus, still running purely on routine scheduled maintenance.

Hope this helps you decide.

Re: Skoda Kodiaq : Official Review

Hello folks. Wanted to know if anyone of you have replaced your kodiaq’s differential oil, as in my service records I don’t see it being done so far. Mine is almost 4yrs old and 60k km done. After reading the unfortunate thread on the failure of Tiguan differential wanted to know even for kodiaq whether it must be done as I assume they share the particular component

Assuming yours is a TDI, the Haldex oil replacement service is a scheduled job for 45K km or 3rd year service. So yes get it done now! Further your 60K km mileage will also need DSG oil and filter replacement. Both these jobs along with your regular 60K km service will set you back almost INR 45000/-

Re: Skoda Kodiaq : Official Review

Hey folks wanted to know whether the auto hold function in the kodiaq wears out the clutch? Thanks in advance.

Here are few pics just after the PPF.
This is after almost half a decade. How did the PPF perform over time? Also what precautions should one take after ppf is done while washing the car and stuff?

Re: Skoda Kodiaq : Official Review

Hi,

Has anyone installed a luggage rack on the roof of the Kodiaq? Any pictures and reviews would be of great help. Thanks.

Donít think so. Iíve been using it since day 1 and this has honestly been a great feature. Iíve around 60k kms on the vehicle now. Itís been on auto hold every single time I brake and never had a problem so far.

I am thankful for these new age features. I can just stop the car, get out and lock it, walk off. (May be turn to look at it once before walking off).
Jamming the parking brake, shifting to neutral, turning off the AC few mins before parking, whatnot are all way in the past now.

Saar if you have to take care of PPF, it is not serving its purpose.

As long as you arenít taking wire scrub to it or denting it in some way, it should be fine.
Make sure you buy something of quality and it will age well. Stop worrying, thatís why you paid a lakh or more for it.

Re: Skoda Kodiaq : Official Review

Friends,

I have a Kodiaq that I am owning from 2019. Unfortunately, the car got affected in recent Chennai floods with water entering at floor carpet level. To be on the safer side, I had given the car at äkoda workshop.

The entire floor carpet was removed and dried and evaluated for parts replacement. Recently, they have given me the estimate for insurance approval. I think some are simply based on äkodaís SOP for flooding instead of thorough checking. The total amount is a whopping 26 lakhs . However, the compulsory parts amount to 7 to 8 lakhs and the rest is planned as check and then see if they need to be replaced. Looking at the estimate, the puzzle to me is the wiring harness costs. In total, they amount to 17 lakhs, which is 50% of the vehicle ex showroom price when I bought. Will wiring costs contribute to such huge percentage of manufacturing costs, I wonder?

Can anyone throw some light on this? Appreciate your feedback.

Thanks for the pics. Could you please share the brand of the cross bars (Not the luggage carrier) and model number that fits the Kodiaq. Does this hinders the sun roof operations?
