I asked if he check on the auto start/stop issue and he said it works now.
Mine resting volts are 12.75. If they suspect battery damage, get it replaced under warranty.

Apparently, the battery test result shows good. Due to this, they dont seem to be much interested in discussing battery health. Although its a common knowledge that resting voltage (for a new battery) should be 12.6V, the people in the service center were trying to convince me that 12.4V is absolutely ok.

They are avoiding warranty replacement.
12.4 V is bare minimum resting volts needed in vehicle like Kodiaq. In any case it should be above 12.5 V always - below that, expect the unexpected malfunctions.
Even Varta itself recommends minimum resting voltage to be 12.5 V.

I have been facing the same problem with my Kodiaq. Recurring start/ stop systems error. The resting voltage of the AGM Varta battery shows 12.4V which is lower than the minimum of 12.5V stipulated by Varta.

Update on the Kodiaq starting/ cranking issues. After many calls and multiple escalations with Skoda India management, the car was returned to be after 17 days with no diagnosis or resolution. They returned the car "under observation" (whatever that means) - asked me to drive the car and let them know if the problem recurs. And lo and behold, the same engine cranking issue occurred on the second day that I had the car with me. This coupled with the ever present engine start/ stop system issue that just refuses to die down.

Have informed that workshop and they have asked me to come to the workshop tomorrow morning so that they can log the fault.

Also, told them about the resting battery voltage (12.4V) which is lower than the minimum stipulated by Varta (12.5V). Waiting to see what their response is to this.

Hey SilverSmoke - just checking, how they the workshop resolve the engine start/ stop system issue in your car? What was the diagnosis?

It was clogging of injectors & spark plugs due to bad fuel that was draining the battery during excessive cranks & subsequent start stop error. When they cleaned up the spark plug & denied injectors' cleaning, after much research & brain storming, I used the following product from Liqui Moly - Injection Cleaner.

Made the fuel tank almost empty - range showing 40 KMs, got to the trusted bunk - got the tank full with XP95 - poured in the whole 300 ml bottle into the tank & went for 450 KMs round trip.

Do check what you get is imported original product, as duplicate one can wreck havoc. Also use the blue one only - red is for diesel engines.

Since then, engine noise has grossly decreased, it has become way smoother, cranking issue gone completely, accelerations have become sharper, but no change in FE. If it turns out to be so good, I am planning to use it on two more tank fulls & use it on regular intervals there after.

I read it somewhere in Mercedes Benz forums sometimes back. Hope it helps.

I'm planning to buy a Lava Blue Kodiaq for the family which will be a replacement of my current Skoda Rapid 2017 1.5 TDI DSG (which in itself is a great car ). Tafe Access has given me the following quote after quite a lot of discussion with them. Can anyone suggest if this is a good price or if there is scope to negotiate further discounts?

Suggestions are highly appreciated.

The new Kodiaq should be here sometime next calendar year.

It is a proper facelift, both interior as well as exterior.

Unless there's an urgent need of a new car, it might be better to wait it out for the new model.

Just bought mine a week back, you should be able to get the extended warranty + SMP for that much. The new one would be at least 10 extra big ones and offers the same engine/gearbox combination. This is a great buy at the moment.

Have added the 3M tints 70CR on all glasses as well as the panaromic sunroof for 43K. Anyone faced any issues after tinting the roof? The guys at the workshop were not keen themselves on tinting the sunroof!

I was told by the 3M store owner not to tint the sunroof as it is already tinted from factory.

He insisted couple of times on getting the windshield tinted, which I said no to as I wanted to be on the safer side.

There seems to be a big problem with low demand for 100-octane fuels. I heard that Power100 is stocked by an HP pump near Cochin, and I called them to confirm. The person who took that call was very encouraging, and told me that the price of the fuel is above Rs.160, but they are selling for Rs.135. He also asked me to come soon since the stock might run out. I read it as "we have really old stock that we are selling at a discount", and avoided filling from them.

I did fill Power100 once from Bangalore later, and that was a good experience.
