59-reg Diesel, Owner for Less than a year

Yeti is an interesting concept which, as a family transport works far better than any traditional hatchback or small estate I have used in the past. Despite its off-road stance and appearance it drives and handles far better than my previous Golf V which externally is of a similar size. Interior flexibility is another strong point with the individual and removable rear seats, the outer ones also slide and all have back adjustment.

2012-reg Diesel, Owner for less than a year

No problems in 5 months ownership. the performance of the factory-fit non-standard 16" wheels have justified the effort needed to have them supplied. Bald mpg figure should improve - the car has only been used in the cold seasons and is barely run in at 2.6k miles. economy was not a high priority in my spec.

Only had the car two months but it has exceeded my expectations. I think Skoda is one of the better manufacturers and the dealership have been very impressive.
Far better than my previous experience with VW dealers and a VW Golf Mk5.

2011-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

It is now 2 years old and we hve had no reason whatsoever to return to the dealer - apart from an annual service. The ony thing we put in it is petrol. it has cost us nothing else.

2010-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Nothing to say – nothing goes wrong! Fuel consumption could be better, but other than one reasonably-priced service, it has cost nothing other than tax and insurance.

2009-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

No probs in 3 yrs except sticking rear door-handles and, surprisingly, worn rear pads at 37k service. Good mpg for hilly countryside driving. long service intervals.

Lots of gadgets and all work perfectly. I would expect to get a few more miles per galleon when the car has done a few more miles.

Early days but no issues at all to report. A bit thirsty on fuel but as expected given 4 wheel drive and performance.

Several niggles that have taken some sorting out unfortunately. Rather thirsty, but otherwise excellent.

No issues as yet. only 3 months old. Just insurance and fuel came with 3 years free servicing.
