Auto Express's reliability ratings are based on our Driver Power survey of over 30,000 car owners. Ratings are the average for all owners of this car who responded. Individual owners’ ratings and comments appear below.

This year in the 2014 Driver Power survey Skoda Yeti owners once again told us how much they love living with the Yeti SUV. This time round owners praised the Skoda for the ease of its drive and gave it top marks for build quality and reliability. Owners also reported how much they enjoy driving the Yeti. The only small niggles reported concerned ride quality and seat comfort but, apart from that, look no further if you want a car you’ll still be enjoying long after the new car smell has faded.

The Skoda Yeti was placed 1st in the Driver Power survey for owner satisfaction. The Yeti was also judged the most satisfying car to own in its SUV class beating the second place Renault Captur.

Apart from a faulty brake servo on the new car that was rectified under guarantee, the car has not had any problems. The first three years servicing has been covered by a ł299 pre-paid service plan. average fuel compsumption is about 42 mpg, but improves to about 50 mpg on long journeys.

So far zero reliability problems in 7 months that I have owned the car. Considering the engine, the weight and size of the car taking into account the aerodynamics of a suv running costs are so at least 10% below that of a mondeo 2.0 tdci that I owned before.

This is my fourth Skoda car and each one has been better than the last. I have been very pleased with the service from the main dealer, the build quality of the car and all aspects of ownership.

No problems on 2 year-old car. For a 4x4 suv the running costs are quite low- this model is not the most economical variant but is the best of the 4x4 engine options.tyres are expensive though.

No problems - a minor recall, replacement tyres and wipers are the only incidents so far. The weight and 4wd take its toll on the consumption but you can achieve over 50 mpg on a longer run.

So far I have had absolutely no problems at all. I have not owned the car for long enough to be able to calculate these but I would estimate them to be quite acceptable.

It's great in a weather and on and off road I've had it nearly 2 years and not had a single fault. It cost around ł70 to fill and will last me an entire month.
