Re: Safety Recall 91Y8

My Ateca is the 1.4 manual, so an earlier iteration of the 1.5. My dad's seeing better economy through the DSG coasting function, he's struggling to get under 42mpg. He used to have a 1.5 1 series auto and couldn't get it above 40mpg. The Ateca is slightly thirstier, but it's bigger and a manual. In...

Re: Kamiq side skirts

My dad's SEL has body colour trim there. I think the grey is linked to the Scoutline version which was announced in May.

Re: Skoda Kamiq faults report

The first item isn't a fault as such. VW groups cars only zero after being off for two hours.

Re: Brake query

It looks like an issue with the pad not making full contact with the disk. I'd imagine your dealer will just replace the pad. The issue could be a manufacturing fault with the pad itself or some small pieces of grit have gotten trapped.
