    UNFIXABLE FAULT UNLESS YOU'RE THE YODA OF SKODA's ??

    Hello,

    Please can somebody help me:

    I recently purchased a Skoda Octavia 2010 1.6 TDI Estate, 140K, FSH, it’s had a new turbo fitted, EGR valve and a DPF clean before I purchased it, with receipts for all this work. After owning the car for about 3 months one day it wouldn’t rev above 2500 rpm so it went to the local garage (VGA specialist) who can’t find the fault, there is no error codes, no engine management light on, however they have found that if you drive the car to say 30 mph turn the ignition off / on i.e. bump the car, the car runs perfectly until you turn the car off and you have to go through the same process each time you restart the car.

    Many thanks

    Was the egr valve changed for a Skoda one? With so many being fitted to "fixed" cars, in quite a few cases pattern parts have been fitted and failed. If you bought the car from a dealer he is responsible for any fault that may have been present or developing at the time of sale for a period of six months. Legally the onus is on him to prove a fault was not present or developing rather than on you to prove it was. If they say it came with a three month, or insurance based warranty that makes no difference, they are legally responsible. You are entitled to reject the vehicle if you wish, this is under your consumer rights.
