    Warranty Worth it?

    Hi Everyone!

    My first post

    I'm picking up a 2016 Skoda Yeti 2.0 TDI 150 DSG next week and i can't wait!

    The only thing that i'm worried about it do I or don't i get the extra warranty? I think mine is the Wet clutch DSG which i believe is more reliable?

    After speaking to my friend who is a mechanic he said the engine is great, DSG is reliable enough but if they go wrong they can cost alot of money.

    £4000? Then warranty will cost £800 for 3 years.

    Whats everyone else thoughts?

    Thank you

    You need to check the warranty will cover the clutch for what could be termed were and tear and the Mechatronic for faults. Most warranties are a joke.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Being a 2016 vehicle there may be a few months left on the original warranty. However when buying from a Dealer it is written in law under your consumer rights, that the Dealer is responsible for ANY fault present or developing at the time of sale for a period of six months. That is over and above any warranty offered by the dealer and if something does go wrong the onus is on the dealer to prove the fault was not present or developing at the time of sale, not on you to prove it was.

    If you want to get the three year warranty I think you will have to commit to it at the time of purchase. I mentioned the six months consumer rights as it covers ANY fault present or developing at the time of sale and will cover the clutch and it will give you a bit more than the standard three year warranty that either has or will expire soon. My Yeti is seven years old with 94000 miles and I did not get an extended warranty when I bought it new.
