Hi everyone. Just changed my 3 year old Citgo to a superb estate. 2.0TDi 150 PS 2018 22000 miles. Just retired and planning to tow/caravan around Europe when the lockdown is lifted. Interested in any advice on spare wheels, best new tyres, anything to watch out for regarding maintenance/improvements etc. Will share towing experiences once i am on the road
I am a keen Octavia owner having had:
  • A 4WD estate
  • A VRS fun to drive but stunningly unreliable)
  • An L&K estate
  • A 5 year old Scout (kept for 5 years)
  • A 2015 Scout (good car, my current model)
Good cars!

Wanting some advice. My wife's Rapid constantly displays a message on switching ignition on, "BATTERY LOW, PLEASE START ENGINE OR TURN OFF INFOTAINMENT SYSTEM". It always starts OK.

It has displayed the message from new, and it is now 3 years old and out of warranty, so no longer elligible for Skoda Assist.

I have seen somewhere that cars with Start/Stop technology must have special chargers to top up the battery.

First question, Is this a common symptom of this model?

Second question, advice on a suitable charger please.
