My first Skoda, delivered Oct 2011


Any of the windows randomly will refuse to go or down, this happens intermittently, perhaps once every few weeks. The car has 4,500 miles on it now so it is pretty well used.

ALWAYS happens straight after unlocking the vehicle. Sometimes one window will refuse to go down. Othertimes were I have held my finger on the fob for too long and all 4 windows have gone down, one of them will NOT go back up.

How I remedy this is to turn off engine, hold unlock/lock button down and it resets it self. However if it is raining outside or snow is on car and all 4 windows go down due me holding the button down too long, the window which refuses to go back up ends up with a pi** wet through seat inner door,

Sometimes having unlocked the car one window will refuse to go down.

The car has been in 4 times to the workshop, for this window fault and they scratch their head, I mess with loan cars and a 20 mile round trip for no reason,

Last week a window would not go down yet again so I drove straight to the dealer, where they acknowledged that I was not making up fairy tales as they saw the actual fault for themselves, i left the engine running and asked for a mechanic to see for himself what was happening. He said we will replace the control unit this week.

Car is now in the garage, theyre not replacing the control unit as theyre not confident this will solve the issue, another 2 days messing about with loan cars etc. They await a 2nd email from Skoda. They emailed them two months ago and they had no clue what to do, or suggest to the dealer. apprentley.

Oh and I got to the garage, no loan car as reqested so I am in one of their managers company car as we speak.

Also the car has been in the garage for other work under warranty

All front and rear lights, except rear fog lights going out. Fuse 23 blown. Rac roadside repair. Tookj to dealer the following day with RAc report. Dealer could not find any fault #33;#33;#33;#33;#33;

Key fob not unlocking car. Diodes replaced at request of skoda

Paint peeling off offside front wheel arch. (On a scout the black bumper surround on the wheel arch). re painted/replaced under warranty

My car is in the garage as we speak, their manager does not know the way for forward to resolve this issue as the diagnostics bring up a blank

Any advise. what would you do. I am ringing Skoda tomorrow to complain.

The dealers are being friendly and put them selves out with loan cars etc, so no complaints there but I feel like I am living at DmKeith Skoda in Leeds, I am sick of the hassle going there collecting loan cars. I have had a fabia monte, an htp estate fabia, roomster, and an octavia as a loan car. At this rate I will of driven every ruddy Skoda there is in the line up.

The added time and fuel involved I could do with out.

Unfortunately their computer says Nooooo #33;#33;#33;
