This Yeti is our third Skoda, we previously had Octavias, which were so reliable and comfortable but we wanted a car easier to get into, my husband having had both hips replaced. We chose the top of the range petrol and 4x4 so fuel economy is far lower than the last Octavia, which was a diesel. I am getting 40mpg on the motorway now after 15k miles on the clock. MOT is due in a month and it's fully main-dealer serviced. I use it very much like a workhorse and can pile the inside high with items for the skip. Then when I put the seats up again, I return to a luxurious and very comfortable vehicle which drives very much like a normal car. I like the small footprint, now that I am widowed. It isn't a flash car, so I feel perfectly safe driving and know it will still be where I parked it but it is a nice looking car. I am up and down to my allotment and am always able to negotiate the grass and bumpy track.

I bought this car about three months ago, from our local Skoda dealer. It is mainly used for transporting wood, tools etc. to and from a range of jobs. Having looked at a range of different vehicles, I chose the Yeti because of its carrying capacity, versatility and the fact that we have owned three Skodas, in the past, which have all been excellent and reliable cars. However, this one, with only 58,000 miles on the clock, is proving to be the 'problem child' of the family. The engine/transmission has a curious vibration, especially noticeable on setting off. This does not manifest itself on the move. The engine has gone into 'limp home mode' on three occasions. The first time, the fault was apparently the fuel sensor. The second time, it was the spark plugs, which were replaced and the third time is yet to be investigated, by Skoda, at a charge of £69 , for the diagnostics. Bearing in mind that I have only owned the car for three months and have covered 650 miles, this is ridiculous! I hope Skoda can find the real fault, but don't hold out much hope. Maybe it's a case of 'cutting my losses' and getting rid of it. Shame, because the Yeti could be a great car. Mine, however appears to be the proverbial 'bag of spanners!' What to buy to replace it though? Any ideas?

Was happy with my Yeti until a few weeks ago when it suffered a total gearbox failure. I was quoted nearly £5,000 to repair although some of this may be covered under the extended warranty I had bought. However, today informed that the prices for the replacement parts quoted by Skoda were wrong and it is going to cost nearly an additional £2,000. This is getting ridiculous and I could buy a new small car for what this repair is going to cost. Contacted Skoda directly who were not very sympathetic and basically said as out of warranty nothing they can do to help. However I really do not think a gearbox should fail catastrophically after only 45,000 miles and unfortunately I bought this car thinking it would be reliable.

After all the goods reviews I read on the Yeti, I just wanted one. Have been very pleased with the car, so many great features on this model. Fuel consumption has been excellent, I have been using the expensive Shell diesel mainly for several months now. This seems to have improved my mpg by approx 10 mpg according to the computers display from avg 42 to 52 mpg avg. The Skoda dealership and Skoda have been great in my experience, when the car had to be returned for a couple of problems under warranty. The last one being near side cv joint knocking noise. The only gripe I have found is the sun visors are not deep enough, making driving westward towards a low setting sun difficult . Have got over this by purchasing some cheap plastic extensions from Amazon.

no electrical problems at all & the only mechanical problem was a rear brake pad shim was missing creating a rattle. I am unsure whether it fell out or was missing since initial build. The performance of the brakes was unaffected.

It is the only new car I have had (and I have had a lot ) that has never had to go to a dealer for warranty work, it is nearly 2 years old and has not even needed its first variable service yet.

We bought this car last year and when winter came we were so glad we bought the Yeti with permiant 4x4 and the hill climb button as we live up a very steep hill. It was so reassureing to come to the bottom of the hill and just flick the button and let the car take over as i'm disabled i would not be able to get out if i was to get stuck.

The yeti does not take up much room on the road, yet accomadates 2 adults, 3 children and 2 large dogs rather well. I'm averaging 43mpg in the winter, 46+ in the warmer months. Not too many of these cars on the road, but i love the styling, the smooth handling and the diesel engine seems very eager to go. Fitted this 2wd car with 4 winter tyres and was able to drive where other cars dare not, even up to remote northumberland woods with icy tracks. The car feels solidly built, and very planted on the road even when pushed through tight bends. Highly recommended!

Brilliant in every respect. Great value for money and incredibly well equipped when compared with "the competition". Four wheel drive is excellent and imperceptible, flexibility internally is unique. Puts a smile on my face each and every time i drive it.

An excellent car that is also good vaue for money.it drives extremely well for a suv and is very well equiped.the brakes however could be stronger and the ride is a little crashy although this is offset by very good handling.the interior quality is very good for the money.

I bought this from new with 0% and a 3 year service deal. It has recently had a major long-life (variable) service, having done around 50,000 mixed driving miles. Had two sets of tyres at 25,000 and 48,000 miles (Nexxen n8000's are great and really cheap-under £200 for 4x17" fully fitted!) and it averages 45mpg. No issues with reliability so far, with just the occasional drop of oil required-keep a litre bottle of 5/30w fully synthetic handy. Pluses. Fun and easy to drive. Great visibility. Practical. Cheap to run (Ins Gp 12, 45-50mpg). Good quality cabin materials/well put together-soft touch in places and the harder plastics lower down actually make it more practical. Negatives. Not the most refined (gruff diesel, fairly large amount of wind noise/not the best insulation vs external noise of engine and other stuff happening outside, suspension set-up does not smooth pot-holes or speed bumps well, with these coming through to the cabin in a harsh manner at times).

Got our Yeti autumn last year and it is by far the best vehicle I have owned. The major appeals were the low fuel cost, family friendly interior (very 'open' cabin) and ride height (rural location). What I didn't expect was for it to be so great to drive, and this is just the diesel version so petrol must be epic. For everyday use the Yeti is just effortless to drive, extremely responsive and the suspension works like a charm. However if you want to treat it a bit rough and throw it around it will do that too. On the rare occasion I can get the rear end to step out it bites back almost instantly. The brakes are sharp without being brutal and if you want to use all your gear revs it will go quick! Motorway cruising could be quieter but I'll live with that considering my budget and the long list of plus points.

Disappointing to be honest. And thats difficult to say when spending £16K on a second hand car. First wash indicated to me the wheel arch liner and some interior trim had never been fitted properly and that was the start of the questionable build quality. New dash pod, diff dampener, handbrake trim, Haldex sender, fuel pump, brakes (corroded). I finally got shot as I suspect the DMF was clanking. On the 17in wheels the ride is not good at all (I have hard sports cars and its just a bad set up on the Yeti). Stereo is the worst I have had in any car for sound. I could see bad paint at the bottom of doors. The car was babied by the previous owner and me alike. The plus points, it can be fun, its seats fold quick so useful, xenon headlamps brilliant as was heated windscreen, easy to drive for anyone despite it being large(ish). Frankly the dealers had my car far too often. I sold it to my mind, with the fuel pump making too much noise as was the flywheel, all before the car made 35k, its going to be an expensive car to own. I'm glad I kept the old Fabia still (2006 car 123k) as its 10 time the quality, with half the list price. I'm really concerned that Skoda will find it tough in a few years now quality isn't number 1 priority. Oh, and its been a long time since I owned a car that needed down changes to get up a hill, wheres the 170 BHP going? its quick in low gears but really slow in 4/5/6.

This is the second Yeti I have owned and so far as with all the Skodas I have owned before no problems have cropped up at all. Really is a pleasure to drive.

I have a 2012 Skoda Yeti and I found rust in all 4 doors less than 12 months after I got it. The doors where repainted but 8 months later the rust came back. It looks like I am getting the doors repainted one more time, under warranty. It is likely that the rust in this Skoda Yeti is here to stay, so I am getting rid off it. Otherwise the car is OK. But the dealership needs to do something about its service regards to car under warranty.

I have had much problems with my Yeti. 1. Rust. See more below 2. Electric problems. My windows goes up and down on their own. Only during wet months october to march. No one know why. VW has problems with galvanisation of certain car models (I’ve read about Passat and A4 and Skoda Yeti). I have a 2010 Skoda Yeti where I found rust in 2012. It was repainted in summer of 2012 and now in 2013 the same problem pops up again. VW will not fix the problem again because it is a few months over a 3 year warranty. But it's the same problem that occurred after only 2 years. They made the paint job just to keep me happy until the 3 year guaranty period passed. I have talked to paint shops and been told that if there is a galvanisation problem it is no use to cover it with new paint. The only way to solve it is to get new metal that is galvanised in a correct way. But I guess that VW has no interest in changing my 5 doors. When I talked to the VW authorised paint shop they told me that VW has had this problem with a few of their models. Now I’m stuck with a Yeti that is rusting rapidly (the rust expand quickly when the galvanisation is bad). The biggest problem is not that a fault has occurred on my car, but that VW is hiding the problem to save cost.
