Disadvantages of Skoda Yeti with a run
Škoda Yeti appeared on our market not so long ago, but the interest of car enthusiasts, sales volumes and positive feedback from owners do not allow leaving this car without attention, besides the number of offers in the secondary market is quite large, plus the prices for Škoda Yeti with mileage have become much more affordable. The name "Yeti"In translation from English - Big Foot. But what qualities this beast possesses at the age and how justified will be the cost of its purchase, now try to figure it out.
Skoda Yeti
Škoda Yeti built on a platform A-5, which is common for many models of the concern Volkswagen, and is going for our market in the Czech Republic, Kazakhstan, Ukraine and Russia. Due to its unusual appearance, which is complemented by highly-placed fog lights, Yeti favorably differed from its competitors. The car was introduced in 2009, and in 2013 restyling was held during which the car lost its expressive features. In the course of the operation, a weak spot of the Skoda Yeti bodies was revealed - these are the thresholds and the lower parts of the doors, eventually the paint breaks down and foci of corrosion appear. In other respects there are no claims to corrosion resistance of the body. If the previous owner clapped the trunk door, you can not avoid replacing the lock end, which only changes with the lock.
Skoda Yeti

Škoda Yeti has a fairly wide range of gasoline and diesel power units:
  • Gasoline engines: 1.2 (105 hp), 1.4 (125 hp), 1.6 (110 hp), 1.8 (152 and 160 hp)
  • Diesel: 1.6 (105 hp), 2 (110, 140 and 170 hp)
Yeti with the 1.2 engine has several unpleasant features, namely loud work after start-up, unstable turns on idle and stalling engine. If you hear a diesel rumble on a gasoline engine, this is the first sign that the timing chain has already stretched and it needs to be replaced urgently, in most cases this malfunction occurs on a car with a mileage of 50,000 km or more. Another headache of car owners with a TSI 1.2 engine is the drop in speed at the beginning of the movement, not infrequently accompanied by a beep and the inclusion of an error indicator on the consolecheck). The reason for this behavior of the engine is a faulty turbocharger (repair will cost in 500 - 600 cu), on cars released after 2011, this problem was eliminated. Also, the owners are called for a prolonged warming up of the engine in winter, as a result, the cabin does not receive warm air for a long time. In the engine 1.6 MPI, the ignition coil is considered to be the weak point. The 1.8 engine is much more reliable, and is endowed with excellent dynamics, accelerating from 0 to 100 in 8.4 seconds. The only trouble that can arise with this motor is the failure of the timing chain tensioner, also this engine has an increased oil choke, from replacement to replacement, the consumption is 1 to 1.5 liters of oil. The 1.4 TSI engine appeared relatively recently, so there is almost no statistics on it. In the two-liter diesel engine, problems with the sealing rings of fuel injectors are noted, because of this the diesel gets into the oil system, otherwise the diesel engines have proven themselves sufficiently reliable and digest our diesel . In addition, turbodiesel motors have good traction and low fuel consumption, in urban mode, an average of 6 liters per hundred.
Skoda Yeti
Skoda Yeti is equipped with one of three gearboxes - a six-speed mechanic, a tiptronic and a robotic DSG transmission. The mechanics are paired with any of the engines, but most of the problems with it occur in conjunction with a 1.8 TSI engine, most often the owners are bothered by an unpleasant squeak, when they try to move forward or backward on vehicles with a mileage of more than 50,000 km, in order to eliminate this malfunction replace the clutch. In the transmission, working in tandem with a two-liter diesel engine at a run of 150,000 km, two mass flywheels are out of order. Also, car owners with an engine 1.2 are faced with the problem of difficult to switch gears. The seven-stage DSG with dry clutch, as a rule, works with unpleasant gnashing, jerks and vibration in the second gear, and at a run of 30-40 thousand km, expensive repairs may be required. In the six-speed DSG with wet clutch, the failure of clutch and mechatronic are much less common.
Suspension of Skoda Yeti is quite hardy, even on our roads it infrequently worries the owners. The Achilles' heel of the running gear, like on most modern cars, turned out to be stabilizer struts and, depending on operating conditions, an average of 20-40 thousand kilometers, in the cold time, rubber elements of the suspension may creak slightly. The all wheel drive is realized with the help of the coupling "Haldex 4th - generation", To this system there are no complaints, as it is tested on many previous generations of the concern"VAG"And has proven itself only on the positive side. In spite of the fact that for today on the secondary market cars with a range of 100-150 thousand are sold, there is nothing to tell about the suspension, owners change only the consumables in it.
  • The rear silent blocks of the levers and the stabilizer bush serve 80-100 thousand km.
  • Resource of ball bearings 200000 km.
  • Tie rods and tips are nursed for 150 -200 thousand km.
  • The front brake pads serve 30-40 thousand km, the rear ones are of the order of 80,000 km.
  • Brake discs are enough for two three sets of shoes.
  • In the rear suspension with a run of 90,000 km, the levers are in disrepair.
  • The shock absorbers of the rear shock absorbers serve an average of 100,000 km.
  • Stands and bushings of the rear stabilizer serve 90 - 110 thousand km.
  • Silentblocks of the rear suspension have a resource of more than 200,000 km.

Also, in the course of time, a backlash appears in the driver's seat. Electrical equipment, as a rule, works without problems, and during the exploitation of characteristic sores it was not revealed.
