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.
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.
Škoda Yeti has a fairly wide range of gasoline and diesel power units:
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.
Salon at Skoda Yeti is made of high-quality materials and does not bother with extraneous noise; on some models, it is likely to annoy the creak of door seals (treated with lubrication with silicone grease), and rattling inside the instrument panel. 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. Skoda Yeti will like the active, practical and family motorists who like to go out on a weekend out for a picnic or fishing, as its functionality and versatility are some of the best in its class. As for the crossover Yeti has good off-road qualities, but it is not worth overestimating them, because the car is not designed to conquer the off-road.
