Overall poor experience. Was fine for the first year then downhill

So many rattles!

Part failed under warranty and I had to have it replaced so I could drive the car but was not close enough to a dealer to have it towed back. Skoda told me to have part replaced and then claim reimbursement. Then denied reimbursement because of a roadside assistance policy even though I followed what they told me to do.

Even if the product is good you'll be left with a sour taste in your mouth at some point. Show details

Great Small SUV

Great Small SUV. Bought a Karoq Sportline in Covid not by choice but due to limited choices / stock. Options are expensive. Looked at a T-ROC which is the sister car from VW but it felt cheaper inside and smaller. The Karoq has a soft touch dash but the T-ROC has plastic and no big screen option (at the time). the 140KW Engine is plenty and feels like my old GTI. Had a leaking rear CV joint that was replaced under warranty no issues. This was Picked up by my own mechanic. Noise from Course Roads are higher than normal. A few rattles due to cheaper plastics in the display. Overall a great vehicle so far. Id buy again. Show details

Awesome SUV

I wanted a sporty smaller SUV. The Karoq delivers beautifully. I am retired and use it for general commuting. I detest the abundance of Very Large 4WDs that the "Family" uses once a year and clutters parking spaces, diminishes road visibility so wanted a more compact version that can commute, go fishing and carry bicycles on a rear rack. Karoq does it all. As I wanted a carefree life I prepaid for 3 years servicing at a good price. The dealer didn't offer a loaner car, but everything else was properly done . Show details ·  1

Great car, poor back-up

We chose this car to replace a larger car and love it's size and economy, however, at 6000km we have had to replace the rear brake rotors and pads, which the company thinks is OK. They will not talk to us and the Skoda Australia ambassador is almost to the point of rude. Further research has shown that this is quite a common fault in the UK. Be aware if buying this model.  Show details

Questions & Answers

Had to change the battery in my 2019 Skoda Karoq recently and after following the recommended manual procedure I had to call Assist to help me bring all the 'systems' back to functioning. Simply pressing down hard on the break pedal as directed by the Skoda Assist technician brought everything back to normal. A fantastic car but one strange quirk; upon turning off the ignition a noticeable 'buzzing' noise from the engine bay. Lasts about 2 minutes then disappears. According to Skoda Service technician 'this happens to all Karoqs.' Hmmm. Didn't happen for the first year or 2 but now it seems a constant companion. Anyone else experience this quirk? Thanks.
