Whatever the weather: be prepared for anything with a ŠKODA Winter Health Check

26/11/2015
As the mercury starts to drop, ŠKODA is offering customers motoring peace of mind with a stress-free Winter Health Check.

Milton Keynes, 26 November 2015 - ŠKODA wants to remind customers that checking the health of their vehicle becomes even more important in the winter months, as colder temperatures put extra strain on their vehicles.

For just £25, ŠKODA customers can book their car in at one of ŠKODA's participating retailers across the UK, where their car will undergo a seven-point check on some of the most essential parts of a vehicle which suffer during the winter months. No detail is too small for the fully-trained technicians as they check tyres, lights, brakes, wiper blades, air-conditioning, batteries and fluids.

The Winter Health Check also includes a complimentary antifreeze washer fluid top-up, full vehicle performance report and a free ŠKODA thermo mug. Available all winter, the service runs until 31 March 2016.

Warren Richards, Head of Service and Parts Operations at ŠKODA UK said, "With the nights drawing in and temperatures dropping, it’s more important than ever that vehicles are in tip-top condition. The ŠKODA Winter Health Check gives our customers peace of mind that their ŠKODA has been inspected by our fully trained ŠKODA technicians and is in good shape for the winter weather conditions."

ŠKODA has kicked off its major SUV campaign with the new Kodiaq. The 4.7m long SUV is a versatile all-rounder. It offers the largest boot capacity within its class and will be available with the option of a third row of seats. The Kodiaq places a new brand emphasis on infotainment, assistance systems and connectivity, and goes on sale at the beginning of 2017.
​ŠKODA has hitched up and driven off with yet another key industry award. The multi-award-winning Superb has been named Overall Winner at the Tow Car Awards 2016 by a panel of experts from The Camping and Caravanning Club, Practical Caravan, and What Car?
ŠKODA’s rich sporting and performance history reaches a historic milestone in 2016 with the 15th anniversary of the vRS brand in the UK. Since the first Octavia vRS arrived in showrooms back in 2001, ŠKODA has continually developed the vRS range; adding more power, performance and excitement to cars wearing the famous three letter badge.
ŠKODA’s new large SUV is to be called Kodiaq. The name refers to the Kodiak bear that lives on a remote island off the southern coast of Alaska. Its spelling is derived from the language of the indigenous people – the Alutiiq. ŠKODA will usher in a new SUV campaign with the introduction of the Kodiaq when it makes its public debut in the second half of 2016.
ŠKODA’s models continue to drive home their reliability, quality, cost, practicality and comfort credentials in the annual Auto Express Driver Power survey.
The foundations of an exemplary success story were laid 25 years ago. The partnership between the Volkswagen Group and the Czech carmaker began on 16 April 1991. From that point on, the traditional Czech brand evolved from being a regional market leader to an internationally successful vehicle manufacturer. In the presence of Czech Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, Volkswagen CEO Matthias Müller and Jaroslav Povšík, head of trade union KOVO MB, ŠKODA CEO Bernhard Maier commemorated this outstanding milestone in the company’s 121-year history today. Around 500 guests from politics, economy and society took part in the anniversary celebrations at the Laurin & Klement Forum of the ŠKODA Museum in Mladá Boleslav.
