Latest information and answers to the frequently asked questions from ŠKODA UK.
If we are building your new car to order, then the exact lead time will vary depending on what model and specification you have ordered, as well as any optional extras you have chosen. We publish regular updates to our retailer network so they can give you the best possible indication when you place your order and keep you up to date with progress of the build and deliver. If you are flexible with your specification, colour and optional extras then ask your retailer what stock is available – you could take delivery of a new ŠKODA sooner than you think.
We do not currently sell cars online however you can use the Car Configurator to build your perfect ŠKODA. Once you have selected the specification and extras you require you can then take this into your local retailer who will be happy to check availability of your configured vehicle and process the order.

Tyre pressure figures are quoted in 3 ways: KpA, BAR and PSI. The most commonly used in the UK are BAR and PSI.
To convert BAR to PSI multiply by 14.5―e.g. 2.0BAR * 14.5 = 29PSI.
To convert KpA to BAR divide by 100―e.g. 200KpA / 100 = 2.0 BAR
To convert KpA to PSI multiply by 0.145―e.g. 200Kpa * 0.145 = 29PSI

Your local retailer has access to the full parts listings and will be able to source a required part for you.
You are of course free to choose where you have your vehicle serviced. However, we would always recommend that a ŠKODA Retailer is used as they receive full training in the servicing of ŠKODA vehicles and are kept up-to-date with technical information. Having a service completed at a non-franchised retailer will not in itself invalidate the warranty. However, should any difficulty arise that is deemed to be as a direct result of incorrect/incomplete servicing, any remedial work required would not be covered under your new vehicle warranty.
All ŠKODA retailers operate courtesy cars, however, they are subject to availability and prior appointment. To find out about availability, contact your local retailer.
