Help for Skoda Owners
"Are a Skoda owner who has been affected by the VW Emissions Scandal? If so, then read our quick help guide for claiming compensation."
Czech car manufacturer Skoda has been a fully owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since the year 2000. Offering economically priced vehicles with supposedly efficient engines, they are popular in the UK with taxi drivers or for other industries where mileage can be high.
Several Skoda models are thought to be affected by the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal, including the following:
- Skoda Fabia
- Skoda Octavia (2009-2013)
- Skoda Rapid
- Skoda Roomster
- Skoda Superb (2008-2015)
- Skoda Yeti (2009-2013)
The date ranges are between 2009 and 2015 and the affected vehicles are those fitted with diesel engines. Vehicles that have been fitted with the same so-called "defeat devices" to, we argue, cheat emissions testing are a part of the recall, and owners are entitled to claim for compensation in the same way that any Volkswagen owner is.
How to find out if your Skoda is affected by the scandal
You should already have received several letters from Skoda to confirm your vehicle is affected.
There is a VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) for vehicles in the UK that can be used to check if you have had one of the defeat devices installed in your vehicle. It can usually be found on the windscreen or on the inside of the driver side door, but it should also be on any official documentation like a log book as well.
The VIN will look something like this: "TMBBJ73T4F9000001".
The easiest way to know if you have been affected is to register with us and provide your VIN so we can check the vehicle against those affected. If it has been fitted with a defeat device then we can fight for your rights to compensation.
You can still claim as a Skoda owner so get in touch for help and advice today.
