Help for Škoda Owners
"Are you a Škoda owner who has been affected by the VW Emissions Scandal? If so, read our quick help guide for claiming compensation."
Czech car manufacturer Škoda has been a fully owned subsidiary of the Volkswagen Group since 2000. It's popular in the UK with taxi drivers or for other industries where mileage can be high.
Several Škoda models are thought to be affected by the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal, including the following:
- Škoda Fabia
- Škoda Octavia (2009-2013)
- Škoda Rapid
- Škoda Roomster
- Škoda Superb (2008-2015)
- Škoda Yeti (2009-2013)
These are all diesel models, and vehicles are dated between 2009 and 2015. There are concerns all the above Škoda models are fitted with the same so-called "defeat devices" to, we argue, cheat emissions testing. Owners are entitled to claim for compensation in the same way as any Volkswagen owner.
How to find out if your Škoda is affected by the scandal
You should already have received several letters from Škoda 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 have until 26th October to claim as a Škoda owner so get in touch for help and advice today.
