How long for a new ŠKODA to be delivered?

The waiting period for delivery of your new ŠKODA varies depending on the model you’ve chosen, where the car is being manufactured, and the transit time between the port and our dealership. A variety of factors can affect the time it takes for your ŠKODA to arrive, which is why we don’t commit to a specific date early on.

Once you’ve ordered your car, we’ll give you an idea of when we expect to receive it, and our team will be in touch nearer the time to confirm a delivery date.

What is a ŠKODA Approved Used car?

A ŠKODA Approved Used car is one which has been thoroughly inspected by our trained team to ensure it meets the manufacturer’s high standards. The inspection includes mechanical, history and mileage checks to ensure all components are performing satisfactorily and that there’s no outstanding finance. All Approved Used models also come with a warranty, and most are under five years old. To check if the car of your choice is an Approved Used ŠKODA, simply ask our team.

Where can I find parts for my ŠKODA?

At Des Winks, we supply and fit a range of genuine, approved ŠKODA parts and accessories for your vehicle. Contact our parts centre to place an order or make a booking for a repair.

How long is the warranty for used ŠKODA cars?

Approved used ŠKODA cars that are under six years old and have less than 72,000 miles on the clock come with at least a 12-month ŠKODA warranty. For cars of three to five years, this can be extended to a second year if purchased through ŠKODA Financial Services.

How reliable are ŠKODA cars?

ŠKODA cars are some of the most reliable on the market. Between 2015 and 2017 the manufacturer was ranked highly in vehicle dependability surveys carried out by the Telegraph and J.D Power, with as few as 66 problems found per 100 cars (industry average is 114 problems per 100 cars).

Are ŠKODA cars expensive to service?

The cost of servicing for ŠKODA cars depends on the model and whether any repairs or replacements, such as brake discs, need to be made. Choosing a fixed price servicing plan can ensure the cost of your service remains affordable, and can be spread over monthly payments. We won’t carry out additional work without contacting you for approval first, either.
