Should I take a 2015 Yeti 1.2 tsi to the main Skoda dealer to have the cam belt & pump changed (Marshall’s Croydon quoting £500) or a good independent garage ?

Up till now all the servicing and repairs have been with Skoda so the records look good & are on the Skoda digi data base but that’s getting a bit pricey to maintain.

Appreciate yr thoughts on this
Thanks
Ed

I have my Yeti serviced by an independent, however when the belt and pump were due for a change Skoda had a lower price than now so I let them do it. The independent that does the servicing gets the parts from TPS so not a lot of difference other than price. I will only use a Skoda Dealer when something unusual needs doing.

And I wouldn't touch Marshall's with a barge pole - there must be a good smaller independent in the area.

You may get closer suggestions if you gave an idea of your general area, for all we know you may not even be in the UK.

.
Marshalls of Croydon was mentioned so must be in that vicinity.

This company are in Sutton. Not used personally but may be worth contacting to get a price quotation if near enough.

Can't answer that, but I have used the main dealer in Swansea, Sinclair's at Penllegaer, for many years and have had no complaints about them, and they have often been cheaper than the garage here.

From the "darkside" I would be wary about the dealer in Cardiff.

I have used the same indie for many cars and years. Once used the main dealer near Pontypridd who have since lost the franchise, and would trust white Dove in Cardiff even less.
My indie has just changed hands due to the 3 brothers sort of retiring, but as they passed it on to someone they trained it's still good, with the addition of younger, more electronics savvy technicians being added to the team. If Pontypridd isn't too far out of your range give me a shout.

Thanks Llanigraham, I will keep the above in mind.

How about indies in Gloucestershire please folks? Also does anyone use Winner garage in Cinderford? Think they are the nearest official dealer. Thanks.

Hi All,

I had a timimg belt and water pump kit, new alternator belt and brake fluid changed on my 2015 Greenline Yeti, at Savi Autocare, Keighley, West Yorkshire. They are an independant Skoda VW specialist, and are able to update the official Skoda service record. Using genuine parts.The cost was£461.94.
