    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Car seemed lovely until the Traction Control (ESP) light came on. Onboard ESP sensor/computer has failed and needs replacing @ 40,000 miles. (aka "ABS Control Module", ESP Sensor G419) Skoda accept no responsibility for this and no discount to the total cost of over £1000 to replace ESP sesnor. Car is used but still very fresh at 40,000 miles. I've only owned it for 5 weeks at this point. Skoda customer service treats me like scum for not buying the car from an official Skoda dealer. Caroline at Skoda HQ is absolutely hopeless and rude. Constantly interrupts and does not listen.
