As well as the materials defect liability, ŠKODA AUTO grants you the ŠKODA
warranty for new cars (hereinafter referred to as “ŠKODA warranty),” according
to the conditions described below.
As part of the ŠKODA warranty, ŠKODA AUTO will provide the following serv-

occurs within twelve years from the start of the warranty. Only corrosion of
body panels from the inside to the outside is included in the definition of cor-
rosion caused by rust on the bodywork and covered by the ŠKODA warranty.
The start of warranty is the date on which the new car is handed over to the
initial purchaser by the ŠKODA Partner 1)

documentation of the vehicle handover .

There shall be no further claims arising from the ŠKODA warranty. In particular,
there shall be no claims for replacement, cancellation, provision of a courtesy
vehicle for the duration of repairs or compensation for damages.If your ŠKODA vehicle was purchased from a ŠKODA Partner in a country of the

accordance with the ŠKODA AUTO's provisions. It must be proven that service
work has been carried out properly and in accordance with the ŠKODA AUTO's provisions when making a claim on the ŠKODA warranty. In the event of a
missed service or failure to carry out a service according to the ŠKODA AUTO's
provisions, you may still be entitled to warranty claims as long as you can
prove that the missed service or the failure to carry out a service according to
the ŠKODA AUTO's provisions was not the cause of the defect.
Natural wear and tear to your vehicle is not covered by the ŠKODA warranty.
