Skoda has a major problem with the clutch. I know several people whose clutch has worn out in under 10,000 km. Skoda happily blames it on "bad driving" but the fact is that if you drive in heavy city traffic, the clutch can go in 20 kilometres! Its a design flaw which they dont accept. If you drive on highways, it can last for 60,000 kms also. Go ahead and call Skoda Auto on 0240 6631256 and ask for customer service. If you fight hard enough, they will replace the clutch for free under warranty. Best of Luck!
