Not only was the feat achieved in just two years, but the Yeti also maintained an impressive 100% reliability record.
Based in Merseyside, Mr Hyde, a Sales Manager, visits customers up and down the country, and regularly completes long distances to reach clients across the UK. Destinations span from the remote County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland to the bustling city streets of Birmingham, London and Manchester.
The journey across the length and breadth of the United Kingdom during the past 24 months, which culminated in a routine service at Mitchell ŠKODA in Chester, is the equivalent to travelling nearly half way to the moon or driving around the entire coastline of the British Isles nine times.
Jamie Hyde comments: “The ŠKODA Yeti has been a consistently reliable and trustworthy companion wherever I have needed to travel. In order to maintain our high level of customer service and punctuality, we are dependent on the trouble-free and low-cost motoring which the Yeti has always delivered. It has never let me down and I look forward to another 100,000 enjoyable miles.”
Owen Shepherd, Head of Aftersales for ŠKODA adds: “The Yeti is a vehicle which performs day in day out, no matter how hard the task. It strikes the perfect balance between on-road performance, practicality and highly capable off-roading.
“The ŠKODA Yeti remains one of the UK’s most popular crossovers and was recently named the country’s most satisfying car to own in the 2013 Auto Express Driver Power customer satisfaction survey.”
The new facelifted ŠKODA Yeti and Yeti Outdoor is available to order now, priced from £16,600 OTR.
