Moreover, the warranty on the car can also be extended for a total of 8 years or 1,50,000km, whichever occurs first. This scheme is suitable for vehicles that are more than 4 years old.

However, the Skoda Anytime Warranty doesn’t cover the cost of consumables or wear-and-tear parts such as wiper blades, brake discs, belts, bulbs, brake pads, fuses, clutch discs, shock absorbers, or struts, among other things. The replacement of parts like spark plugs, lubricants, fluids, oils, and refrigerants is also not covered by this warranty unless the replacement for the relevant part is included in the warranty. Additionally, the toothed belt is only covered for any premature failure of up to 1,20,000km.
Anytime Warranty will also not be applicable if the vehicle is misused, does not receive routine maintenance, is altered or undergoes any type of modification using non-original parts, is involved in an accident, or sustains environmental damage as a result of fire, flood, inclement weather, or other events.
