My ever-reliable ‘hasn’t missed a beat in 5 years’ SOTA workhorse is retiring in the next two weeks. 😦 With 106,000 km on the dial and 5 years of SOTA travels under the bonnet, it’s time to say farewell to the 2012 Skoda 4×4 2-litre diesel Yeti. Wow what a wonderful car the Skoda Yeti has been for me, if it wasn’t for a lack of clearance under the chassis and medium profile tires the Yeti would have stayed by my side. The under chassis clearance means careful dodging of boulders and wheel ruts. 🙂 I have taken this medium-size diesel workhorse to places in south-east Australia where it’s European designers would have been surprised to see it. One 4WD track in particular cost me two new front tires $$$. Farewell Yeti, it’s been 5 year of fantastic travels around south-east VK.
I will introduce my new SOTA 4×4 companion on it’s arrival. In the meantime here are some photos of the retiring Skoda ‘SOTA’ Yeti..

Mt Coree – serious 4×4 drivers commented ‘wow how the hell did you get the Yeti up here?’ 😮
