    Er, yes it will. They have brakes - well as good as any other van will. In fact, I'd rather have that setup than 150-200kg pushing down hard on the tow bar (no matter what the vehicle).

    Found a Skoda weakness - tow ball load.

    I've found a weakness of Skoda's. The tow ball load limits are quite low.

    Yes, I'm sure they don't ever do the filter in mine - Gen IV. It's the one thing I get the dealer to do as I read the official manual description and decided it was too painful. That and getting to...

    Righto, thanks. I know your username so that you know what you're talking about. Very similar to my car (minus the DSG). That's good as I wanted it to tow a caravan to Queensland this winter rather...
