Skoda Auto is an vehicle manufacturer based in the Czech Republic and was founded in 1895 by Vaclav Laurin and Vaclav Klement. It was originally called Laurin & Klement before it was aqquired by Skoda Works in 1925. Since 2000, it has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Volkswagen Group.
Volkswagen Group took a 30% share in 1991, at this point Skoda was producing rear engined saloons. VW Group introduced a number of refinements to the Skoda range and over time the quality and reliability improved dramatically.
Skoda also has a past in Motorsport and became a partcipant in the FIA World Rally Championship in 1999 using improved models of the Skoda Octavia.
Skoda currently produce a wide range of vehicles, based loosely on their VW counterparts, such as the Skoda Yeti which is more or less a VW Tiguan.

What our customers are saying
We have been clients of Cocoon for just over 2 years.. we discovered them online at a time in our lives when historical credit problems were still stopping us from moving on with our lives.. we desperately needed to change our car, we had a good level of income, but because our credit file at the time was less than perfect, we were hitting brick walls at every corner…
After speaking to Paul ( one of the Directors) we were assured that they could help.. and boy did they…..
Within 2 weeks of our initial chat we were driving a brand spanking new Audi A3…. the monthly price (although slightly higher than mainstream lenders) was affordable to us and it literally changed things for us – someone had taken a chance on us – just what we needed……
We then went on to have 2 more cars from them.. a VW Golf and An Audi Q3 – both brand new… by keeping up the payments and being reliable clients, we managed to rebuild our credit ratings
Now after just over 2 years and 3 cars later Paul has managed to secure us mainstream finance directly with Mercedes and we have just taken delivery of a Mercedes GLC over a 3 year deal – at mainstream lender prices too….
We cannot fault Cocoon and all the staff there for their impeccable service along with their belief and trust in us…. it came at a time when almost nobody would even look at us, let alone take a chance with us…. If you are having credit problems and need a car, there is nobody that we would recommend more than Cocoon….
Paul and Donna Gardner
