Should I have the emissions fix done?

I have just been informed by Skoda that my 2013 Skoda Yeti 2.0 4x4 DSG is ready for the EA189 NOx emissions service action. I have heard such a lot of bad press regarding the fix and my car runs fine, should I have the fix done?

Depends on the condition of your EGR valve and injectors because the NOx emissions fix gives all of them a lot more work to do. If they are in good condition you will have no problem. If they are in poor condition, that has been masked by the car seemingly running fine, then you could be in trouble.
