Pros Great Looks,Great Interiors,

Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,High Maintenance

We are using this car for the past 8 months, our experience is mixed. The looks and feels of the car are excellent. the quality of product is definitely German Class. but when it comes to economy and cost of service, its on the Higher side. A person who is not conscious about miantainence expenses and fuel economy can go ahead with the purchase. but beware of the dealer network and service support at chennai.Gurudeve Motors is monopoly for the dealer network in chennai and they dictate terms.

Pros Comfort,

Cons Average Performance,

Dear Sir, I bought Skoda Rapid on 24th May 2014 from VIIRAAJ SKODA PUNE. After going through available brands in market finally I decided to buy Skoda Rapid as value for money. Here I did biggest mistake in my life. From day one my car has problem of 20 degree left pulling. If I go beyond speed of 60 km per hour within 4 seconds my car goes extreme left. I was literally shocked. Next day I tried on Mumbai Pune expressway with my four friends who has minimum driving experience of 20 years. Every one felt same problem in car. I went to Viiraaj Skoda showroom at Pune. Those sales people said to go to Skoda Workshop. I went to their workshop and service people checked wheel allignment and said the report is perfectly okey. No problem at all. But till today I am not convinced at all. Though I made many visits and to meet service people at Skoda workshop but they say only one thing your car is perfect. I was angry with them I tried mobile of Mr.Mali who is the director of the company.But he never answered my phone. I sent message on Whatssapp to him but no reply. I send several mails to Skoda company but nobody bothered to give reply. I was after Mr.Mudassar service incharge in Skoda workshop to solve this problem but he says same that your car is perfect. If I complain to Skoda company I will receive same sweet reply that YOUR PROBLEM WILL BE SOLVED UP TO YOUR TOTAL SATISFACTION AS PER SKODA NORMS and after that nobody attends to your complaint. I will say to all do not ever think to buy Skoda car you will fall in trouble. If you buy Skoda and if your car has such problem you will be in trouble and your money is total waste. After so many complaints Mr.Rajesh who is service head took trial of my car and said car is perfect and it not pulling left at all. I told him to give in writing either my car is perfect or not but he refused to reply via email. The answer I got from MR. Rajesh service head is SIR IT IS BECAUSE OF SLOPE ON ROAD YOUR CAR TURNS LEFT I think this is a funniest reply in Auto world. I told Mr. Rajesh that okay we will go on plane road and then try he says there is no such plain road in India. In my life this is seventh car but till the date I have not come across such defect in brand new car. I will request to every one do not buy Skoda at all. Believe me suppose if you are driving at 8090 km per hour speed and for fraction of second if you loose control on steering what will happen From 25th May I was after Viiraaj Skoda to give me in writing that whether my car has problem or not and at last today afternoon I got reply from Mr. Mudassar that car is perfect just drive upto 5000 Km and then we will review the condition. Now only option left with me is to go to CONSUMER COURT. Skoda will say we are SIMPLY CLEVER people. Regards, M.V.JOGLEKAR 9223280024. 3RD JUNE 2014.

Pros Good Performance,Comfort,

Cons ,Faulty engine, no customer care

Dear Friends, I want you to get benefit from the harrowing experience that I have faced. I had bought Skoda Rapid (TDI) top model. From the very first day the Ac unit was faulty for which I had to visit the workshop at least four times. I am keeping things brief but that doesnt mean that things were that easy. Later on the car engine stopped in the middle of the road with full tank of diesel, it went to local dealers workshop three times for the same problem and each time I was in the middle of the road. I was lucky that on all 3 occasions I was within the city and was driving the car at low speed. Me & my family had to face a lot embarrassment due to this, you can also imagine the same if the similar thing would have happen to you. Finally these b*s***d came down to the conclusion that the fuel is faulty. I had been fuelling my car from the same petrol pump for the past one year. Finally sold off my car with considerable amount of loss. Conclusion Though the car is a good performer & comfortable but very bad re-sale value. These German engines are software based and not much can be done with them in the event of break down. Even if I buy the point of faulty fuel then also you cant take your chances on highway with this vehicle as you may have to get your car fuelled from any petrol pump and that pump may or may not provide you clean fuel. If at all there is any issue with your skoda car I can guarantee you that you will feel trapped & helpless unless you have a good repo with the dealer. Believe me no one will come for your rescue, all your mails n calls will go unanswered beyond a point. My car was in warranty period still I was not offered any courtesy vehicle. And please note that the local dealer will not give you any copy of all the service related documents that you may have signed, not even the gate pass. If you are ready to live with these facts then you may go ahead for buying skoda cars. If you are a skoda rapid owner then keep your fingers crossed and hope that you dont go through the trauma that I have gone through.
