Buy at your own risk

By kumar for Skoda Rapid 2011-2013

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.

    Great vehicle IF youre lucky and don't face issues

    I have a diesel Rapid (Elegance). Simply loved this vehicle - it was truly elegant -the design, the power the engine delivers and the stability of the car even on high speeds. Unfortunately, I had an issue with a coil warning light blinking on my dashboard. It kept recurring thrice this year. The first two times, I was advised about Read More
