Great vehicle IF youre lucky and don't face issues

By Dinesh for Skoda Rapid 2011-2013

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 a possible "rat bite" (I am now hesitant to belive so). The third time was early Jul. The vehicle is still in the service center - it's been over a month. They have tried a couple of things to fix the problem and have been unsuccessful. I am now for over a month without my car (no courtesy car too). I hope it will be fixed soon - its a shame that a well built vehicle as this has such nagging issues that will stop it from being a good seller here in India. I will wait another week or so before I take some action - I'm running out of patience...

    skoda terrible service till now

    I bought this car with great hopes that Skoda might have changed its service tactics but still even to this date they provide horrible service in their service centers. Their service manager is useless as he provides terrible service and their mechanics are stealing parts or replacing good parts with worn out parts which force customer to go back and Read More
