Sharing my ownership review after driving my STYLE 1.0 AT KUSHAQ for 5k kilometers in less than 5 months.
I have never driven a car before but took many test drives before finalizing KUSHAQ. It's an absolute gem to drive. I can call myself a driving enthusiast even though don't have much prior driving experience. I don't think in future I will move to any Indian brand after driving this German beast.
Stable & Performance
Recently done a trip from Pune to Alibaug via Tamhini ghat route and it performed really well. Never felt there is lack of punch while driving. I was really scared as I was driving for first time in ghat/hill area but the car is very stable. Steering is very precise.
Mileage is decent. In city maximum i could squeeze was 15 kmpl with moderate traffic and no AC. With AC getting within 10-12 including bumper to bumper traffic. On highways with AC I was to able to achieve 17-18 kmpl easily. I believe with cruise control on and less AC highway you can easily do above 20 kmpl.
One thing that I genuinely hate about this car is the rattling noise it generates from different sides of the car. It just takes away all the driving pleasure. There is rattling from the doors from the boot and dashboard as well. Now most of the rattling is mainly on uneven roads so only option to ignore is by increasing the volume of the music system.
Fix for rattling:- I went to service center for the fix and they did apply anti friction tape and cleaning etc of the rubber beadings but it's just a temporary fix as it comes back again. Next time I will ask for beading change under warranty.
Boot rattling is something new and they did fixed it I mean sort of but it is same again.
Its average took the latest update and there is some difference in the cooling but unfortunately for me ventilated seats cooling is not working. Before the update also cooling was minimal but now it's just like air coming out. Already reported to Skoda so will update here if there is fix for this from Skoda.
Did not expect so many issues from a 5 month old vehicle. Multiple visit to service center yet there is no peace of mind while driving this car.
