Review Comments

So I bought my car in 2019 at the October month. It was completely unexpected that I would own a VW/SKODA car for the first time and will get the chance to drive those beautiful machines.

First of all I didn't had any plan of buying VW/SKODA car as of the biggest problem, service cost and non-availability/expensive spares which kind of diverted me a little bit to not to choose this so I went on checking.

My main preference was a compact sedan(Verna, Vento, Rapid, Yaris, city etc...) But as Skoda released rider variant I got interested again and inquired the dealer about it now. As things went on, the sales manager gave me a mind boggling deal of Rapid onyx Variant at 1 lakh discount. It was very hard to resist that so I stretched my budget by more 2-3 lakhs and got it delivered and the first time when I put my foot on the accelerator I forgot all worries of resale value and service cost and it went well. 


So after my due date came for service. my car was at just 2500 because of lockdown situation I wasn't able to drive my car much so I booked a service appointment then went for service. One thing is that the have vast network of service centers and dealers in HyderabadπŸ™ƒ. My car got serviced for 7000rs. With some extra unnecessary AC disinfection and sanitation and 1000 was wasted in that so I got a lesson to keep a check on my car's service and avoid unnecessary charges.

PROBLEM faced so far:-

Unfortunately I met an accident in 2021, my rear bumper and taillight got damaged so I reached out my service advisor. He said that they will do the insurance and repair my car as I insured my car from company itself. The repair and claim was hassle-free, got my car back in just 2 days. I was very happy that i had to pay only 2000 as the cost of spares had came down significantly so I didn't had to pay much and service provided me was top notch.

I'm totally satisfied with my decision and car only downside is that I don't get much average in city conditions I get only 11-12 kmpl but on highways I had touched 20 kmpl. As it's a mpi motor so not a big deal for me it had got enough power to put a smile on my face and enough safety to keep my family safe.

~Happy Skoda owner ^_^
