Well, I am not really in market as of today to buy a Skoda, but have been reading horror stories about Harish’s experience on Team-BHP in last few days, and I am really horrified to say the least. He mentions that in his Skoda, parts worth almost Rs. 4 Lacs (Yes, INR 400,000) were replaced by spurious parts by the dealer, and Skoda just washed their hands off it. You can read the whole story here –
Moreover, it seems that it is not just one off exception. Many people have reported on Team-BHP forums about their horror experience about Skoda and its After Sales Service. In fact, Team-BHP has decided to stand up for the truth and they are prominently putting it up in a separate thread on their forum. You can read about it here –
There are just too many bad experiences posted by different people to shrug it off –
You read, and decide yourself if some Auto Manufacturers are indeed taking premium Indian customers for a ride! As for me, I really do not know real facts of this matter; but I have decided that I’ll never, ever buy a Skoda in my life!
