So Far So Good

By Rags on 25 April 2013

Purchased a Skoda Rapid Ambition + 1.6 MPI 3 months ago. Driven about 2500 Kms, My experiences so far.

As per the dealer's advice drove my car around 80 KmPh for the first 1000 Kms to allow the engine to set in, Now I have the license to floor my gas pedal. Mileage 10 Kmpl in City and 13.37 kmpl on a two lane highway(winding roads/ghats) both with AC on most of the time.

Great things about the car
1. Very good pickup starting off from the Traffic Signal but cannot beat a Honda City, the initials are very good in Honda City
2. Its all but a Vento, so the build quality is just great.
3. Neat Looks just what a car needs little better than a Vento since I feel bare
4. Just the right comfort for the rear passenger and no fatigue driving experience
5. Ample leg and head room 3 in the rear can be accommodated comfortably(Vento too).
6. Cabin is airy and welcoming(Vento too)
7. Climbs the parking ramps with ease even in 2nd Gear(2 Passengers and No Luggage)
8. Easy Handling just like a small car (I had an Alto before)
9. Very stable and feels secured inside

Not so good things about the Car

1. Engine noise. Every time I crank the engine I feel cranking a Diesel Engine. But this noise doesn't get in to the cabin

2. Beware never ask for the additional mud flaps from the dealer, It scrapes all the Speed Bumps and its annoying.

My Verdict,
Go for it
