Detailed Skoda Rapid Review

What's Good?

Everything is fine about the car till the time,a used car dealer asked me why i had opted for Rapid Diesel,I said whats the problem with this car,he asked me to start the engine and then he shown the oil dipstick gauge,from where some fumes came 'white fumes" on a regular basis till i had stopped the engine,he said not a single other diesel car had this proble because of these fumes engine power reduces over a period of time , i had used my car for 15000 kms and fumes are still coming from the dipstick,i inquired the same from the dealer,they said its not a worry sign,that will not do any harm to engine since the warranty is of 2 years and its still 3-4 months lesft for my car to complete the same, irequest all the buyers to address the issue or clarify this by checks and balances.

What can improve?

tail lamps can be moade more prominent and stylish.

Overall Comments

Good old design.

Basic interiors

Handling is quite good, acceleration is same throughout the gears shifts.

Can be a good smart pick if the above problems have any logical answer by Skoda team.
