Detailed Skoda Rapid Review

What's Good?

The handling of the car is very good. Good pick up, smooth steering and comfortable seats. Suspension is good for bumpy roads.

What can improve?

There is a thud noise from the rear suspension when the car jumps over humps. The skoda service could not rectify the fault. They admitted all skoda cars have this problem. The noise appears to be from the rear suspension. Also small small rattling sound from the doors and squeaky noise from the seats are irritating. The display on the front panel is too small and is difficult to read. The mileage is very poor. This has to be improved. There is no engine guard plate or water splash cover provided under the engine compartment. The engine is likely to get damaged if a hump on the road hits it. Also the engine room gets dirty with splashes of muddy water on the road. The GPS should be fitted with the music system instead of the loose wiring. It would be nice if paddle shits are provided . A bigger display would

Overall Comments

I have driven only 700 km till today. The mileage may improve after Ist service. Altogether a good car especially for seniors and those who like a slow and enjoyable drive.
