Detailed Skoda Rapid Review

What's Good?

A Car powered with German technology. Related to Volkswagen and Audi.

What can improve?

They should know how to respect a customer. The customer care center at Aurangabad has to be more responsive. The local dealer is not bothered about their directive. The aggrieved customer doesnot know where to post their complaint. The Aurangabad office simply forward the customer representation to the dealer back without going through it. A good car is handled by unprofessional people.

Ride Quality

Poor ground clearance. Above 100 km/hr steering vibrates. Tyre size should have been at least 185/14.

Other Comments

A separate lock near the existing latch of the doors( as seen in other cars like Honda city, Suzuki) are required for safety. The rear A/c vent should have provision to close the air in case no rear passengers. Since the wiper controls are provided (wrongly) at right side ( unlike most of the other cars ) it should have a separate switch on the dash to cut off all wiper operation to avoid inadvertent movement of wiper blade on dry windshield and thereby getting scratches on it. Unfortunately the light controls are at the left which is very inconvenient as the left hand is already required for gear change also. In emergency when ever you want to give flash to a incoming car your right middle finger pulls the wiper ( as all other cars) and wiper sweeps on the dry windshield. Most of the Skoda cars you can see scratches on the glass. The story becomes worse with a new driver. The power supply to horn could have been provided directly instead of through Ignition.
