Not a Value-for-money Car
User review on Skoda Octavia written by Ashok Singhal on 13 January 2015
Ashok Singhal's review on Skoda Octavia Ambition 2.0 TDI CR AT
Year of Manufacture : 2012 | Driven no. of Kms. : 65890
- Pros: Large Boot Space, Great Interior Features
- Cons: Poor After sales Service, Sky-high Ownership Cost
I brought the car purely because of the exquisite looks and phenomenal comfort features inside the cabin. I drove it and again, there was no flaw as it was running quite swiftly and the gear-lever was working smoothly as well. But, when my car first broke down, then I came to know why people avoid SKODA cars and instead go for some another car. The spare parts weren't available easily even in several district headquarters, leave alone remote locations. Also, where they were available, they were extremely costly. The Skoda service centres were less and I had to travel around 300 kms. to get my car serviced. Though, I don't hold any sort of grudges against the folks at Skoda regarding the Octavia's performance, but they should expand their wings for better customer services.
