Deepak Sulgaonkar 's review on Skoda Rapid Ambition 1.6 TDI CR MT Plus
Year of Manufacture : 2015 | Driven no. of Kms. : 45000
- Pros: after looking at all other options in this segment, I found this pocket friendly and with a good brand. Engine looked really powerful Safety described also appealed
- Cons: Some how I missed suspension in the test drive or may be the car which I rode was exceptional! The vehicle now I have had horrible suspension and bounces me especially if I am solo even in the driver seat! The rear seats are very uncomfortable on Indian roads
It was very disappointing to see quality of plastic used. The rear cabin light knob broke on the third day. The chromium knob on the hand brake handle is so poorly stick on a cheap plastic Spring knob that it came out within few weeks. There was some noise at the rear which had complained several times at the service station but usually gut neglected until last time when I took it pretty seriously and was due to loosely fitted fixtures !! All the windows started making noise in no time. I have a Ford Fiesta which has done more than 1000000KMs and still rapid has more noise in the cabin than that.
