Oh my!!! I meant the Accent. Apologies.

@SkyWalker - I think the non-rotation of the masthead image is due to some problem in the forum software. It was mentioned somewhere - I think the "suggestion for tbhp from tbhpians" thread.

@YC.BALENO.CHD thanks for the correction about the Estillo. So a question - is the "MR Wagon" related to the "wagon R"?

And about the Innova - It seems that the qualis was the 3rd gen Kijiang, and the Innova is the fifth. Toyota Kijang - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

i Would say yes, it makes sense to buy a skoda if and only if you have a reliable independent garage and also it is possible to source the parts, the A.S.S of skoda is by all means the worst in india.

Forget about few years, few months back I would have definitely clicked YES. But after all this skoda A.S.S. saga, NO is obvious choice.

I have never taken my car to any roadside mechanic. I don't have a Skoda but, if I had probably I would have taken it to a roadside mechanic as they are far more trustworthy than the Skoda A.S.S

Skoda is banned for life in my books.

Yes, it is related to the WagonR as it shares the wheelbase, motors and many mechanicals. However, it is not a generation of WagonR. The wagonR was initially very boxy and even after the countless facelifts at Japan many were not considering it for the looks alone, so Suzuki introduced MRwagon alongside, infact the MRwagon we have here is the previous generation MRwagon, the new one was launched around the same time at Japan when we got the Estilo.
