Hello

Our last SX4, office car, completed nearly 1.5 lacs in around 3 years of running!
Yes our car runs that much. And till the very end was very enjoyable to drive. Pity that it had to be sold.

Guess I am one of the lucky few as far as Skoda is concerned. The car did come as a CBU so that might have something to do with it.
If you have the diesel PD, then that's the norm really, not an exception. My friend had a Rider which clocked 1.5L before he sold it. These are among the very few German cars in India which were reliable.

Just got my car back from service, changed the timing belt (2006 Swift Vxi, ODO - 98066). The SA told me that the newer cars come with chain instead of the belt.

Yes, the timing chain is making a bit of a revival.
60-70-80 all chains, 90-00-2010 ore and more belts instead of chains.
Last 5-10 years several manufacturers have gone back to chains.

That's what my 2006 WagonR's ODO displays as of day before.

Needless to say- Still keeps munching kms without any hesitation with stock Engine and Gearbox.

No enthusiast's car this, but certainly has an enthusiastic driver ☺

2007 Honda Accord AT, 121k kms. Engine noise negligible, yet carry 1 L Castrol Magnatec because of the need to fill up between service intervals. The car is gradually showing signs of 2nd Suspension O/H, and asking for body work...etc

Safari is doing good spent around 2 Lakhs in changing the upholstery and interiors. Reliable and still being used for long runs.
