Well its better to buy Octavia 12.5 Lacs with 3-5 years warranty than 9.5 Lacs with only 1 year warranty.

Same with Laura 15.5+ 3yrs warranty better than 12.5 with 1year warranty.

Warranty should mean replacement of defective parts, no questions asked and no hassles or long explanations to be given. If you are sure that Skoda will do that, then perhaps 3-5 years warranty.

By the way, if what I have read above is a Skoda offer, then that says one can expect to incur 3 lakhs on parts alone between years 2-5 of owning an Octavia. Wow!!!, what nonsense. Pay 9.5 and get 1 year of dubious warranty, but prepare to shell out perhaps 3 lakhs subsequently over parts. Alternately, pay 12.5 lakhs and get 3 years of dubious warranty.

Actually, 9.45 for a 147 bhp car ain't bad.

Shame on Skoda !!!
Its not as if this problem is new and they are still struggling to cope with it. In fact they have been here plundering money for years and like Honda seem to carry an imaginary halo around itself.

Was in Bangalore for some time and know the Orange group which pretty much sells everything by marketing it to be on great discounts

Might be they can afford that in that region in particular..
Surplus stock, difficult to finance, new competition, proximity to production unit (same state less duties)...

Its reaaly gettin hot out there in the premium segment... less buyers and tougher scrutiny by the banks for loans...

Irresistible deal...

I have checked and am told that the warranty conditions are unchanged with the offer. Who told you of this arrangement?

A comment made in jest, I hope!! Am sure you didn't want a Skoda lawyer waking you up in the morning!

See post 16 on this thread. If I misunderstood in any manner, then my sincere apologies, and I eat crow.

Do they have an Expiry date by any chance? I got fish sauce on good terms recently
