no baba... I did not write all of it.
the section was initially created by AjayR [the poor chap is struggling to get rid of his Newbie status. may he complete 50 posts soon and wreak havoc!]
I merely rearranged some words and added a few links.
Greenhorn is also one of the devious minds to have left an impression on that page.

Thanks a lot for the kind words blacmagic. Full credit goes to him for the section in its current form. It is very well written and lets hope it drives home the point to Skoda India. If all this negative publicity doesn't't make them improve things, I don't know what will.

Take a look at the below links.

User talk:Skodaindia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Revision history of *koda Auto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

User talk:IanManka - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's pretty clear SkodaIndia tried to remove the criticism section.

Harish - Wishing you all the best in your fight With the dealers and Skoda Auto India. I wish we from T-bhp can help more than just post and protest online.

Wiki masters - I see a link back to the 'Team Bhp stands for the truth' thread. however I also suggest a link back to this post of this thread, where Harish has laid out the images of the fake parts.

Talk:*koda Auto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Someone who has a Wikipedia account should answer these questions below

One website referenced frequently is the forums at team-bhp. Is this a reputable website? Should a large section of the criticism section be from their website?

Looks like one man protest against Skoda? I would remove the whole section

Tejas, thanks for the reply on Wikipedia. It is well written.

Harish, pardon me for being a silent spectator to this thread for so long. I have been following this thread for quite a long time, but did not post earlier. Hats off to your efforts. I liked the systematic method in which you have collected all the evidence (photos, recordings of the conversations between you and Skoda personnel, etc). Kudos to your efforts. With the collective support of all the members of this community, I am sure you will win.

we need someone who is a regular at wikipedia. wikipedia has its own set of funny rules. Does "notablity criteria" or "original research" ring any bells to you? then you should be answering. else keep out. Wikipedia wants to be known as a keeper of reported fact, and all information should be factually verifiable ( unfortunately this is where it falls apart) through the information being published on notable media sites ( forums/blogs etc not being counted). not matter how good team bhp is , a thread here has less weight , than say, some paid press release in an obscure journal.

so think twice before venturing to post on wikipedia. thanks
