I think Skoda is making way for VW; if Skoda provides great cars but pathetic service VW can come and say, hey I provide cars like Skoda and better service as well so come to me.

I guess we had enough old Skoda jokes on the car now we need new Skoda jokes on the A*S*S.

Let me start with one:

Q. What do you call a Skoda dealer?
A. A scrap merchant.

Default Skoda for Sale

To add on, let me tell you one more instance:
I recently got my Laura serviced with certain problems to br rectified but as usual "Sorry Sir, parts not available"an executive replied when they were delivering the car back to us.
Finally I've updated my Laura in the market for sale...I'm really fed up.I have 2 mercs and I' getting amazing service.

Default Skoda Dealership owner in news again

Hi Guys..
Skoda's authorized dealership Autobahn's Director Haren Choksi is in news again. Please go through Times of India (24.06.2009, Mumbai Edition) Pg. 9. It says, "After arresting Haren Choksi, the kingpin of the second-hand imported car racket, the economic offences....... "
Here is the link, Welcome - Times Of India ePaper

Guys, we better be sure who we have been dealing with and would be dealing in future. I wonder how Germans tolerate this. . Wonder who the consumer should TRUST

Default My goodness gracious!

Jesus Christ ! This is the last thing I would ever want to hear about an MNC and its "reputation"

Were they hiring smugglers ? Wonder, what the profile of this smuggler would be and whether any background check was done on him before the selection. Imagine the person who must have hired him !

Well ! that explains the attitude problem and threatening style involved in solving problems !
What more can you expect from smugglers and gangsters ?

The buyers of these cars should immediately check if they have "original" parts

It is in the nature of things that criminals get away with it until they get caught. I don't suppose the guy put "smuggler" on his CV!

And in most countries they are not even criminals (they are innocent!) until proven guilty!

Shouldn't it be 'Demolition man' ? For having destroyed the car with the parts swap ?

I think they are more along the nature of a chop shop which also services cars

Check on the autobahn website. It says:
"AutoBahn Enterprises Pvt. Limited is Skoda-Auto India’s second dealer in Mumbai. Headed by Mr. Haren Choksey, AutoBahn has pioneered the imported car market in India. This authorized dealership for Skoda-Auto is one more step in this direction". What exactly do they mean by this????

Check this out: Autobahn.

After his arrest the entire text sounds hilarious
