Just wondering:

Skoda has nothing to do with Japan.

In that case, why are they trying to commit assisted "harakiri"?

Remaining silent is not going to help you Skoda India, I KNOW YOU ARE READING.

Use this Sunday and think hard and talk to us on Monday morning. This time have a group discussion before even thinking of starting to type.

We don't mind listening to you as a community, as long as you don't give us the same corporate sweet talk crap okay. Lets get real.

the same goes for Fiat-India, Ford India and other European manufacturers.
Thats the reason why Asian companies have succeeded in our market.

Skoda shame on you for using the words "obsessed with quality" in your ads when the real customer is left to suffer so much. Your cars are sold very few number of countries. India can do well without your brand here.

Audi take notice. You have some complaints against you too on your latest models.

Not only Audi but entire VW group cars are pathetically unreliable with lot of electrical gremlins.

Look at the Audi Delhi showroom and workshop at mathura road. It looks even worse than a Maruti workshop.

Poorly equipped tools and manpower and imagine what happens if an A8 or Q7 customer comes and..yuck.

The current tagline of skoda auto is "simply clever".

So now Skoda, after failing to intimidate an individual is trying to intimidate an entire automobile forum by threatening legal action.

In most of the posts on the thread the thing that was urged was to give the customer his due nothing more nothing less. Now Skoda has gone and shot itself further in the foot...thanks to it's insensitive response. Now I don't think SKODA as a corporation is interested in customer care or service.

But NO ONE threatens to block my freedom of speech. I am proud to be a FREE Indian and a member of Team-BHP. So Skoda go take a hike. I take a vow NEVER to buy a SKODA (thinking of extending it to VW group) in my lifetime unless Skoda shows some drastic sensitivity in dealing with this issue.

Drive on!!

@Skoda Corporate (Meghna). I think its high time you respond. The silent attitude works when dealing with a single individual. Here, you have no choice.

I posted link on my FB and this is what one friend retorted:
Thank You Sudev. I really cannot thank you enough for putting this up...as I have just given my Octavia to Nummer Eins Roadworx the day before yesterday....and that too for the first time..... without a clue in the world of what was happening....

So Skoda wake up before the disconnected customers get in to a united direction.

Default Removal of Red Scoda from Team BHP page

Shame on you Skoda. you're a mud horse to be relied upon. Stop looting Indians.

OT request: Mods a request please remove the red Skoda octavia picture in team Bhp page. Skoda doesnot deserve to showcased in team bhp until such time it changes its attitude and cares for its indian customers.

for people distressed by seeing the skoda there, install adblock on firefox, and right click on the skoda and choose adblock image.
Poof, its gone

Oh my god, 22 pages in just 2 days.
It shows how many dis-satisfied SKODA users are in this forum.

Let us fight together to bring justice to the affected people.
