BHPians, please spend two minutes to sign up at Digg and digg this story:
Skoda Auto sucks - threatens users describing their service

This would be a great method to draw international attention to the issue we are facing.

Guys, please "Digg", we need more diggs if this thread is to come in the home page of digg.com:

Can we be sure the post from Skoda was indeed from Skoda? I mean if it is then after all these comments how come there has been no more response from them -> if they are neglecting this they are in for serious problems.

GTO has already confirmed that the e-mail ID behind is user is from Skoda India's domain name. So the posts are indeed from Skoda.

OT but I got fed up of the yellow! Yup it came only with the VRS. VRS was available in red,black,silver and yellow, our of that red and silver were available in all versions while black was available only in the L&K and later on black was made available in another version called the Rider Classic.

Simonkayar thats a good way to let everybody around the world know in a fast and furious way. Good work man. I've seen many emails going round and round for many years, people just keep forwarding em, I am sure that this act of yours will help people to decide what they really want. Do mr a favour, would you mail me that mail, so that I can also be an instrument in spreading awareness? I am not sure if it is allowed on team-bhp to get personalised in terms of asking or requesting or sending personal details, but for the cause of it, I hope there can be an exception. Please mail me on parthmodi@yahoo.com.

hey harish,

kudos to your spirit. Even if you do not get anything in return, your message has been sent to numerous prospective consumers and many who were unaware about this aghast service issues from skoda. I have alteast counted 20 prospective consumers who were going to buy a skoda but have decided against it purely basis this thread.

Unless Skoda does something about your case i can only see the no of people who are turning anti-skoda going up.

once again kudos to your spirit.
Cheers,
AC

Default Skoda...2 bad

guys...these skoda people never had any reputation in first place. Heard that one of their premium dealers in gurgaon used to retain an alloy wheel of spare tyre (Stepney) from all new cars informing cmrs that it doesnt come from the co. Hence 4 cars sold means 1 spanking new set of alloys. Tch Tch Tch....too bad.

Best wishes are with all skoda customers. Nice car from a poor company and surely pretty badly managed.

THIS IS REALLY GETTING THE WORST OF ME. Guys , we really need to do the "PINK CHADDI" to Skoda - and really SOON.
Ya, we can do the pink chaddi to them, send them grease stained wiping cloths or something!

Oh, just saw that this skoda story has also been put up on All News, Videos, & Images. This has a global reach and will do wonders for the apt publicity of the Skoda brand

Default What Car

This is the What Car helpdesk coverage.

@rm_arjuna: Have put it up, so you dont need to look for it!

Thanks


The best part is that WHATCAR took credit for the 50% waiver without so much as a By Your Leave!

"Skoda has asked him to send the car back to the workshop for satisfactory paint..."

I asked this Mr.Modi what he would do when I sent it back, he said "Jidhar pe pehla colour dikh raha hai, usse touch up kar denge"

!!!!

how about a signboard at malls requesting all skoda owners to join a signature campaign to support Harish & others as well to safeguard their own future interest since they may also become victims .
