Well there's the solution. OP, please post a photo of the bill or of any other document summarising the problem. This is not to say that we disbelieve you. It is merely to make sure we're not being spammed. If nothing comes out, we can assume this is a poor effort by a competitor to ruin the Superb's reputation.

Hi Gagananand,

Guess you should give more details about your Skoda. If you need help from the forum, it is only fair that you should give in all details like the dealer you bought the car from, the car number, Invoice copy, etc., etc.,

I am sure you should not have any problem in giving all the details so that we could Skoda

Gagan,

Get them to write all the problems on the job card - scan and put it up here. Then check the bill they give you (they will even if it reads Rs 0) and check if they have done what all they wrote in the job card.

And yes - tell them firmly that whatever parts they are changing they have to change in your presence. It will cost you a couple of days but try and be there. Take pictures - it's your car afterall.

I can see several auto forums including the ACI forum where dirty tricks are played by competitors making fake accounts to bash each other. We cannot and should not let T-Bhp become another battle field.
Completely agreed.
I think it would be better if the OP can post some pics or more authentic information regarding the troubled parts.
I believe this is the first reported complaint on forum for new superb.

Also you can check and join in the movement- http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...its-users.html (Team-BHP stands for the TRUTH. But Skoda wants to “instigate” Team-BHP and its users!)

A copy of the bill of repairs carried out?
A pic of the car stalled on the highway in the middle of the road?
An a/c report of the temperatures recorded in the rear vents?
It happened in my friends Maruti Swift. The complete a/c system was replaced when the dealer saw that the required temps were not registered. I have also got the same thing done in my WagonR and lancer to make sure the a/c works good.

PS: It's high time team-bhp mods take a positive action. Such details should be mandated for every person who has a problem with his car. It's hardly takes that much time compared to the effort other members will pitch in to get him the right solution, spares, dealer reputation, scam alert etc. I see too many Skoda complaints to be true. Skoda has always been known for its reliability in the past. I do agree to many of the complaints posted here but when some people go all out in the first few posts itself, something is fishy.(not that I doubt this person). Skoda Hardly sells so many cars to not notice the faults and rectify them quickly. How come we dont see such faults in other countries while the parts used are the same?

I belong to Ahmedabad where people are usually reserved and buy a car on reference. If a skoda breaks down, you ought to take my word that word spreads like fire in this 6th largest city of India. Dealers will have to shut shop. I am yet to hear a single complaint in Ahmedabad.

Also if the case is so bad, I wonder why the papers have not covered it.

Nice recovery vehicle you got there, gagan.
- sell your superb ASAP
- buy this recovey vehicle
- contact all other superb/laura owners (i cant say that about the Octy) and inform them about your new venture
- soon you will be making a lot of money, so you can buy a Toyota.
- live happily forever.

I somehow feel we need to do a lot more than what we are doing now for the sake of Skoda owners. Is there a way to start an off-forum propaganda? Just a thought- this is way too much issues from one car maker, who either do not price their cars right, or does not care what their dealers do, and most important- sell unreliable cars for a huge premium!

May be a silent protest with placards outside various dealers after obtaining due police permission for the same. May be, the meets could be organised around this concept !

Default Another lemon!

This is the pits. Car has been giving electrical/electronic problems from day 1 (almost) and they fiddle around till the damn thing goes into some kind of a lockdown mode.

Any members here from Aurangabad? If so - please give Thomas etc. from Skoda driving instructions so they can just drive off the nearest cliff and save themselves and several other innocent customers the agony of a prolonged death dive.

@ Skoda: If you have to kill yourself, do it in style.

Cheers,
