Congrats on your new car Harish.

Toyotas have been a lot more reliable cars as compared to Skodas here, and I have only heard good things about Toyota service.

Hope what you get out of Altis erases your memories of what was dished out by Skoda.

Wish you a very happy motoring.

Congrats on the new car Harish. Looks like you have bought the car fro mthe best After sales and service provider in India(Toyota). Enjoy the car as you should, after paying 10 lacs for it.

Congrats on the nice choice harish, Totyota is indeed a totally opposite service experience as of Skoda. You'll actually be flattered many times.

Congratulations Harish! You've gone from one end of the spectrum to the other. Skoda may offer the worst after-sales in India, but you now have Toyota which offers amongst the best. This car is built to last and will easily serve you well for atleast 10 years.

I'm really happy for you (and your car-crazy family). How about sharing some pictures with us?

Toyota is known world over for its reliability. I am making a generic statement here. One of my friend did drive his Corolla for nearly 175000 miles. And he did not have any surprises what so ever. I am sure that you would have much peaceful drive and a better experience than Skoda.

All the best with the new car and also with the Skoda tussle.

Congratulations on your new car. The Toyota Altis is a very competent car, and the service is top class. I'm sure you're going to have a nice time with Toyota.

Please do post some pics and a detailed review of your "sports" car.
