Hello Hemanth,

I wanted to upgrade the headlight performance on my 2016 TDI LE. The car has the factory fitted projectors, I wanted to upgrade to a Blue-White set up. From your update, if I manage to get the Skoda guys to swap the set up the warranty will not stand void?

Thanks
Ashwin

Hi All,

I am facing a very peculiar problem with my Rapid. The suspension behavior is not consistent. On some days the suspension feels very stiff and on some days the suspension feels very soft. I prefer the suspension to be stiff but this inconsistent behavior is not to my liking. I have checked the air pressure whenever the the suspension felt smooth but there was no reduction in the air pressure.

The suspension firms up whenever I drive the car a little aggressively. But it looses its stiffness in few days.

Could you all help me to troubleshoot this issue ?

Hello all, I have covered about 30,000 Kms in my Rapid Dsg which was bought in June 2016. The car is mainly used for out station travel to my village areas ( Mumbai to Sindhudurg ) 4 to 5 times a year and for leisure purpose on weekends. The ownership has mostly been uneventful barring a replacement of steering mounted control button which broke on its own. I am consistently getting a fuel economy of 19 to 22 kms a litre on tankful measurement basis which I am very satisfied about. The car has held up pretty well even after having seen the worst monsoon dreaded roads of Konkon on several occasions.

I love my car to bits and would like to keep her as long as possible. The only thing which worries me is the long term reliability of the Dq200 dry clutch gearbox. I drive the car with utmost care and make sure to shift to manual mode where I feel the car's slipping the second gear specially in bumper to bumper traffic. I would like to know if any special maintenance needs to be done to take care of the gear box at any specific service interval to preserve and extend its life.

I would also like to know whats the highest mileage covered by our fellow members on their beloved Rapid/Vento Tdi Dsg's.This would really help me have a sign of relief. Thanks You.

Hello, Sir I have the same observation in my Rapid as well, when driven aggressively the car feels planted and stable however when driven at lower speeds on the same undulations the car pitches and bounces especially the rear suspension when going over sudden undulations.
