Engine is off which means almost all lights in the console would light up which is normal in any car. Is it switched on even after engine is on?

Looks like the car isn't started? All warning lamps get displayed before the ignition is cranked - so that's fine.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

Just saw another Skoda in orange colour being loaded on to a flat bed truck in front of legislative assembly Trivandrum. Was in a hurry on the way to vaccination center so couldn't cick pics. Owner was standing nearby the tow truck. Don't know if it is due to the EPC issue or not.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

New issues are due to settings changes and can be done at the customer's home.

There are no further breakdowns, Zac Hollis reaffirms.

His tweets on the EPC fiasco remind me of this Calvin classic:

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

I was just wondering if Taigun is also facing such issues.
Anyone in the know might throw some light.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

Looks like there are no new breakdowns getting reported. That is a good news. Request anyone who report issues from now on to specify whether their car is a NORMAL or ROBUST EDITION.

I think there is a conversation on that topic in the below thread.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

Now a Volkswagen Taigun owner reports a breakdown. Hope it is not related to this EPC issue. Nevertheless, sad for a brand new car!

Didn't make sense to post more of the same without any major updates. However, few more issues were reported for the Kushaq over the last week.

Two cases this week, but both were not yet updated with the robust fuel pump -

One break down last week, which Skoda service attributed to a switch issue, but they also replaced the fuel pump voluntarily nevertheless.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

Skoda's April fools video is out early - promises peace of mind with a Kushaq.

The video begins with "Peace of mind means different things to different people". This proves beyond any reasonable doubt that marketing folks really do live in an alternate reality.



EDIT: As expected, comments are turned off.

It is a typo, It is Skoda want our piece of mind

If we buy a Kushaq now, our mind is going to be occupied with possible EPC issues.

I had a narrow escape (cancelled my booking at the last moment). My friend is still interested in Kushaq and I have asked him to wait for few more months.

Without the digital console, there is no room for confusion. Second reported case of Taigun EPC issue, at 651kms of ownership -

The other thing I asked was regarding the EPC error and he said for the Taigun this has been taken care from the first day of production.
Looks like Ashish Gupta's statement will get tested now.

Re: Skoda Kushaq breakdowns & problems

Really VW and Skoda ? As an existing Polo owner this is very disappointing and embarassing at the same time. Why is it so difficult to rectify this EPC issue? Or has localisation ruined the so called "German" engineering ?

Meanwhile Taigun and Kushaq right now

Looks like competitors started taking advantage of the situation. I received couple of messages from Honda sales person about Taigun EPC issue with pictures.

They misspelt Pieces.

On a related note, its one thing to take car company advertisements, but another thing to run an advertorial campaign like this squarely in the thick of such a major reliability controversy. Bad judgment call if you ask me.
