Octavia 2004 huh?
Family sports wala.
That's interesting. No one keeps skodas that long.
I bought it used from a friend three years back. I may or may not keep it going forward, depending on what happens to my Fortuner/Pajero Sport search.

Yes, it does indeed take a lot to maintain it. It is a purpose built machine, as long as you respect that purpose, it’ll not disappoint you.

That's the reply i want to do to people who hate Skoda's and VW's.
Just because they take a lot to maintain, they can't be under-rated. just like you said, they are built for a ppurpose and we gotta respect that.
Sirji, last line sunke mazaa aa gaya!!!

The pleasure that you derive when driving these cars is unmatched. And that’s probably the price we pay for the pleasure.

Well said,
I do not mind little more Maintenance, Little more cost when we get heaps of performance is return.
What, However, I hate is how some brands treat their customers as garbage. Unfortunately, Skoda/ VW comes on top here.
One of the recent issues that have been happening with our forum member-
Condensation Issue in Headlights
Yes, that’s something the European OEMs need to work on, especially in India. While I love their cars, by no means I approve of their malpractices.
Most of the cases, incapable service network, immoral leadership and over-confidence of these OEMs and their service centres that a common customer doesn’t understand much about cars leads to such situations. Thankfully, with forums like this, the customer is becoming aware of such incidents and are better equipped in dealing with them.

Thanks,
Yogiraj.

By the way, I am looking for a used Toyota Fortuner or Pajero Sport in Pune, Mumbai, Nashik etc. (Still confused though between both of these). How do I get in touch with fellow members for this? Can I post my requirements anywhere on the forum?
I don’t know, may be since I am a new member, but I am not able to send private messages to other members. What’s the trick? Am I allowed to send messages after fulfilling certain criteria?

Thanks,

Yogiraj.

If you have any input on skoda headlight issue, do reply on the Original thread for @akop.4040 above.
As we members have exhausted most of our options.
