Skoda / Substandard Tyres

1 India

Dear Sir,

I purchased a Skoda Fabia in the month of Feb 20o8. My car is driven 3500 kms. Last week, while returning home from Pune to Mumbai on the expressway, my front side tyre burst. I replaced the same with the spare and when I went to repair the tyre thinking it was a punchture, I was informed that my tyre had bursted. The tyre dealer checked my other tyres and informed me that all my tyres were of substandard quality and had bubbles on them, so it is unsafe to drive the car on any highway or expressway.
I immedaitely went to the car dealer (Autograph India, Mumbai) and informed them of the same. They inspected all the tyres and also agreed that all the tyres had bubbles and need to be replaced. I was then asked by them to get intouch with Skoda India in Ahmedabad, who would help me.
I approached Skoda India and informed them of the same. They took my complaint on the phone and informed me that they will get back to me.
I have just one car and purchased it this car after saving alot in the past few years. Am extremely concerned as I am not seeing a positive indication from Skoda India and I feel that I have become a pray of substandard quality and fooled into purchasing an expensive car.

Hope someone from your end can help me resolve this.
