Skoda Fabia / Engine defect

1 India Review updated:

My car SKODA FABIA PETROL., less than five months old and run only 3100 Km was broken down on Haridwar-Delhi high way on 21 May 2009, with no petrol emission, while I was over-taking. I narrowly escaped an accident. The dealer (Sai Automobile, New Delhi) told me on the phone that Skoda Fabia petrol has this basic defect of heating up. I should wait for 2 hours for it to cool down and then drive back to Delhi. That means, they are selling the public cars with technical defect, which not only means financial loss but danger to life. The car suddenly loses its petrol emission while driving.
Mr. Sanghania of Sai Automobile has told me to deal with the company directly and gave me a telephone number and email of the regional office in Gurgaon [protected]). No body ever picks up this telephone. The local representative of SKODA, Mr. Agrawal wrote to me that the car stopped due to dirty petrol. What a ridiculous statement to hide the grave technical defect in the car!
The workshop of the dealer located in Noida ‘repaired’ the car on 23 May and gave me back on the 24. They used up nearly 10 litres of petrol from the car and also refused to give me in writing what was wrong and what they have done to the car. On the paper they gave me from the workshop, it is written: ‘Sublet Operation’. All these irregular practices are evidence by themselves that the SKODA company is trying to cover up something.
Main company in Aurangabad has not replied to my several faxes and registered letter sent more than a month ago.
The car heats up even after driving 10 Kilometers This is a KILLER CAR.
Buyer beware, Do not buy SKODA unless you want to commit suicide.
I want to bring to the attention of the GOVERNMENT OF INDIA, that such cheat companies should be thrown out of the country. They are here to cheat us and do not abide by the laws of the land by honouring Guarantee and responsibility of the product they are selling.
