[Resolved] Skoda Auto India — Skoda Rapid fuel injector problem
Aurangabad, Maharashtra, India
Hi, My Skoda Rapid Ambition 1.6 TDI, bought in JAN 2012, recently had an issue of a blinking "Emission and coil" indicator, in between a drive. When it was taken to the service station SGA cars in Coimbatore, they diagnosed and the issue seems to be with Fuel injectors. The service station has informed us that the cost of 1 such fuel injector as Rs.23000/- and since it is outside our warranty, we may have to bear the cost. After i checked online, i found that there were many vehicles with the same problem, which definitely raises a question on the reliability of SKODA RAPID CARS. Worst is they dont say what is the root cause and how to prevent the same failure of other injectors and if in case it happens the cost of the replacing all injectors will go above Rs100, 000 which will make me think twice before purchasing any Skoda or VW vehicle in future. In my opinion this is a wrong design of injector for our country, which they are making us pay. ITS A PERFECT CASE FOR A RECALL, but they are avoiding it. Since i purchased this car i have had many issues relating to Fuel system, in JAN 2013 my feed pump failed and luckily it was in warranty and it was replaced, also we had heavy injection noise (Knocking) and when i mentioned it to the service team, they said a software update has been done and it will not come again. But till today, the same has not gone and offlate i started thinking that im complianing for a non issue and left it back.
