    I was travelling back from my cousins place in seawoods, navi mumbai with my family. Suddenly the car stopped at Sanpada signal on palm beach road. Got a bit scared as it is the busiest road. Tried cranking few times. No joy. Finally called up my cousin who owns a garage in Seawoods. His guy came in 30 minutes and helped to pull the car off road. Also came a Traffic policeman and fined me 100/- for blocking the traffic. The mechanic checked the fuel supply, battery and other basics as it was getting dark. No issue found. I asked him to tow the car to garage the next day and update me. I caught a cab and came back to mira road. Next day i received a call from my cousins garage. To my shock the timing belt was broken. He replaced that but the engine wouldn't start. Further checks confirmed that the engine head is also broken. I called up my regular part suppliers in Opera House and Kurla CST Road to enquire about the charge for a new and used engine head. For a new one it will cost me 10,000/- and for used one it is 4,000/- I was surprised to find that a whole engine will cost me 8,000/- at Kurla. Not sure what to do. Will changing the engine head solve the issue ? Does timing belt, if broken, damage engine head ? Other issues prior to this incidents were: 1. A strong fuel smell comes intermittently while driving. 2. At times car used to loose power and drag for few seconds and then run normally. 3. In traffic the car temperature used to go above 100 and it used to power off automatically. 4. Headlight bulb keeps blowing up everymonth. Things which I did to the car recently. 1. Radiator removed and cleaned thoroughly 2. Fuel tank removed and checked for any leaks 3. Alternator serviced and battery charged

    problems with skoda laura

    i had bought a skoda laura elegance on 26th april 2010. i stay out for about 6 to 7 months a year. however after about a year started having problems with my vehicle. first the hand brake did not operate properly. then i had problem with the high pressure disel pump and the cooling condensor which were replaced. in between had problems with the hand brake again which was again changed.after this had problems with engine and was told that the turbocharger was bad. this happened in feb 2012 which was again replaced in the vehicle in feb 2012. the vehicle had run only 14000 kms upto that time. in april 26th to be exact when i went again to the dealership the oil in the engine was only half a litre instead of almost 4.5 ltrs. now skoda says that since the vehicle came one day after the warranty had expired they will not replace the engine. in feb 2010 also the vehicle had only about half litre oil and i got the oil renewed and when the dealer checked the engine on his computer he said that all was good however within one day had problems with the turbocharger. i have since put up the case in the consumer forum and the vehicle is in the workshop since then. pls advise any further action.

    Toyota has given a confirmation for the GT 86 platform saloon; Will have 100 mm more wheelbase than the coupe. It could receive what Toyota calls the “keen-look” grille design that appears to replicate the shape of a Japanese Samurai sword. Engine will be the 2.0-liter 4-cyl engine a carryover from the coupe and produce 200 bhp to power the rear wheels. There could also be a Hybrid R variant that produces 250-270 bhp and will be 10-15 % more fuel efficient than the standard model. Also reports suggests that the new system will employ F1-style KERS tech, which can recover the car’s kinetic energy under braking and deliver it back to the rear wheels in short bursts Source

    Think twice before you give your car to Solitaire Honda (Mumbai) They have destroyed the enitre dashboard of my brand new car. This is how they returned my car after their free service. This cant be fixed, they have tried all cleaning solutions on it. And its not just me who is troubled by these guys, check the following links for their history. Post Edited: External Links removed.
