  1. Hi, I wanted to know how the Skoda 4 year service care works or even for that matter how does the annual service packages work? Considering that one starts using a Skoda vehicle and within the service period, it requires a part change, will Skoda do it for free? Or chances are that they will prolong the maintenance of the particular parts until the service contract is over so they can milk the customer later? And if as a customer we figured out that something is not working properly as it should be, will Skoda do the said repairs within the purview of the agreement? Anyone with experience on this can guide me on this please
  2. Hi, I'm looking to buy a car in the 15-20 lac range and my options are dwindling between Octavia, Jeep Compass and Corolla Altis. I do know that while there are two sedans and one SUV, I'm really okay with anything provided they meet my requirement which is mainly: After sales maintenance / service costs Drive quality after 4-5 years as I intend to keep it for a long term. My daily driving routine is just around 2-5 kms from home-work-home and I've been driving the Honda Civic since many years now and been in love with the ride, comfort, quality, maintenance and after sales service. I've owned a Chevrolet earlier and owning it was a pain! Any owners of the above cars (except Jeep of course) can shed light on what has been their experience owning these cars?
  3. Hi Ksgulyani, Thank you so much for your detailed response. It makes things more clear for me. I guess it's a given that we have to take some issues with Hyundai cars at face value given their lower pricing. They do have beautiful looking exteriors and interiors however, they do compromise somewhere and these knick-knacks make it more evident.
  4. Hi, I'm planning on buying Creta. Diesel or Petrol - undecided. My questions are primarily on the quality of exterior / interiors and drive experience. I've tried to find answers on the forum but guess my questions are a bit different. I own Verna (3 years old) and Honda Civic (7 years old). So my questions are a bit related to my experience using the same. 1. How is the interior material durability of Creta? Is it lasting enough for a long term buy? (My experience with Verna has been bad in terms of interior quality. The a/c vents knobs have all fallen off after 2.5 years, the handbrake on the Verna doesnt work as smoothly as it was at the begining. While Civic's has been excellent even after 7 years) 2. Is the front armrest comfortable enough to place left hand on while driving? Is it good enough for two people to place their arms on the armrest? 3. How comfortable are the seat belts of Creta? I've got trouble wearing Verna's seatbelts, it doesn't feel comfortable at all. 4. Do you feel comfrotable sitting on the driver's seat while driving? 5. How sturdy are the bumpers / exteriors of Creta in a bumper accident situation? (My Civic has been hit many times on the back, but the bumper just keeps going, while the one on Verna looks like it would fall of in a minor bumper accident too) 6. How good is the Creta on turns? Is it sturdy or does it feel like the car will roll sidewards on fast turns on highways? 7. How good is Creta on highways at high speeds? Is it smooth or feels jarry / rickety? 8. Any owners who own the car for 1 plus year - Does it feel creeky / rickety inside or does it feel rock solid as new in terms of noise from the interiors?
