In some interesting news, a certain Rajnikant recalls his horrendous experience with a number of EPC errors with his brand new Skoda Kushaq. The Kushaq owners are complaining left and right about the relentless EPC issue in the mid-size SUV. It has been months since this issue came to light but Skoda has been unable to provide a permanent solution. This is very uncharacteristic of the Czech carmaker who boasts of manufacturing quality products and has been quite confident about the work they have put in to make the ownership experience of Skoda cars better in India. It recommended Kushaq owners to get a more “robust” fuel pump. But that made no difference as people still got the EPC error even with the new fuel pump. This is one such case as well.
Rajnikant Faces EPC Errors In Kushaq
The owner of Skoda Kushaq shares his experience on Facebook. He tells that he has gone to the service centre 4 times in just a couple of months to get the EPC error fixed. However, the staff and technicians at the service centre are unaware of what to do. They had even kept the SUV under observation for around 10 days. But the problem continues. On top of that, they have not even been able to fix the rattling noise from the cabin. They lubricated the cabin to get rid of the rattling noise but it started again within a couple of days. This reflects the incompetency of the technicians of the Skoda service centre. Skoda has unveiled the Slavia which is the mid-size premium sedan. We hope that before launching it, they will fix the other issues with the service. Otherwise, it is likely that people would avoid going for any Skoda product.
The Skoda Kushaq has been on sale in two engine variants – 1.0-litre TSI and 1.5-litre TSI EVO. The smaller engine outputs a maximum power of 115 PS and a peak torque of 175 Nm, while the larger unit offers a maximum power of 150 PS and a peak torque of 250 Nm. The transmission options for the former include a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed torque converter automatic, while the latter comes with a 6-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The prices of the Kushaq start at Rs 10.79 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 17.99 lakh, ex-showroom. The rivals of the Kushaq include Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, VW Taigun and the recently launched MG Astor.
