Skoda Kushaq Continues to Face EPC Error Even After Fuel Pump Replacement

  • Skoda Kushaq has suffered the EPC error ever since it was launched in the Indian market.
  • Skoda claimed that replacing the fuel pump with a more robust unit will remedy the issue.
  • However, owners have still encountered the issue after getting the new fuel pumps.

The EPC error has continued to haunt some owners of the Skoda Kushaq even after the fuel pump replacement. Kushaq is the mid-size SUV from the Czech carmaker that was introduced in our market with the aim of replenishing the declining sales of Skoda. To be fair, Kushaq has been able to do that. However, the EPC issue has persisted since the beginning. That said, Skoda did come up with an upgraded fuel pump that was changed in all vehicles free of cost. Also, it has ensured that the subsequent products in the form of Slavia sedan don’t have that issue. Surprisingly, though, we still hear about the reappearance of the dreaded EPC error once in a while.

Skoda Kushaq EPC Error Even After Fuel Pump Replacement

This information has been shared by the Kushaq owner on Skoda Owner’s page on Facebook. He mentions that he was stuck in the middle of the road when the EPC error caused the vehicle to stop. What is more bizarre is the fact that he already got the fuel pump replaced last year. Despite that, the issue has recurred. He had to take the service of Skoda RSA as the vehicle had to be towed away to the service centre.

The owner expresses particular disappointment because of the fact that the dealership officials have no clue of the cause. Moreover, they can’t guarantee that this won’t happen again. This is the main thing that is worrying a lot of people and keeping them from buying the Kushaq. Now, the owner is disgruntled and is confused as to who to ask whether or not this issue will recur. This is quite a precarious situation for a car owner to be in.
