After a long time, Skoda Kushaq has registered an EPC error yet again in spite of running on new fuel pump and 97 octane petrol
A Skoda Kushaq owner shares a terrible experience of his SUV showing the EPC error near the last village before Siachen base camp. Of all the places this could’ve occurred, the treacherous terrains of the Himalayas are not the ideal place. Skoda had worked hard to eradicate this issue from the Kushaq by asking the owners to replace the fuel pump with a more robust unit. It helped a lot of people but every once in a while, there is a case where the EPC issue crops up.

This happened somewhere near the last village before #Siachen basecamp. And FYI, my car was fitted with the so-called robust fuel pump.#Skoda #SkodaIndia #MonteCarlo #Kushaq@SkodaIndia @SkodaIndia pic.twitter.com/S5wqUhplGg

Skoda Kushaq EPC Error In Siachen
It must be mentioned here that the other models based on this new MQB A0 IN platform like the VW Taigun or Skoda Slavia didn’t suffer this problem. It was only the initial few batches of the Kushaq that encountered this issue. It could have been due to the low octane fuel. But Skoda never really shared the exact cause of this issue. In this particular case, a certain Arjun Singh, who is the owner of this Kushaq mentions that he had already replaced the fuel pump and was travelling with the more robust unit. Furthermore, he always uses 97-octane petrol. We can only hope that this is an isolated incident and the saga doesn’t continue again.
