It might have been a long time but Skoda Kushaq owners are still struggling with the EPC error without any tangible solution.
Yet another Skoda Kushaq owner reports an EPC error with no reliable solution. Kushaq was the first product under VW Group’s India 2.0 initiative with Indianised MQB A0 IN platform which had over 90% localisation. However, that might have resulted in this EPC error that a lot of Kushaq owners had faced. Skoda claimed that the issue was resolved by replacing the fuel pump and using high-octane (XP95) fuel, but many people are getting the error even after that.

Skoda Kushaq Owner Gets No Solution For EPC Issue
A certain Harish Krishnan posted on Skoda Kushaq Owners’ Club page on Facebook describing his ordeals with the mid-size SUV. He has suffered this issue three times within 8 months of ownership. Last time, he was stranded with his family in the middle of the highway after the EPC error popped up and the car refused to start. The Road Side Assistance service took 6 hours to reach him. He owns the 1.0-litre version with automatic transmission.

Having sent the vehicle to the service centre brought no relief as the technicians are unable to offer a permanent solution. They have already changed the fuel pump in the Kushaq once and the owner used the XP95 high-octane fuel but the issue refuses to go away. This is a precarious situation for the owner to be in. This makes owning a Kushaq utterly unreliable as one could simply get stranded in the middle of nowhere without any fault of his/her own.

He emailed the higher authorities at Skoda but go no response. Finally, he had to write an email to Zac Hollis but still hasn’t heard anything from him. Needless to say, this has left him disappointed and frustrated. The service centre is offering him the SUV back asking him to come again when the issue crops up again. He refuses to take the vehicle back unless the issue has been permanently fixed, and rightly so. We can only hope that Skoda develops a proper permanent solution to this unfortunate issue so that people could feel more confident about buying the Kushaq.
