Skoda Kushaq Owner Gets EPC Error Every 400 km, 4 Faced Already!

Another Skoda owner reels under the frustration of going through the EPC error multiple times. Kushaq has brought with it an issue that the Czech carmaker just isn’t able to fix. It has been quite a long time since the first case of the EPC issue came forth. Ever since a ton of customers have shared their struggles with the same. However, Skoda still remains clueless about the solution to this problem. Skoda recommended that people get the new “robust” fuel pump but people continue to get stranded on the roads despite that. Here is yet another example of a Skoda owner facing the EPC error 4 times already.

The Skoda owner took to Facebook to share this information. He writes on the Skoda Kushaq Club page that he has faced the EPC error 4 times already. He also tells us the exact time interval; 383 km, 898 km, 1439 km and 1846 km. This is insane to think of a brand new car, top trim of which costs over Rs 20 lakh, on-road, to have this problem multiple times just before cloaking 1900 km. Things get even more bizarre when one comes to know that this is a product of VW Group in India which prides itself on being premium products with high-quality materials. Skoda Kushaq and VW Taigun are the next-gen SUVs for the Indian market based on an Indianised MQB A0 IN platform. These are the make or break products for the VW Group in our market. Not fixing this issue timely will cause a serious dent in the overall market share of these two brands which is already not in a healthy position.
