Zac Hollis Promises To Solve The Skoda Slavia AC Issue

A certain Mohit Sharma shared a post on Facebook highlighting the issue of the AC. He owns Swift, Amaze and City which cool the cabin much better than the Slavia. The issue is severe when the AC is being operated in manual mode. Mohit explains that when the AC is set to around 22-23 degrees in manual mode, there is almost no cooling. Also, in the Auto mode, it is even worse. The AC keeps tripping for around 30-60 secs while operating and then starts automatically. He is facing this issue after just 4 days of ownership which makes it particularly disappointing for him.
