“I bought this car for ₹25 lakhs but the mistake I made was that I didn’t buy two donkeys along with the car at that time.”- a very frustrated Skoda Octavia, from Ludhiana, owner told ANI.
Since he bought the car on 19th march 2015, it has given him “some or the other problem every day till date.” Therefore, he revamped his Skoda with two donkeys, each bearing the brand name Skoda Octavia on their heads, to pull it.
So much to make an impact on the allegedly deaf ears of the Skoda company. He listed all the unreasonable responses regarding a new problem each day from the company.
3 parts of the suspension have worn out and the Skoda people deny having it covered under the warranty even though the document says every part is covered under it, says the owner who emanated exasperation with every word he uttered.
The other problems include a dysfunctional music system that needs a certain CD to be transported in from Germany to start working, sound-making breaks and a battery that died without notifying him leaving him stranded in a market.
“Company ko jab yehi nahi pata k gaadi ko battery konsi chahiye toh woh kya bech rahe hain (what are they selling if they don’t even know the kind of battery the car requires)?” he asks in response to the company’s response to the dead battery which allegedly was that they had earlier fixed a small battery whereas the car needed a bigger one.
The car would only function, according to the company, if this gentleman would get its suspension (which falls out of the warranty) checked and rectified. Well, perhaps they do it now that this person has found his solution in two donkeys. Perhaps this move moves the Skoda people to take action if they want to spare themselves further embarrassment.
Watch his rant here:
BTW, what do you think of his ingenious idea?
