| Dear Moderators,
I saw some comments saying that some of the items in the bill are repeated. We had a similar accident when our Skoda Rapid collided with a big stray dog on the highway (attached pics). In the attached bill, there is an item no.18 called ‘CHARGE AIR COOLER’. After searching, I found that this is the intercooler.
Does the Skoda Rapid HAVE TWO intercoolers? I have tried solving this query in many places, but with no luck. Is this a similar condition like the OP of the Mercedes thread that, as we were claiming insurance, the service center made some arrangement with the insurance company to buy an extra intercooler?
Your valuable comments on this will be highly appreciated.
When this accident happened, Sreeraj was positioned abroad. The dealer played this trick on his parents who wouldn’t really know too much about cars.
Ironically, Sreeraj adds:
|This bill with two intercoolers is available in the Skoda system (mySkoda app)!!|
He goes on to say:SS-Traveller says:He adds:
| Got under a Rapid diesel to check – there’s just the one intercooler, not 2 units (especially with the same part number).
If this is the final bill, Skoda continues to uphold its reputation as the biggest scamster among all automobile manufacturers in India.
|Usually, the insurance company is careful about such things and will not approve.|
So, was the insurance company acting in collusion with the Skoda dealer? Why am I not surprised they picked the most expensive part on the list to charge twice? There is NO CHANCE that this would have passed multiple levels at the dealership & insurance company….if it wasn’t intentional.
Marikar Motors is no longer a Skoda dealership. But that doesn’t take away from this scam happening DURING their tenure as an authorised outlet. Does Skoda monitor its dealerships at all, or do they have a free hand to fleece customers as they please? We heard once that a customer paid money for a Skoda and didn’t get a car (related thread). Now, they are fitting two intercoolers in Rapids .
A reminder to all of us to CHECK THE BILL before paying up.
