Skoda Kushaq facing a faulty fuel pump issue
It has 2 months since the launch of Skoda KUSHAQ and Several customers have already noted a problem with the Electric Power Control (EPC) unit within a few days of the vehicle delivery. Customers have been experiencing problems such as warning lights on EPC, loss of power, and even the engine cutting off completely. Skoda promptly take notice of the problem and after investigation, they came to know about the problem of a faulty fuel pump.
In order to resolve the solution, Skoda has assured that they will be replacing the fuel pump with a ‘more robust unit’ on all the models that have already been delivered to customers, including the ones who have not been affected, as a precautionary measure.
- The replacement will be carried out free of cost at authorized service centres.
- Customers will be contacted individually as and when dealerships have stocks of the new fuel pump.
- All new Kushaqs that are being dispatched has already been fitted with the updated fuel pump.
Zac Hollis, (Head of sales and marketing at Skoda India), tweeted “We have a new, more robust fuel pump to be fitted to Kushaq. Dealers will contact customers once they have stocks.”
This fuel pump is not robust at all. My car broke down again after getting the fuel pump replaced and that too on the hills. I am a die hard fan of Skoda but enough is enough. I have tweeted you with more details. pic.twitter.com/Zg53DuHLGN
