Skoda Rapid 1.0 TSI has been launched this year and it seems to be catching everyone’s attention with the entry-level variant pricing. This directly takes on compact sedans making it a great value for money. The question that many of us have unanswered is – if it is worth considering or buying a Skoda Rapid for two primary concerns:

  1. The model is about 10 years old
  2. Skoda has a not-so-good reputation for maintenance cost

The total cost of each service is mentioned here. However, there is no mention of any other service parts cost.

We did check the cost on the website – but there is no mention of any of them in the regular service aspect. So, this is a miss here.
