Dear Experts,

Please help me out i had tested Skoda Fabia and not VW Polo. Both are having same 3 pot engine chruning out same power adn almost same mileage. Now the cost of Fabia is less as compared to polo but feature wise Fabia is ahead. Build wise both are robust. I am looking for Petrol version VW POLO COMFORTLINE AND SKODA FABIA AMBIENTE. Expert opinion is required in term of maintenance and i need to keep car for 8-10 yrs.

Dear Rajan,

Both these brands from one mother company i.e. VW, so maintenance wise both are almost identical whereas POLO is much specious then FABIA as well as having good aerodynamic shape.
So recommending you to go for POLO.

If the choice is between POLO and Fabia then Polo is more recent and Fabia has not sold many and styling is dated.So my choice is POLO.

Fabia is solid and spacious. I have the Ambiente model since 2010 and it has lots of thoughtful features. I dont know much about Polo but I heard rear leg space is less.Ground clearance may be a deciding factor so if you travel on rough roads, go for Polo.

Hi,
As mentioned above, maintenance would be almost similar considering cost of spares.Performance of both are good.To select one, VW Polo would be better in terms of newness,styling.

DEar Rajeev,

Rajeev Please share ur experience of skoda fabia for the past year. Since you are saying abt the ground clearance which is 10mm less than polo and in general terms it works out tobe 0.5 inch. so that wont be a problem in general. Apart from this what other factors should i consider and u have faced. REgarding servicing and maintenance any issues faced by you Rajeev and lastly where r u based.

Dear Shankar,

How much high percent is maintenance cost of skoda and polo in comparison to maruti swift.
 

Posted: 2301 day(s) ago

Hi,
Considering spares costs the maintenance of Skoda Fabia and Polo could be on higher side say by around 15 to 20 percent.

Rajan
Dear Shankar,

Since the maintenance cost will be 15-20 percent more but then quality of spares will also be good so it will requires less maintenance then. i suppose. Correct me if i am wrong.

Hi,
Maintenance is the general term used for knowing cost of ownership.The scheduled maintenance ie service carried out at scheduled intervals is termed as preventive maintenance.If the quality of vehicle is good then preventive maintenance would be bit less.However the cost of ownership includes cost of spares such as replacement of broken outer rear view mirror, accident repair such as broken front or rear bumpers etc.In case of accident repairs the cost of repairs includes labour charges,painting charges and spares cost(though it can be claimed under insurance,we are indirectly paying in terms of premium and directly paying things not covered under insurance).
In general when we mention about overall maintenance, it includes all parameters.

dear shankar,

Thanx for the info. but people are saying maintenance of skoda is higher than polo . if i go by your details then the accidental maintenance is much higher in polo and skoda in comparison to maruti vehicles. so taking that in to consideration kindly let me know from among swift/polo/skoda which vehicles should one go for .

Hi,
Polo being still new to Indian roads, there are no much complaint and feed backs about major repairs of Polo.However there is considerable feedback on Fabia with respect to ownership.
In general if maintenance is main constraint then Swift would be better choice for comparatively cheaper price, availability of service centers and hence reduced transportation in case of brake down etc.

Rajan
how is the feed back regarding fabia since i am much more interested in fabia and polo in comparison to swift.
please reply in detail regarding fabia as skoda people are giving 50k discount on fabia ambiente model. for this month your reply will be helpful to me in mkaing decission. Since new car wont be requiring maintenance for 3-4 yrs. what is the cost of owner ship of fabia after that

dear Experts,

no updates from your side.

Hi,
Sorry for late reply.As you are more interested in Fabia and Fabia is a well proven for its performance,features and comfort, it would be worth going for the same.The maintenance cost could be around 10k per service and can vary depending upon parts changed.

Rajan
dear shiva,

how abt polo maintenance cost per service then since fabia maintenance is expensive. Also heard that maruti vehicle start doing khad khad and chi chi after 2-3 yrs. If this is true then is that because of build quality.

Why settle for a 3 pot when you can get a 4 pot diesel of superior technology from FIAT. Just take a test drive of the Punto and you will be pleasantly surprised. Their multijet engine is a gem. And maintenence wise the service interval of Punto is 15k kms. No other car manufacturer in India can give that. FIAT is a class apart
