Aftersale is not that good. take an extended warranty.most of the parts are tested in cold conditions so replacement may be there. There are other service centres you can opt for one.Be aware of the problems give car for routine check ups it will be fine.

Once you buy a car priced upwards of 25 lakhs, be prepared to spend 30-40k for annual servicing! If you use the car judiciously and with care, no major issues will crop up . Mileage should not be a concern if you are buying a diesel version. Resale value of all high end cars is bad! If you buy it, you should hang on to it for 5-8 years and should drive atleast 10-12k kms. every year! Then only you will get back it's worth over the years!
Skoda has improved over a lot on machine & experience and plus there is a maintenance package from Skoda that takes out all the worries
When u want a high end don't think abt service cost
Octavia is a very good car no doubt... But if you are someone who loves driving than 1.8tsi is the best in the segment and the DSG AT is another advantage. If you are planning to buy, I guess the new model is on its way and might come in the market by next year
New model out...tsi dsg is a gem there are worries if long term issue with the dual clutch but not proven...so buy it ..you cant see the variant in its twin.
Is Octavia fine with the 155 clearance on spread breaker.Secondly what about water logging problem ?
