The Skoda Slavia is a mid-size sedan that accepts models such as the Honda City and Hyundai Verna, but the latest quality issues in the cabin are worrying signs.
In this short video, the owner of Skoda Slavia shows the quality issues in the interior of the new car. When Skoda released the midsize sedan, it barely got rid of the terrible EPC error at Kushaq. However, since the start of delivery, some owners of “Slavia” have been posting videos on social networks showing the poor quality of materials used in the cabin. This latest video shows all aspects of this issue.

Skoda Slavia quality issues
The owner of “Slavia” shows creaking sounds on the panel next to the AC console, next to the steering wheel, the fittings of the textile insert on the control panel vibrate, and the owner scratches the hard plastic areas on the control panel. The condition of the AC outlets is particularly striking, as they appear to be broken. The lights on the roof also make a sound when the driver touches them. The area behind one of the AC outlets seems to barely hold it. The roof liner, which is attached to the A-pillars, looks like it is torn, which makes the cabin look worn.

In general, as Skoda calls it, many of these issues in the car in the premium mid-size sedan segment are not satisfactory. The price of Slavia in the former exhibition hall ranges from 10.69 million rupees to 17.79 million rupees, but the quality of the fit and finish inside the Slavic salon is very poor. The owner posted the video on Facebook and appointed Zack Hollis to inform him of the incident. He asks Zack to look into it and let the engineering team focus on the quality control of their vehicles. It should be noted that it requires a permanent solution, rather than a simple repair, such as fixing the cabin with double tape.
