I have been driving Skoda Rapid for about 6 months and want to share my experience about its ownership. I have driven it for about 2500 km and find some good as well as bad things about it. As of now I am quite happy with the diesel engine of the car and in fact this is the best thing about Rapid that I want to share with all of you. But before the good part, let me get off my head the one problem which has been puzzling me for some time.

A problem I started feeling right off the start is about the stability of Rapid especially when I drive it at high speeds.  I feel that at high speeds the car becomes unstable and I have to apply the brakes to get it back in control. I am not able to understand whether it is some quality or mechanical defect but I am not happy with it.

Similarly being a music buff, I like the audio system of my car which actually has got a lot of functions. Starting from the CD player, it has the functions of reading SD cards, have the AUX-IN facility along with FM utility. The speakers too are having good bass and treble combination and its my best companion on long drives.

One thing that instantly clicked with me in case of Rapid is its performance. I got the hints of its good performance in the test drive itself though driving it the first time after buying it on highway at speed of 148 km/h was a really an enjoyable experience for me.

Reversing the in heavy traffic Rapid bothers me especially when I am driving alone. I am not able to see enough at the back sitting inside and the rear glass is not very good to make me able to see the rear view. I have got my bumper scratched up twice while parking Rapid I come out of car, thoroughly inspect the parking space and then sit again to par it. It is mandatory because there is no other way to do as company hasn’t provided any sensors as well as camera with the help of which I can see what's behind the car.

Rapid's rear seat is really wide and there are loads of room and I bet that your family too will be happy with the space. Even I don’t feel sandwiched between two persons when we three sit abreast at the back. Though there is ample width at the back seat there is quite a hump which makes it difficult to sit in the middle. If there was no hump, the seat would be even more comfortable.

The thing I like the most about my Skoda Rapid is that we can adjust the front seat from behind with the help of a lever. And the way this lever operates is also very simple and easy. So there is no more fighting in telling the front person to move has seat forward. I think it is just wonderful and amazing thing to have this feature.
