Having 5 years of ownership experience of Skoda Rapid in Bangalore, I am qualified to answer this question. My experience hasn't been so bad with service. Once, despite my appointment, I was made to wait almost for an hour to be attended by a Service advisor. And when I got a call from Skoda Mumbai for Service feedback, I told the same. After that the service center made me a VIP Customer and made sure they took extra care of me and my car. Things have changed considerably in Skoda service centers since 2–3 years. At least in Bangalore, the service centers look premium (talking about Tafe Access). Their staff keeps changing, that's one issue and most service advisors are not so experienced of late (earlier they used to be). But I won't complain about bad workmanship, or job not done, or overcharging for spares etc. I didn't deal with any major engine/gearbox issue though. In fact even before they made me a VIP Customer, except for that one time delay in attending to me (it was a Monday morning and there were too many vehicles as some campaign was running), I didn't face any issues. Their protocols are quite rightly placed for a premium car. They have a good lounge for waiting customer and customers are treated quite well there. Never faced any billing issue either. One thing to note is, the German Brands offload their entire service to dealer and it's service center. The company doesn't seem to have a high degree of control on these dealers and service centers, unlike Honda or Hyundai. So basically you are only as well served as the dealer wants to serve you. Also these cars don't seem to have a centralised service history across dealers, which is terribly shitty, almost stone age. Also, most Skoda parts are priced similar to other cars in this segment, except the ones that belong to Engine and Transmission (the costly ones are imported from Germany etc). So unless you have an engine or gearbox problem, you won't spend a fortune to maintain these cars. And yes, as others have mentioned, their network in North is very small. And they are bad in marketing. Even down south, their sales representatives don't look as motivated their Hyundai or Honda counterparts. If you can shell out a bit extra, you can for for Volkswagen which has almost everything same (every Skoda car has an equivalent Volkswagen car. Like: Rapid => Vento ; Octavia => Jetta; Karooq => T-Roc ; Kodiaq => Tiguan All space). You get the same quality for a much better dealer and service network. Although in terms of looks, Skoda makes lot more beautiful cars and slightly more highyway worthy). However, for my last 1.5 years of owning Volkswagen Vento, I can say that Tafe Access Skoda provided better service than all the 3 service centers of Volkswagen I went to. So yes, number of service centers is a problem in Skoda. But otherwise in South and West India, I doubt if there is any other generic issue.
I would advise against bringing a foreign car into the US if its just a mass produced, medium priced car - cars are relatively cheap in the US so paying a premium to bring in a used car might not be such a good idea. Anyway, there are many VW’s here in the states, your car might be a US model under a different name, I’d do some research there. Likely the parts are available if you know the right model number - the problem with ordering parts from a store is that they normally work with the US based models and have no idea about foreign models, this can be a problem since there are slight differences in parts for different years, so it might be an issue to get a replacement part. Alternatively, you can order the parts from overseas (Germany?) but that might be expensive for heavier items. Other problems you might experience would be the computer controlled parts of the car, engine, transmission, etc - can you be sure that these are compatible with the average equipment in a US repair shop? Does your car comply with the local/state emissions standards? If you are intending to settle in California, that can be a huge problem which will prevent you from registering your car when you get here. Depending on where you settle, there are foreign car shops over the country, especially in the states of Florida, Texas and California ( in the more populous areas). You might have to pay dearly for certain services since the mechanic will need to learn on the job if he’s not familiar with the problems you are presenting to him. So, unless you have a strong emotional attachment to the particular car, I’d say you are heading for a world of hurt.
Ask the person who owns a VW Vento with the manual transmission not working at 10,000 miles. It has been at the car dealership in India for over 2 months. They cannot give a time estimate when the car is going to be fixed. Another person has the same car and the turbo charger is defective at 10,000 miles. Internet search “A case of unreliable Volkswagen Vento’s (2010 - 2012) …”. Internet search “Here’s why Volkswagen cars are so popular”. Plastic door handles inside some VW cars are constantly breaking and need to be replaced several times. I personally would never buy any Volkswagen vehicle in the USA. The ones made in Germany are better made.
I have a Volkswagen vento. It is the top end model with the alloy wheels. So I was worried about the wheel thefts. the attendant at the showroom told me about four lock nuts that are made specifically on the base of the engine and chassis number by the company in Germany. I agreed to go for it and they sent my engine and chassis number to the company against which they delivered to me 4 customised nuts, one each to be secured in each wheel. These nuts cannot be undone by any spanner or any tool except the one given to me by the company. If somebody tries a fresh act of stealing my wheel, he will not be able to open at least one nut in each wheel. And if I happen to lose the special spanner even I will not be able to able to undo the wheels. Those 4 nuts cost me upwards of 3000 rupees, but they are worth it. Just that I have to keep the spanner very secure so I don't lose it.
I pronounce “Volkswagen” as “Volkswagen” without any shame. If and when I go to Germany, I may pronounce it as “Folkswagen”. Follow the rules of the land, otherwise a proper noun can be pronounced as you please. So coming back to your question, we pronounce Vento as vento because it's predominantly an Indian product from Volkswagen. Most Germans wouldn't have heard about it. If it were available in Germany, maybe it would have been called Fento
Having a Ciaz Alpha Diesel and a Vento Highline TSI, i guess i am qualified to answer this question. Coming straight to the point, Safety: Both the cars comes with dual airbags, ABS and EBD as standard. So, you can say there isn’t any difference but, the braking of Vento is more sharp whereas, its linear in case of Ciaz. So, its hard to choose one among them in terms of safety. Reliability: Everyone is familiar with the dominance of Maruti Suzuki in our country and the easy availability of parts and service. Volkswagen service network is growing and the reliability is a question here. Eventhough the parts are of high quality, the costs are on the higher side during the service. The DSG gearbox is a straight import from Germany. Normally there are no chances of breakdown as such but in worst case something happens, you know what to expect. So, Ciaz is a winner here in this segment. Comfort: Here, i classify it as city comfort and highway comfort. The Vento TSI being automatic, you get a hassle free drive amidst heavy traffic also, the TSI engine coupled with DSG transmission is super responsive wherein, Ciaz will make it tough having a manual transmission and also, being more longer and wider than Vento. Also, you can expect turbo lag till 2000rpm. Coming to Highway comfort, this comes to personal decision since, Vento makes the long rides seamless having automatic transmission, cruise control and speed sensitive steering, it makes it far easy to drive but, the stiff suspension is a let down whereas, Ciaz with enormous space and super soft suspension setup, makes the long drive comfortable. Hence, i’d pick Ciaz as the winner in this ,segment. ,My mom and granny prefers Ciaz over Vento for long travels since, only thing they could compare of is in terms of comfort. Also, Ciaz gives a great high speed stability than Vento. At 150kmph, Ciaz feels more stable than Vento which becomes bumpy. Well, i have added a rear spoiler for my Ciaz which i think contributes for the stability. Adding to this, the average fuel economy i get based on my driving in a mix of city and highway is 21.6kmpl for Ciaz and 13.8 for Vento. Here, performance is not mentioned in the question. Well, if Performance is also considered then Vento TSI is a clear winner. The turbo charged petrol along with sport mode in the DSG, the performance is outstanding compared to that of Ciaz. I hope this will give you better insights. I know the comparison has been made between a Diesel Manual vs a Petrol Automatic but still, other than performance and noise levels, there isn’t much of a difference. Thanks
Skoda Rapid has always been assembled in India since the very beginning. Parts are mostly made in India in Chakan (Pune) Volkswagen facility. Almost all the parts (except maybe the badge! ) Are shared with Volkswagen Vento. However the localisation levels have increased over time. When i bought Skoda Rapid in 2015, it was about 85% localised. Now i hear it is more than 90% localised (means 90% of the parts are made in India) In 2015, Engine, Gearbox and Transmission cable were imported from Germany (again, maybe parts of engine or whole, I am not sure). Rest every part was made in India I hear that cost of some parts like clutch plate have come down after more localisation.
There are notable number of sedans available in the given price range - Ciaz, City, Verna, Vento, Rapid. But since you mentioned safety, Vento & Verna would come on the top. Volkswagen Vento: Sturdy car built by a German auto giant. Though it is made in India, it was engineered in Germany. The car is super strong with safety features (ABS, Airbags, EBD) as standard and hi tech features like Traction Control, Cruise control on the top models. It’s also a heavy car cz of which fuel efficiency takes a hit and for us indians always used to asking ‘Kitna deti hai?’ Economy becomes an important factor while buying a car. One major aspect is the owning cost of the vehicle, which tends to be a bit high for the Vento. Your usual maintenance/service bills will range in a few thousands, no surprises there. Skoda Rapid and VW Vento are the exact same car with a different logo - few features here and there, Rapid being more feature rich. You may choose depending on which brand service Center is more accessible to you. Hyundai Verna: Hyundai is a Korean brand and Verna is sold internationally. This car is your next bet. Talking about safety, Verna comes with loads of safety features - ABS, EBD, Traction Control, 6 Airbags (industry first) Overall the car also looks more stylish and contemporary than the Vento, which looks more mature and sophisticated. Verna is more comfortable to drive with soft suspension best suited for our city roads with Fuel Economy slightly better than the Vento. Now comes the most difficult part, choosing one! That I leave up to you. Do take an elaborate test drive, sometimes the car’s personality talks to you better than all the features and that’s a car buying done perfectly. Do consider comfort, service accessibility & costs before booking. All the best!

Volkswagen imports the engine and transmission from Germany and the rest is made in India itself. As far as other parts go there shouldn't be much difference but when you come to Engine and transmission you would be paying up for imported parts. Now you know why Vento parts are more costly.
