The next time you send your Skoda in for service with a missing badge in Mumbai, be prepared for a pleasant surprise. As a goodwill gesture to its customers, Skoda Auto India has decided to replace missing badges for free. With the badges costing anywhere between Rs 600 for the Fabia's front badge to Rs 1,500 for the Yeti's rear badge, it is a move that will be appreciated by anyone who's had the irritating experience of driving around with a blank space on the nose or the boot-lid.
Skoda hasn't decided on what to do if your car goes back with a missing badge for a second time. Also, this offer is on primarily in Mumbai, because of the sheer number of orders for replacement badges from this region. With badges being replaced for free, the chances of people re-buying these stolen badges from dodgy street shops should drop. This reduced demand should hopefully curb thefts as well.
