Life threatening experience in Skoda Octavia

for 2.0 TDI AT Style Plus

I barely saved my life when the steering got jammed while driving. A major accident was averted. And for this manufacturing defect, you are asking me to pay 50%.
I will be talking to someone senior up in Skoda, and also approach Government agencies and Media from tomorrow and highlight my case
This is the best reward for 20 years of my loyalty for Skoda?It is a manufacturing defect, and not because of usage (my car has only done 40,000 KMS - can a steering assembly go bad in 40K Kms?

Make sure to take this complaint to the government . And make them repair it for free and also to give u the expenses for your KHARCHA. I will never buy a Skoda car if customers are treated like this

    This steering jam occurred jas the rarest of the rare, by having this review not buying skoda, the decision is wrong. As this gentleman himself said that he was using skoda for 20 yrs. This steering jam may occur 1 in a lakh, its negligible, even this car he drove 40 k km's, you will be surprised to know my issue with American co Chevrolet spark,within 2k kms, my brakes failed two times,escaped
