By and large I found this car to be a very good value family vehicle. Large boot and rear passenger leg room are very good. The engine is the common rail turbodiesel which is great. However, after the hundred thousand mile mark was reached the turbo actuator gave up so a new turbo was installed (£1200), and at around the 120,000 mark the ABS unit failed (£2000) plus MOT and labour etc. A Warning here regards the obtainability of this unit as apparently this is such a common fault on VAG units that they are very hard to obtain off the shelf. So all in all I rate the car as good but requires servicing on the dot.

The name says it all, SUPERB! I bought this car as an ex-demonstrator from the local Skoda dealer at only 10 months old and only 1300 miles on the clock. I've had it for 6 months now and been on five long business trips, plus lots of local running around. Overall mpg around 65, reaches 68 on the long trips at motorway speeds. The interior space is impressive, massive boot, lots of rear legroom, plenty of room in the front. Lots of equipment, Satnav, phone connection, trip computer, hard disc for music, cruise control, tyre pressure monitor, rear parking sensors (essential in this car), etc. etc. Wondering how the "no spare wheel" will work out, do I trust the temporary repair kit? Greenline spec has low rolling resistance tyres and lowered suspension which combine to give a slightly harsh ride on uneven roads, but no problem at all on good surfaces. Absolutely no problems up to now. Wonderful value for money. I had two 1.9 Tdi Octavias before this so I know that Skodas are reliable and economical to service.
Reliability

My experience of Skodas is that they are unrivalled for reliability.

Not a sporty drive, but at my time of life I am more interested in comfort and economy than being a boy racer.

My experience of Skodas is that they are very economical both in terms of fuel consumption and also servicing. The Superb costs me less to insure that my previous two Octavias.

I purchased the car after upgrading from a reliable but electrical and mechanical fault ridden VW Golf, having heard glowing reviews from all and sundry. Boy do I wish I didn't. My first and last Skoda, for sure. One fault is fixed and another appears, DMF failed, head gasket failed, indicator relay failed, front suspension wear, blown fuses, failed tailgate. What a piece of junk. It has cost me over 2k in repairs in the last year. Great car other than that, but you better have deep pockets, because most of the faults are big ticket items.

Superb by name and nature. So comfortable on long motorway journeys but still fun on the backroads over the moors. Never feels its size. Very good compromise between ride and handling. So well equipped theres no need to add options. Fantastic value for money. The best car i have ever owned.

I was about to buy brand new Octavia III in the store when I was enlighten by the fact that I can get a Superb with the same price tag. The model I have bought is 2.0 diesel with 140BHP which is having more features than average Octavia III model and costs exactly the same money (I have bought Active version with somme add-ons). Usually I'm using this car to drive to work (around 8 km in town) and every other week to drive to the countryside (400km) so the diesel engine was the best pick. On day to day commuting to work I get around 40 MPG, but on the long way cruising (above 70 MPH) fuel consumption is reduced to 56 MPG. Car is extremely comfy for this money, long trips are not exhausting at all. Up to 90MPH you cannot hear noise level increase. After 15k miles I do not see any shortcomings in this car. Of course it is not A8 or BMW 7,but for this money? I would definetly buy it once again.

Running Cost

3 out of 5

Reasonably economical for a V6 diesel of its vintage. (The engine was first used in the nineties in an Audi A4.) I can get 40 m.p.g. on a run but all my day to day use is in town and often for relatively short journeys. I can't comment on servicing yet as I haven't had the car long enough to need one but the next service will have to include cambelt change. I am advised that the labour involved makes it advisable to change the water pump and other ancillary drive belts at the same time. Dealer price around Ł650, independent specialist quotes around Ł550 for the same work.

All round it has been excellent - bought at 10,500 miles and now showing 69,000 miles. The only disapointment is the restricted access to the boot but skoda have addressed this in the variation which followed. If i am certain that i am going to keep it for more than two years i will probably get a gas conversion as a 2.8 v6 petrol automatic is not the most frugal on fuel consumption, but i knew this when i bought it. It will still get 36 to the gallon on a motorway run.

Excellent, should be car of the year. A couple of very minor quibbles, i would prefer 6th gear to be set 300-400 rpm lower, e.g. so at 70mph i cruised at 1800rpm not 2200rpm, the current gear ratio just isn't perfect (economically) for driving in the uk. Was excellent on some road trips, including a trip to europe, where the ability to just switch the adaptive headlights to the other side without needing stickers was much appreciated, as was the comfortable ride, cruise control, and vast space. Comfort and legroom is brilliant. Only other tiny criticism is the boot isn't flat to the read seats when they're folded down. Two fairly minor criticism though to a car i prefer to 5-series, at half the price with extra kit!

Nothing major has gone wrong with the car. I read all the reviews beforehand and everything in the auto express reviews is true! The superb is an excellent car and has the quality of brands well above this price range. This is the first car that i have had several comments about, with people telling me that the car looked great and they loved the syling - one of my neighbours actually bought one as well after me. Only slight negative comment is that it is a tight fit across the back seat for 3 car seats. Otherwise perfect and i really expected the greenline version to be more basic and underpowered with the older 1.9 diesel - but i've no complaints

The skoda superb's class is in its title. I feel safe and reassured in this car. It is comfortable, reliable and a solidly built vehicle. I have has 5 happy years driving it too. I will not get rid of it until it falls to pieces and becomes too expensive to repair. The only major fault has been the air-con has stopped working efficiently.

I am impressed with the superb, from the fuel economy to acceleration, styling build quality. It could do with folding rear seats, however they may have sorted that on the new model. I go camping with the family (aka. the tribe) and with the car fully laden and a top box, its comfortable, tremendous economy and power is tremendous. Seriously looking at buying the new model when i change.

Well put together but the mechnicals have proven extremely unreliable. The fuel economy is extremely poor and by no means a reflection of how it is advertised. Overall, dissapointing car and service.

Skoda v v good. Comments above refer to bmw alpina which i rejected on v v poor paint finish, i had paid £3000 and i could have ended up with less orange peel, this was xmas 2009, i sent car back and sytner refunded moneys, not their problem -but they did the right thing, bmw and a lot of other car makers currently produce paint finishes - rather like my father did witha brush on a ford 8 in 1949.
