    My car

    I have had this car for almost three years now, and cover about 20,000 miles per year. I cannot fault the Superb in any way at all, and would gladly consider buying another one.

    Economy On almost any motorway run, I achieve 54mpg, when cruising at motorway speeds. Around town, I get 45mpg. For a car of any size, this is impressive.

    The drive I have never taken my Superb on a race track, and have no interest in doing so! But the ride is extremely comfortable, and I have no complaint with the handling at all. I have had Fords and BMWs and several other makes, and I would say that the Superb feels as good as the best for everyday driving, which is what most of us are interst in. There is plenty of power, especially for overtaking where it's not necessary to change down at all, to achieve almost entertaining pulling power.

    Space, equipment etc. For the base model, the equipment levels are impressive, including climate control, "coming home" lights, folding rear seats, cooled storage boxes, and an excellent stereo. The only thing I miss is cruise control. The space for all passengers is immense, and it is rare for me to carry someone new to the car without receiving unpromted comments of praise.

    Overall This is the best car I have ever owned, in all respects, and it looks great too in pearlescent black.

    My car

    The Superb is the best company car I have driven for a long time.

    The 140bhp diesel delivers all the power you need and the smooth ride is very good. Cabin size is excellent, and the boot size is great but a hatch would give more access to larger loads.

    Having just changed company, I'm waiting now for my new Comfort Superb to be delivered.

    My car

    After owning a Fabia VRS for a year, we decided to upgrade to the Superb to cope with our rapidly growing family. Our new car had been in the showroom for six months and the dealer gave us an excellent deal on our Fabia in part exchange, in addition to a healthy discount on the new car.

    After some initial teething problems with the particulate filter (the car switched to limp home mode twice in the first month), we have experienced no further issues. After the first 3000 miles the car felt like it had really loosened up and was surprisingly fast, especially after having driven the Fabia, which was excellent fun!

    Everything seems well put together and we love the ambient lighting at night. Things like shopping hooks in the cavernous boot are useful touches. The seats are very cmfortable and the memory seats are great. Our two young daughters love the heated seats in the back! The cream interior does show up the dirt though.

    The built in Satnav works well both here and in Europe. Shame that you have to buy a new CD for each country, as they aren't cheap.

    Fuel economy is excellent for a car this size. The car's looks are impressive, almost as good as the Passat. Ours has the darkened rear windows which look good. Will be interesting to compare it to the new model coming out next year.

    Verdict: a thoroughly excellent car, from a very satified Skoda owner.

    My car

    I had this car from new, for a taxi, and did 220,000 almost trouble free miles in it, the only major problems where, the MAS packed in and was replaced under warenty, the water pump shaft snaped, a month after the timeing belt was changed,at 110,000 so when i had the second belt fitted at 180,000 i told them to change the water pump as well.I have cut service bills by half by going to independant gararges it does not like petrol stations and only goes to one every 600 to 650 miles, and on a long run from Leon in France back to Scotland it did 886 miles before thr fuel light came on,things skoda need to do, bring out a hatchback, the boot is tight for 4 big cases, and change the head lights they eat bulbs
