    My car

    I cannot believe why there are so few Superbs on the road. As a family luxury car it really does fit the bill on all requirements. It's bigger, cheaper to buy and run than any of it's peers and when it comes to equipment there is no other car for the price than can touch it. The only reason would buy a VW Passatt instead of a Superb is purely badge snobbery. To prove this when I bought this car I took it to work to how the car nuts what it was like, by the end of the day every single person in the office (including all the young hip girls) had climbed all over the car and could not believe it was a SKODA!!!!!! What a car!

    My car

    I had an Octavia 1.8T prior to buying a new 2.0 TDI Superb. The ride is not as exciting, but on longer journeys (over 10 miles) it is bliss. It's so comfortable, and I cannot as yet think of any extra I would want in the cabin and from the car - brilliant.

    The Octavia cost me £32 in replacement spares (outside of normal service costs) over four years - I am sure that the Superb will be close.

    The car is great to drive, and maybe the best part is that sitting inside, I am aware that whilst I am in a fairly innocuous-looking car from the outside, it is actually almost more 'executive' than my MD's car! It's great fun being a Skoda fan and living 'under the radar' and enjoy being both smug and proud.

    I just have not quite worked out the best retort to all my colleagues who think that driving a badge is more important than driving a car.

    I cannot recommend Skoda highly enough!

    My car

    I spent a year looking for my next new car. My criteria was refinement, comfort, value for money, quality and reliability.

    I looked at BMWs, Audis, the new VW Passat, Lexus and Volvo, but none of these could beat the Superb. The car doubles up as weekend family car and for my journey to work, and is simply excellent.

    On work days, I use to unwind after the trip home, now I unwind the minute I get in the car. With a healthy discount, low running costs and good dealers, the package is unbeatable. Do not underrate this car.

    My car

    This is my third Skoda and my second 2.5 V6 Elegance Auto. In 35 years driving, this is without a shadow of a doubt the best equipped, most reliable, comfortable, and cost-effective to run of the 35 cars I have owned over this period. That's one car a year on average, but it's 2.5 years per car for the Skodas.

    Why do so many taxi drivers use them? They're second overall in the 2006 JD Power survey of nearly 200 vehicles. It's the only affordable limo with a diesel/auto combination.

    It can be a bit barge-like and the 2006 model has very low profile tyres, resulting in slightly nervous handling over bumps, but pound-for-pound you cannot buy better equipment, refinement, space, low cost of ownership and reliability.
