Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Skoda Superb saloon?

The Superb is generally very sturdy, but you need to be a bit more cautious with the 1.8 T model, particularly on early cars. It can suffer ignition coil failure, which may cause it to misfire and eventually break down. We've also heard some reports of the climate control unit giving trouble, so give all the electrical kit a good check, too.

Don't forget to see that the headlamps work. It's not a deal breaker, of course, but the front bulbs are fiddly and time-consuming to replace on a Superb - get the seller to do it.
