Summary:

Great value for the money

Faults:

I have not experienced anything wrong with this car.

General Comments:

The car is simply superb and I can write it gives more than I even expected. It is much more comfortable and quiet in comparison with Octavia II which uses similar chassis but shorter wheel base. I have tested some A4 and A6 and BMW3 and BMW5) but the space available in Superb's cabin and boot beats them all. The comfort level is almost the same even if the price is much lower.

I am enjoying the twin-door system which makes this car even more useful. Adaptive head lights became a habit after first evening in the car.

The only very minor note is dedicated to the electrical seat control. The placement of the controls could be enhanced as I am slightly touching them sometime by the left leg when leaving the car which requires small readjustment before the next drive.

If it will be reliable as my former Octavia II (no fault except the light bulb within 120000 km) I will consider to buy another next time.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

You can program the driver's seat and exterior mirrors to adjust to your positions through the key, so that they automatically reset when you unlock and open the driver's door. This saves you having to touch the controls every time you get in.
