Summary:

Skoda Superb - Superb car for smart people

Faults:

Everything is in superb condition.

General Comments:

Everything with this car is superb, good handling, excellent drive, full of features such as tip-tronic transmission and electric seat c/w memory, spacious cabin, comfortable ride and powerful engine (turbo).

For all the above, its cabin size is the key factor of my purchase decision. I can say its actual rear leg room is even larger than my father's Mercedes E class (in which my father is still in puzzle until now...), although in paper both cars' wheelbase are about the same.

This is the only car in which my wife can relax and stretch herself during long distance travel. Even my kids love it - plenty of room for them to play.

Coupled with great features and reasonable price, this car is really value-for-money. It is money well spent!

Summary:

Get into a Superb, then by all means compare it with the competition

Faults:

Honk did not work properly. Problem rectified immediately by dealer.

Nothing else have gone wrong.

General Comments:

Amazing rear legroom coupled with huge boot space always left one puzzled & very impressed.

Sharing the looks of VW's Passat, the car inherits a classy console, good-looking speedometer, sturdy & elegant finishings & fittings usually reserved for premium German cars.

Loads of very useful, clever gadgets and safety features.

Despite its size, the 1.8 turbo engine is responsive, smooth and powerful especially when approaching 2000 rpm.

The car can feel a little floaty on uneven roads, but otherwise, ride comfort is not an issue.

Would have been nicer if reverse sensors were installed on bumper strip instead of on bumper.

550km and you're already giving it a 9/10 for reliability? More like "N/A" methinks.
