General Comments:

Just a little review.

I test drove a 2002 (42 month old) Skoda Superb Comfort 2.5 V6 Diesel manual.

Lovely car. Drives like it was brand new even after all those miles.

Handling was a little soft for me, it did tend to wallow a bit, but it is a big soft car and not intended to be anything else.

The engine was super smooth, but possibly not as quick as 165bhp sounds, but again the superb is a big heavy car.

The interior hadn't lasted very well and the door handles were very worn, the interior was tan and very dirty.

Skoda sales people were very helpful and not at all pushy.

Only the running costs put me off buying this car. Insurance would have been a big jump for me and the mpg would have been mid 30's I think. Not bad for the engine and car, but a bit too low for me when the performance wasn't that great from it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
