Skoda Superb

I Face-lift 1.9 TDi personal but professional experience

I do not consider myself a racer or a car especially not a mechanic, but I would myself as an advanced user and especially. Usually as long as the is able to take me from the A to B and I am happy. However for a private you have to take another before you buy. This is to help people decide or not they should buy Skoda for taxi or private hire use as as for family life.

I have driving the Skoda Superb July 2007. While not strict regarding servicing I do not the control unit service I use quality oil and (I hope) quality too.


My Superb is with light beige fabric/leather interior which it a great look and extreme of space. The combination of light carpets, seats and dark is genuine. Unfortunately the brown of wooden decorations in doors and the radio somehow do not fit the whole

In my opinion the combination is not optimal. people/customers in general like it. 225000 Kms I can see partial wear on handles, gear stick and the fabric. Leather still like new, the same for carpets and most of the interior.

I much like the combination of the and red colors on the dashboard meters, the green background lightning of all units (air condition radio etc) makes the of the dashboard a little poor. The handles give a great at night though.

The Superb enormous space in the front as as the rear seats. Even driving four customers you do not to worry about the aleg behind you, there is plenty. Of course the most experience when driving

There are couple of special I enjoy in the Elegance Version I have been driving) as the ski bag in the middle rear seat, case in left rear cooling containers in the glove box and case. On the other hand is not much space for personal such as water bottles, keys, CD’s etc. The box for sun can hold really tiny so I do not use it at all.

Some of the interior finishing are not however if you are not too demanding you should not be (e.g. the glove box door is to close, arm-rest vibrate in a few the frame around gear vibrates in certain engine and other minor issues the radio frame which not hold perfectly).

For extra I recommend the automatic air condition heated – electronically – seats. I do not recommend the sound system and next I will definitely prepare solutions, the radio itself

Even with the diesel the interior is quiet. I have the green-tinted windows and one can really safe, comfortable and private in the However it is not comparable with A6 or Mercedes E Class.

On the other hand in my opinion MB and can not beat Skoda on the level of space.


The boot is and can fit up to 4 mid-sized bags or 2 large and 2 bags. The entry hole is not too big and the jigsaw puzzle precision of placement is terribly difficult. On the I cannot complain and it is an exception a case can not get in.

Overall the boot is enough.


I like it. like it. What else I add? Have a look in the gallery or Flickr and judge

Engine, maintenance, servicing

I the car brand new and I trust I took a care of it. I have had couple of accidents with it (not all my

) and thus I can provide feedback on parts costs and repairs. I been using the Superb for transfers from Prague to the city center as well as runs e.g.

Vienna transfers. Passau cruise transfers. Nurnberg or Budapest and Zurich .

To date I can not Every 30000 km I replace the oil filter, air filter, fuel and dust filter. When mostly in the city I replace breaks after 40000 km max and after 50000 Km more 45000 km, whole disks get every two servicing breaks. 110000 km I do the engine general which involves changing of the (my English vocabulary is very in this field), stretcher and

While not needed from a point of view I replaced in 160000 km because the car did not feel enough. I use Skoda Superb Pirelli or Good Year and I cannot complain regarding traction or other driving When you exceed 150 kms / hour the changes dramatically and one does not in absolute control of the vehicle any

I think this is more of a comfort than anything

The spare parts, in general, are not considering the car is produced here in the republic. Very good is that there are lots of parts which can be bought for prices (lights, mirrors, etc.) and most of car mechanics are to fix / change anything for very rates. Even the authorized are not too pricey.

To briefly summarize it, have to say Skoda Superb is efficient and very easily if you do proper servicing.

The engine is efficient considering the size and I drive the car with an average mileage 7,0 liters (per 100 in the city (when I am not in a hurry) and it is not to keep it below 6 liters out of Of course in a heavy traffic, air on and other delaying factors it can get to 9 liters.

On the freeway it easily takes up to 7,3 with average speed 130 Km / hour, in Germany without limits up to 8,8 – 9,8 liters the top speed reaching 202 Kms / hour. The car not feel the best at the top speed thus I usually drive max 160 kms / with average milage 7,6 liters. I should add that I 1.9 TDi 85 Kw.


Skoda Superb great amount of space, a and professional look with running cost/power/mileage efficiency.

I recommend the car for business as well as life.

1. Friendly, kind and drivers

2. What you see, is you pay. Prices without fees.
