Skoda Superb Diesel Reviews
Don't ever get lured
Pros Good looks, good features
Cons Very bad production quality, coupled with pathetic service levels
I had the misfortune of purchasing a Skoda product (Laura L&K) in Sept, 2007 for an amount of approx. Rs.17 lacs. Ever since, I have been facing continuous trouble with the car with Skoda showing complete lack of customer service good at lip service though. Name the trouble, its there engine gasket blows off in 1st week of purchase, clutch coupler switch defective, AC compressor conked off, music player stopped working, wheels jammed while driving, brakes caught fire, continuous noise from dashboard etc. Biggest mistake I have made in my life never ever again. Please research thoroughly before you buy a Skoda product.
BY FAR THE WORST SERVICE BACK UP
Pros LOOKS GOOD. REST IS ALL DECEPTIVE
Cons SERVICE, BUILD QUALITY, STAFF AT JAI AND NAWAB AUTO IN DELHI NCR
Skoda Superb seemed the best in its class but the truth is its the worst in its class. A car is complete with an excellent service back up. Let me give you some insight, I bought Superb is July 2010 after convincing my dad that it is better than camry and accord. From July 2010 to August 2012 my car has been in workshop and in broken state for about 4 months. So technically i have been able to even use my car because of the pathetic service. I have 2 fortunner, one accord and one superb. all of them are outstanding in service and quality, except superb. Superb hands down is the worst car i have ever purchased. Once i had a TATA indica too which was very bad quality wise but there service was far better than SKODA.
A Very Good Car with some rough edges
Pros Good Performance,Great Interiors,Comfort,
Cons Average Fuel Efficiency,Poor Airconditioning, Unsettled City Ride.
A nice Comfortable car with Great Interiors and acres of Space.
The 1.8 TSI petrol engine is nice but a little under-powered for such a heavy car. The fuel economy is OK but not great, in fact a little extra power may improve fuel economy as there would be less stress on it.
The heavy car requires a little revving to move off as the clutch adjustment is not linear. Initially, even some experienced drivers may stall the car a few times.
The Air Conditioning is the weakest point in this car as the system seems to be designed for European temperatures. The Pillar Vents for the Rear seat passengers are all but useless.
The Ride is unsettled and could be better on city roads. On Highways it is great.
Skoda Service falls down badly, our dealer is quite indifferent and the car had to be resent twice for rectification points which had been pointed out on the job card but were unattended. The Company will have to drastically improve its service standards.
Overall, a nice car if you can tackle the bad Skoda service standards. Good VFM.
Pros Space.Will put Cclass & 5 series to shame. Numerous useful trinklets
Cons Mistaken as overgrown Octavia. No DSG transmission. Poor quality original tyres. Lacks pedigree
Humongous space. Even with front seats all the way to the back, there is enough space for a 6 footer to sit behind comfortably. Numerous trinklets like umbrella in the rear seat door handle, light on opening mirror in the sun visor, hooks in the trunk to hold bags to prevent spillage, etc. Delay when auto gear down, but once gear downs its just takes off. 2 of the original tyres had side bulges which was replaced. Maintainability negligible compared to the Merc. But lacks pedigree as there is a difference when I get down at a function in the Superb and C-class ! Overall its a seriously value for money car.
