2010-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

My car has been great just take for its service, however I have had to replace 8 three in 8 months due the roads how ever the rac have told me that the tyre are to soft and thin for uk roads. The fuel consumption is a little on the high side for a diesel quite often I only get mid twenties running around town only getting high 40's on the motorway.

09-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

My Skoda Superb Elegance 3.6 litre petrol is magnificent. It's spacious, comfortable, effortless and rides and handles well. The performance is excellent, as is the economy for a 3.6 litre petrol. The four-wheel drive was a boon in the recent snowy weather, enabling me to sail past cars that were struggling. Best car I've ever had.

2009-reg Diesel, Owner for 1 to 3 years

Absolutely perfect. just starts & goes whatever the conditions. ł299 for 2 years service and thats the total costs. It is 4x4 so fuel usage is affected, but can get upper 40s on a run.

It starts first time when I turn the key and stops when I brake. I have only put fuel in. for a big cr it does very well for fuel consumption.

The diesel particulate sensor failed & the factory fitted battery failed. The 170 bhp engine is quite thirsty in town driving situations.
