A luxury sedan
Pros : Enormous interiors, good looks, nice handling and is very easy to drive
Cons : A/c is worthless, suspensions are dumb, ignorance of quality, bad customer service and gear box makes the drive painful
I have been driving Skoda’s Superb for over a year now and from the very first day the problems started and I am still facing hard time getting resolutions for them. Superb damn has nothing which I can say as great yep it is Superb at giving a big tension and is a untested piece of French engineering dumped in the Indian market and can rightly be called as Skoda’s mischievous plan to make money from India from something doesn’t worth it.
On the very first day I was on my way to home from showroom and suddenly horn stopped working can you even think off, a car for which you have shed 20 lacs from your pocket can have a problem like this but is true I went to the showroom the very next day they checked it out but not able to figure out a solution and said they don’t have horn in the ware house and it will need some days to repair. A month back a/c started giving me a hard time, been thrice to service center but the problem persists and rear passengers sweat. After some months gear box started troubling me and one day it reached my bearing limit when car stopped in the middle of a busy road with no sign of any problem and is so heavy and can only be towed.
We have only one car and I hesitate to take it on long tours and prefer to go by taxi. I already suffered a lot and think of switching over to somebody reputed like Honda thinking to go for Accord. I read a lot of user reviews and all are sharing the same grievances something should be done to make them suffer and to give them a feel of pain people who opt them are going through.
