Skoda Superb 2016 Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the Skoda Superb here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Skoda Superb: Cruise control failure
It hasn’t been hit, which would be obvious to an experienced eye, and there haven’t been any repairs done to it, so how does Skoda explain that. Your options are to continue pursuing Skoda to repair your car for free, enlist the help of your state consumer affairs people in the hope they might be able to assist you, or pay for it yourself and move on.
What car is big enough to sleep in the back of?
It's hard to give you a definite recommendation, as most cargo measurements are in litres rather than floor length, but I reckon most mid-size wagons and large SUVs would do the job for you.
Most of these have a flat boot floor with the seats folded, and likely have ample body length for sleeping.
Don't be afraid to try them out for size at the dealers either. You'd certainly test out a mattress before buying right?!
What's a good, medium-sized sedan for touring?
The demand for manual gearboxes is so low today that it’s not worth car companies doing all the compliance work needed when they know they would only sell a handful of cars. You might have to loo at something like a Holden Commodore.
Best replacement for a Calais
With local production shutting down the big-car choices are getting fewer and fewer, but right now you can still buy a Calais if that's what you like. You can also buy an equivalent Falcon or Toyota Aurion. There are more expensive cars, from the likes of BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Audi etc. that would suit, but they come with a much higher price tag than a Calais. Others you could try are a Skoda Superb, a Honda Accord V6 Luxury if you're prepared to give up a little in size, and there's also the Chrysler 300C.
Skoda Superb 2016 Towing capacity
