Skoda Superb 3T (2009-2015) has been discontinued and replaced by Skoda Superb NP.
I’m very disappointed with the quality of my Skoda Superb. My car has been recalled and the mechatronic unit replaced, however my car failed again due to the mechatronic unit. It was a very scary experience, as my car’s mechatronic unit failed causing my car to suddenly stop while I was still on drive. My sister-in-law also had a similar experience with her car. Her Skoda Octavia also had problems with the car suddenly stopping due to the mechatronics. Her vehicle required the mechatronic unit to be replaced not once, but twice in the space of a year, once under recall, then again a year after. I am not sure what’s going on, I am not impressed with the quality of my vehicle and I feel very upset and disappointed with my experience.
Purchased in February 2013.

Fantastic car until you need service under warranty.
10/October/2018 - In August 2018 I bought my mother's Skoda Superb 2015 that had only 6800km in the odometer. The car had spent most of the time parked in the garage.
On 1st of October I pulled the handbrake and it did not work. I took the car to Eastside Skoda at Melbourne which assessed the car and promised to come back to me.
On the 9th of October Skoda responded the bolt that was missing in the handbrake could not be replaced and the whole system would need to be replaced. The parts would arrive on the 17th of October. When asked abou...t the warranty I got the following response: "The handbrake bolt is not something that works itself loose over time; and it is an item checked at each service. Warranty has stated that the only way this could have happened, especially so far into the ownership of the vehicle, is an incorrect adjustment of the handbrake at a previous service causing the bolt to fall off and go missing. This would mean external influence is the cause of this concern, and that it is not a warrantable manufacturing defect." Clearly Skoda assumed my mother had taken the car to be serviced at a non-authorised service centre. I replied to Skoda saying that the car had only been serviced at Lennock Skoda Canberra and requested them to confirm it. Skoda confirmed the last and only service done in the car happened on February 2018 at Lennock Skoda. So the second response to suggest it was not going to be covered by the warranty:
