    Pre Purchase question


    I'm going to look at a Superb MY13 (Build 9/12) tomorrow. 1.8L petrol, 7sp DSG.

    I've read about the problems with the 1.8L engines...

    Has anyone had problems here with those guys?

    Is there anything else I should be looking out for?

    Any, all info greatly appreciated.

    The engine is good if the timing chain tensioner is the latest revision.

    The 7 speed gearbox is rubbish - especially if used in heavy traffic a lot.

    It needs to be very cheap to make it worthwhile.

    Buy a diesel or a V6. What you save in repairs you can spend on fuel

    I used to think I was anal-retentive until I started getting involved in car forums
