SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Bought as an import for £13k, what else can you get for that money.

Costs

5 out of 5

1st service £100.

Driving

5 out of 5

Fantastic fun. Not much keeps up with it.

Performance

5 out of 5

Pulls quick in 1st 5 gears and even pulls well in 6th. Overtake in 3rd and you're doing 80mph before you know it.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Rear wash wipe jet started to leak, then messed up the rear door sensor. If that's it, it can't be bad.

For those in the know then yes. 2002 bodykit gave it purpose.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Everything adjusts in every way, so you can get the perfect position, not a lot of rear legroom.

Seemed ok until rear door sensor played up then the alarm went off at 3am.

Service

5 out of 5

Even though an import from Holland, Seat UK and local dealer were excellent. Full 2 years Seat UK warranty and Seat Assist.

Problems

Bodywork
Paint flaked off front bumper when the garage steam cleaned it, but they fixed that quickly.

Engine
Wow, what an engine! Just pulls and pulls and pulls.

Gearbox
Audi TT box, it's bound to be good.

Other
Optional centre armrest does not like you leaning on it, the rachet broke. Seat fix this under warranty.
