SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Better value, and possibly a better car, than the equivalent Golf.

Costs

4 out of 5

£300 oil change service steep. Did argue over £1k off list price.

Driving

4 out of 5

Great car to drive.

Service

1 out of 5

The worst service I have ever had owning a car!

Problems

Bodywork
Stone chipped bonnet very easily.

Engine
Make sure all ignition coils are changed before you buy! They will go otherwise when you least expect it! Mine went twice on the Motorway.

Dealer awful, caused me anguish every time I have dealt with them. Even when I bought it, they did not make me feel special, certainly no bunch of flowers. Handled the change of ignition coils very badly - had to contact Seat UK HQ to get sorted. Poor!
