SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)

Value

5 out of 5

Lots of car for the money makes the Golf look stingy.

Costs

3 out of 5

Servicing and the one part I have had to buy(new glovebox handle) is a bit on the dear side.

Driving

Lovely when cruising and great fun on twisty roads.

Performance

5 out of 5

Smooth power delivery, no need to work the gears, it just keeps pulling. Overtaking has never been so simple and it feels good upsetting 3-series drivers!

Reliability

5 out of 5

No problems so far.

Best and meanest looking hatch around, looks super lary in ovni yellow and with the addition of a set of 17" BK Racing 177s, looks even better!

Comfort

4 out of 5

Climate control is lovely. Seats are great in the front, a little cramped for rear passengers having the CD changer in the glovebox is a pain, no room for anything else.

Alarm and immobiliser, as far as I know no one has tried to steal it yet.

Service

A raised digit of contempt to King's SEAT in Portsmouth, two thumbs up to King's SEAT in Southampton.

Broke the handle off the glovebox but I did forget that I had locked it! Still if the kid would just keep her hands to herself!.. for once!.. Please just leave it alone!
