Service

5 out of 5

Car Services in Forfar are superb - wouldn't go anywhere else. When my son got fined for using fog lights inappropriately (police) Seat refunded fine as the switch was faulty - can't say more than that.

Problems

Bodywork
Still shines after 3 years, but visited repairers - RD Wilson in Forfar 12 times to get bumber fixed to my satisfaction after minor bump.

Engine
No problem apart from coils and turbo sensor - warranty

Gearbox
Can be a bit tight going in to first

Other
Footwell trim can become detached
