SEAT Leon Hatchback (00-05)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It used to say 'likes a good quality car but doesn't see why he has to pay for a Golf badge', but I'm not sure that SEATs still say that...

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

Would you buy this car again and why?
I would love a new Leon, but it is a very different beast now. If I had my time over I would definity buy this car again!

What are you likely to buy next?
Not sure...

Did you buy this car new?

April 2005

Did you get a good deal and why?
I got a good deal on the car as the dealer was struggling and shut down about a month after I bought the car.

Extremely helpful!

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
It was very quiet on the motorway and quick off the mark, but at 118,000 miles it is beginning to feel its age.

What's it like to park?

Living with it

Have you had any problems with the car?
There was a problem with the accelerator pedal. The dealer that we took it to was useless so we took it to a service centre who where great. I had a new exhaust after the bracket sheered off, but that is it about it in 118,000 miles!

What's most practical about your car?
The boot is much bigger than you think it's going to be.
