SEAT Leon Hatchback 1.8 20V T Cupra 5d (2002/02) - Owner Review

The boot. The boot is a great size and when seats folded flat leaves plently of room for disco gear! could be said the rear bumper is high, so loading things in is alittle more tricky.

June 2008

Loved the look (yes in the yellow), great toys, reliablity, understated, brilliant all rounder.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I find it's a great alrounder. The car is at home on B-roads, but motorways in 6th expect some good pull. Easily caters for the go faster driver or the morning run...clearly designed for many users in mind.

What's it like to park?
It gives a long impression, but looking round is good. Rearview window is high, so reverseing can be bit of a nightmare at times but I fitted a parking sensor. Mirrors change when reverse selected so kerbs are easily spotted. Turning circle isn't brilliant but noticed when parking.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Two days after purchase the oil pump went bust. However fixed by dealer with no charge or questions asked. Since then no problems at all.

What's most practical about your car?
The boot. The boot is a great size and when seats folded flat leaves plently of room for disco gear! could be said the rear bumper is high, so loading things in is alittle more tricky.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Heated leather seats. This is my first car with them...seriously buy with this option! great in the colder months. Also the auto wipers/dimming rear view mirror add alittle more to the overall package.
