Nothing so far.

General Comments:

This is a sports car (125hp). The engine is superb. The suspension is firm. I won't recommend the sport suspension if you don't have good roads!

The seats are very comfortable, and there's a lot of room in the back.

This is the facelift model, so the dashboard is totally different from the old one.

The boot is large.

The price was low for a car with so much equipment, especially EBD, TCU, EBA, DSR, ABS, tyre pressure monitoring, automatic air conditioning, leather steering wheel etc. The stereo sounds very good.

It's very fun to drive. I've got my smile on my face when I drive it. Next car will also be a Leon for sure!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Me again, after 6000km. What went wrong with the car: the heating system failed, but fixed it immediately on warranty, it took 1 hour. The car is great, the dealer too. Now I am waiting for some accessories; t-shirts, cleaning products, and soon a sport body kit. :D.

After 11.000km, nothing went wrong with the car. I had the 1st technical revision, 200 euro it cost. The car is amazing! I love Seat.
