2000 Seat Leon SE 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A great family car for those who want to hold onto their youth
Car was bought as an ex-demo from a dealer. There is a small diesel leak from the engine which is yet to be addressed by the dealer. Too early to ascertain reliability and dealer service score.
Engine is very torquey and economical - at least 50mpg.
Build quality is excellent as is the CD system.
Looks great - better styled that a Golf or A3.
Sports suspension is also good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I am considering buying the Leon TDi and hence have some questions. How quiet is 110 TDi engine in the Leon? How obvious is it that it is diesel at idle?

Don't expect any diesel engine not to sound diesel. Be careful and consider what you want: economy of fuel or economy of clatter. I have never met both together (yet, it may be in the future).
