2001 Seat Leon S 1.6 from UK and Ireland
I would never buy from Seat again
All 4 coils have gone and had to be replaced.
Leaking door seals with 3 inches of water every time it rains in all four foot wells.
Engine management light constantly on.
EC warning light flashes on and off.
Car stalls at stand still.
The car when first brought was a lovely car. Within 6 months and out of warranty, the first coil broke. From then on the car has been breaking down regularly.
I also then developed the issue with leaking doors, which Seat told me was the pollen filter, which has been rectified around 4 times now.
I told today that it's the doors seals and have been quoted £215 to repair along with a broken map sensor and AGR valve, which is causing the poor fuel consumption and running of this car.
My frustration is I have battled with Seat for the last 2.5 years on this, and nobody until now has dealt with the problems.
I have two young children who have to sit in the wet and stinky car daily. It's a disgrace.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
