2001 Seat Leon Sport 1.9 TDI from UK and Ireland
A car you will learn to hate
All four doors leaked water.
Front headlights full of water.
Rear lights full of water.
Boot lock broke down.
Dashboard light had a mind of it's own.
Dust in the paint job.
The Seat Leon is a car I would not advice a friend to buy.
It has many problems and there are a lot of quality issues like the leaking doors that have not been solved even after 2 years of production.
The brakes are dangerous in winter conditions because sometimes they will react only after the second or third time you step on your brakes.
I had to return my car to the dealership 10 times in 9 months, this meant a ninety mile return drive, 10 times.
No apology or compensation was given to me, even after I asked for it.
After suffering 10 months of Seat Leon ownership I can tell you that customer care is something yet to be discovered by this carmaker.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
Review Date: 1st July, 2002
I am very upset, to see the mess those fools have made of your car. You should give them all absolute hell!!
I by contrast, have had a Seat Toledo since the end of 1999 and it is a fantastic car. Mine was made in Belgium.
I am terribly sorry for you and I hope you expose those idiots.
Just a little bit of care and your story would be so different. It really makes me furious when they mess up at the factory.
They should rename this car and call it Seat Leakon, the doors of my Leon started leaking again.
Is this going to be a never ending story?
