Summary:

Fast safe and fun car with stiff suspension

Faults:

Fault on one of the 4 tail lights; the light on the boot lid.

Very minor pain damage to rear wing.

General Comments:

This car is very fast and feels more powerful than 130 BHP.

Packed with toys and features, all useful.

Comfortable seats as I am tall and have back problems.

Loads of leg room.

A strange head turner as there are not that many on the road.

Feels safe.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

It probably feels more powerful than 130bhp because it's 140bhp :)

Summary:

Fast, comfy and looks the part

Faults:

Not a thing!

General Comments:

Very nice car, loads of power.

The seats are very nice, very firm, and the suspension is firm, but not over the top.

It has the feel of something very powerful inside it.

Dealer couldn't have helped me any more, managed to get me into the car in under one day,

The Leon is one of those cars you have to have a test drive of. I can tell you that you will be impressed, I know I was!

Couldn't agree more. I'm well pleased with mine.

It's a shame about the cheap and nasty plastics on the dash though. I would have expected better from a VW based product.

What about the extremely unforgiving suspension... makes me feel ill on every journey.
