1993 Seat Toledo GLXi 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Not bad, but not great
The boot lid lock will only open with the key and when the doors are locked.
The driver's door and the near side rear door both rattle and squeak.
The brakes sometimes give the impression that they don't want to work, but pumping the pedal twice usually solves this. (The fluid level was fine.)
Drivers door leaks water and leaves you with a wet right arm and sometimes trousers! As does the off side rear door which after a night of rain left the rear floor pan flooded.
This car has a dodgy light switch. Going over a bump will cause the lights to flicker on and off.
The electric windows on the passenger side both had to have new motors which was quite expensive to do, even when my local mechanic did the job.
Electrical fault causing radio to crackle.
The central locking sometimes unlocks itself, even when all the doors are closed properly. I once returned after leaving it in a public car park and got straight in!
I liked the styling of it and wanted a big car. However I thought being a relative of a VW it would have been of a slightly better quality inside and out.
The VW engine is excellent. Fast, fun and ferocious!!
The big boot has it's advantages. I have helped at least two people move house. But there is no rear windscreen wiper which can be a little tiresome when trying to park in the rain.
Generally, it is not a bad car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
