Faulty brake light switch. Very common on equivalent VW's, Audis and Skodas apparently. A very minor thing in itself, but would not allow the car to come out of 'park', being an automatic. Unit replaced.
Slight connection fault on the drivers reading lamp. Unit replaced.
Drivers door lock a little stiff. Lubricated and now fine.
No other faults, and still very happy.
I was looking for a German car, but couldn't find one with less than 100,000k on the clock for what I was prepared to pay. It was then I considered the Seat Toledo. It's a Volkswagen-Audi under the skin. For £3995 I got a German-built car with a genuine 28,600 on the clock.
With a 1.8 20 valve Volkswagen-Audi engine, it'll soak up the miles with ease. Even though it is an automatic, and is therefore slightly more thirsty, it's a doddle to drive. The performance is stunning accompanied by a raucous note from the twin exhausts.
I had a choice of two models; a 1.8S and a 1.8SE. I decided to go for the higher spec SE. It's got cruise control, climate control, ABS, traction control, all round electric windows, six airbags, six track Cd multi-changer and cassette Sony stereo, computer, all round disc brakes, front and rear headrests, power steering, remote central locking, four speed intermittent wipe, front and rear fog-lights... I could go on.
With the package I got, for the money I spent...unless you are a badge snob, why pay all that extra for an Audi or Volkswagen badge?
