2001 Seat Toledo SE 1.8 from UK and Ireland
A lot of car for not a lot of money
Front disc brakes pitted, which caused some problems when braking hard. Front disks changed under warranty by excellent dealer service.
Faulty wiper arm on passenger side. Replaced by dealer.
Roof rack locating cover replaced by dealer.
The 1.8 litre - 20 valve engine combined with the 4 speed automatic gearbox gives very good fuel consumption over longer distances.
Handles very well in all conditions.
Unlike the previous automatic Toledo model, the new model is in 4th gear at 30 MPH, where the older model did not change up until 40 MPH was achieved.
The new model is very quiet on most road surfaces, with only a small amount of gearbox noise during heavy acceleration.
The air conditioning works very well.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
