2003 Seat Toledo SE TDI 1.9 (90PS) turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Excellent car, comfy, quiet, efficient. Recommended!
Door seals have come away from the exterior panels, but have been fixed with a drop of epoxy.
Heater display unit broken by previous owner, but the heater is still fully functional.
The key only opens the driver's door remotely (pressing the blipper).
Airbag warning light present, caused by shunting the passenger seat forward a bit hard - not a real problem.
Very comfy, very quiet. Much quieter than my previous Volvo, and about the same comfort level.
Driver's footwell a little narrow - takes practice to drive in large boots.
Driver's seat is a little short on thigh support, but probably fine for most (I'm 6'4" with long legs).
Easily returns 54 MPG even on god-awful supermarket diesel. Mostly motorway driving at 70. Could return maybe 58 MPG if kept at about 58-62mph. City driving still returns 45 MPG easily.
Radio is very very good. Powerful, bass-y and still crisp.
The boot is simply enormous. The boot opening is quite wide, but the lip is quite high.
I would definitely recommend this car. It is a little slower than what I'm used to, but I don't buy diesels for speed anyway. Makes for a good tourer; the engine may be a little underpowered for towing a large caravan.
Seat after sales have been very helpful to me any time I've needed them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
