2004 Seat Toledo 1.8SE 20v 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland


Nippy good value and nice to look at


Car developed a leak in front drivers foot-well, sorted by the dealers at first attempt.

General Comments:

Much better drive than my old Rover 620 but not as quick, but then again the seat only has an 1800cc engine, Loads of kit Cd changer, cruise control, trip computer, climate control, auto dimming rear view mirror, auto sensing windscreen wipers and a nice set of alloys the list goes on and on. Best of all VW build quality and Seat prices, so far very happy.

2004 Seat Toledo SE 1.9 TDI 130 from UK and Ireland


Latin style, Spanish flair and German reliability


Nothing apart from a minor annoying dashboard squeak going over bumpy roads - Dealer has promised to sort in warranty.

General Comments:

Superb car - this is my second Toledo TDI and this version (130bhp) is really much more torquey, the 6 speed box is a dream, and its loaded with gadgets. Looks great, and in my opinion is much nicer looking than the model it is being replaced by. The boot is cavernous, another reason for loving this car so much.

2004 Seat Toledo from UK and Ireland


I haven't had this car for long, but so far I'm really happy with it


The cruise control engages occasionally when I use the turn signal indicator. This might be due to the location of the speed setting button.

The brakes squeal when warm; especially in long, slow-moving queues.

General Comments:

I'm not entirely comfortable with the seats. They are fairly neutral for a short drive, but are fatiguing over any medium length (60-100 miles) distance.

The environment and tuner controls are a little difficult to use.

I am impressed by the pickup of the Toledo. It truly gets up and goes.

I love the huge boot.

Totally agree with the issue of the brakes. The car is very reliable I have never had any problems with my 1.9 TD 2004.

I am the owner of the first comment. I still did not have any single problem with this car. I love it.

I have had my Toledo tdi for nearly three years now, I'm the second owner and the only problem was replacement of reverse light switch.

Great performance, good economy and top build quality.

I'm the owner of the review dated 16th Aug 2005, I still didn't have any problems with my car. This is a very reliable car.

You are very lucky indeed, bitter lemon seat leons spring to mind.
