Your Quotes

“The best vehicle I have owned. The engine, styling, performance, handling, running costs and looks are all superb. I'd always choose it over a Ford Focus.”

Mr Paul Coates - Lancashire

“Now looking to replace this car and I am realising what good value the car is, and the interior quality is as good as some more upmarket rivals.”

Mr Christian Wade – Newton Le Willows

“Good car, easy to drive especially with DSG gearbox.”

Mr David Garfield - Powys

“It's a Leon FR - more for going fast than driving fast. The driver involvement is poor and the steering feel non-existent. Other than that it's great.”

Mr Stuart Read - Suffolk

“An excellent all-round package. Having previously owned an Audi, I intended to buy an A3 but thought I would have a look at the new SEAT Leon and am I glad I did. Having compared specifications the SEAT won hands down and I saved £4,000 in the process. It even has the same switchgear as any VW or Audi and the same 2.0 T FSI engine.”

Mr Graham Drake - Surrey

“The best vehicle I have ever owned. The engine, styling, performance, handling, running costs, looks, everything about it is superb. Being in the same class as a Ford Focus, I would choose a Leon every time. Ford isn't even in the same league as SEAT for build quality.”

Mr Paul Andrew - Lancs

“An attractive family hatchback which stands out from more ‘traditional’ rivals. I expected a better standard of build quality given the VW group connection, however.”

Mr Andrew Brookes – South Yorks

Manufacturer Verdict (Position - 19th)

Mid-table mediocrity –– it’'s hardly what SEAT bosses had been hoping for. Last year, the firm slipped three places down the chart, but we were looking on the bright side, expecting a rise in 2007 following the arrival of a raft of new models. Instead the VW-owned marque has dropped another two rungs. With sub-standard ratings across the board, you are finding SEAT ownership a bit underwhelming.
