This is without doubt, a shockingly bad car. Electrics work sporadically. The handbrake is on and then its not, rolling back and injuring you as you exit car. The car stalls in traffic frequently at a stop. The seat belts are cheap and hang loose like a 40 year old car after moderate use. The interior lights on dash don’t work unless all headlights are on and I could go on but I won’t. So many other cars beat this hands down.

I would recommend, but prefer the Golf as it has more technology such as adaptive cruise control, as well as details like a 12v cigarette lighter in the rear seats and boot. I should have bought a car with the convinience pack as I miss having a dimming rear view mirror and dipping reverse mirror – you get these in a Golf. That’s why buying a SEAT is cheaper, but it's still fun to drive.

So I bought this car in Feb 16 and not even 6 months into ownership and I already can't wait to get rid of it. I have loved this mk 3 Leon since the day it came out, you can't deny it's great looks, which is the annoying thing. Many of things bug me on this car, most annoying being the thirsty engine which infact is suppost to be one of the most economical cars on the market today which is laughable. Was told by the salesman it would reach at least 70mpg if not 65mpg going off the commuting I do to work and back, still yet to reach 55mpg. Absolute joke. The car has covered 13K miles and has been nothing but un-economical. I owned an Ibiza previous to this car and that had a 1.4 petrol engine and managed 60mpg so this makes me wonder if theres something seriously wrong with this car? Engine is also awfully loud, especially for a diesel, sounds very blowy and always sits at high revs when stationary when the start/stop has a mind of it's own which is normally daily. I think seat have cut corners massively on this car, like no 6th gear in the 1.6 SE Tdi which I think would make a huge differance to econemy and motorway driving. The other really annoying thing is theres always a strange clunk noise from the clutch when going from 3rd to 4th which has happened since day 1 of owning the car. Another annoying noise, the fuel sloshing around in the tank. Awfully noisy and I can even hear it over my music! After reading a lot of reviews you hear a lot of Leon owners complaining about this. It's going into the dealership at only 6 months old due to a fault on the fan coming on every journey and staying on for a worrying amount of time. There is some really good points about this car, it is very comfy to drive long distance, the DAB radio is spot on, the LED lights look great during the day and project light amazingly at night on dark roads, it actually handles quite well for an SE and it feels much more better quality than the previous ibiza I owned. But everything I mentioned just let's the car down as a whole. Definatly going for a Volvo or Kia or something along those lines next. Even owned french cars which seem better than this Leon at times. 2nd owned Seat and will definatly 100% be my last. I'm wondering if the engine is part of the millions made by VW which were in the big scandal?

I'm very sad to be leaving a bad review of car in which we had so much belief. In fact if SEAT had helped us sort it out, I wouldn't writing this review. My wife loved her 2002 Leon Cupra for 11 more or less fault-free years which lead to her buying this FR 1.8 TSI manual. The power output of her mk1 Cupra and the new FR is about the same but the older car felt much quicker than the new model. It just doesn't feel fast! Annoying issues. There is no alarm / warning for low washer fluid and you will see lots of Leons driving around with their headlights on because there is no alarm on the headlight setting. At night you switch off, no alarm so you drive around all the next day with headlights! Otherwise, first impressions were very positive but we quickly discovered a hesitancy between gears 1 and 2. We were told by Holders SEAT that this was a software issue and SEAT would need to release a software update to rectify. That was two years ago. To be fair, Holders did try to sort out the problem three times but each time the problem has returned. So we are left with a car that when my wife wants to pull out on to a busy A-road, leaves her playing Russion Roulette with articulated lorries because of this issue. Totally unacceptable! So a relationship built up with a brand is again dashed by the brand's inability to sort out a simple problem for a customer. Bye bye SEAT. If you are considering the Leon, which may well be a decent car if you get a good one, check the above issue. It will be difficult to observe on a brand new car!

We picked the car up from Arnold Clark autostore at 5 months old & 6,000 miles. The car had a full service history from local garage and it's now 3 years and 6 months old with 25,500 miles on the clock. Last week we began to notice it was becoming quite hard to find 1st gear. Took it to local garage, who we have used for 10 years, who put it up on ramps and identified leaking gearbox oil and a repair bill of £2,000. I phoned SEAT customer service who advised a goodwill payment seemed reasonable due to age/mileage, but the car must be sent to a SEAT garage for inspection. SEAT now says they will not make the goodwill payment as we used a non-SEAT garage for services - our nearest garage is 30 miles away, and the quotation for the repair is £3,800! What's worse is to have the car back from the SEAT garage and the bill is £500 just for an inspection! Never buy a SEAT or expect any consideration from their customer service!

Fantastic visual design that is different from the other brands. Draws attention from people. Great performance from a well put together car that offers full value for money compared to similar engined vehicles such as the golf r. Good to have excellent follow up service from seat.

A good family car, which is why we've kept it. It is no longer serviced the dealer as it was too expensive for a routine service so we use our local garage and that's fine. Within a few months one of the dash lights stopped working, which is annoying, but is apparently hard to get to and would take a couple of (expensive) hours so has never been put right, otherwise it's been pretty reasonable to put things right as they've gone wrong. We shall keep driving it until it starts to become unreliable, hopefully a few more years.

Not had our 1.2tsi se leon long and was unsure the 1.2 engine would be too small but found it much more responsive and torquey than my previous 1.6. This is my 2nd leon and still love the sporty looks and drive. Seems to be much better built than my first leon.

Very reliable, like my previous japanese cars. Good mix of performance and economy with this 130tdi engine, but expensive to buy second hand because of this. Comfort and interior build quality should be better. Handling is disappointing, manages to be dull to drive and still have a poor ride quality.

3rd Leon I have owned and definitely my last. Suspension is harder, no power in 1st and 2nd gears, "juddery" in 3rd gear, "clunky" gearbox and a very noisy fuel tank when tank is between full and half-full !! Can hear the fuel in tank surge forward and back every time the car comes to a stop as it makes 2 very definite 'thuds", and can hear it sloshing around as it settles. SEAT unhelpful, describing it as a "characteristic" of the new design, and they are aware of the issue but unable to do anything about it post-manufacture. VERY disappointed. Seat fabric shows every mark and fingerprint, as does the plastic dash, so constantly looks grubby. Going to swap for a different brand of car asap, and staying away from SEAT in future. Yes it is cheaper than the Golf, but you get what you pay for? Would not recommend this car unless you want a disappointing drive and extremely irritatingly noisy fuel tank which can be heard over the radio!

Love the fl interior much better than my pre fl leon. Very frugal and a good looking car that undercuts the golf on price and outperforms on style!!

Excellent value for money, quality of build and has real smile factor with outstanding performance, yet is well behaved and easy to drive around town or in heavy traffic

A very frugal car feels sporty and looks good, compared to the golf blue motion offers very good value in a nicer looking package.

For the money you pay there isnt a better built or reliable car on the road. Combined with the right level of style and german thinking, there isnt much better than my seat.

A very good looking five door hot hatch which is easy to drive either slow or fast. I bought it for primarily for looks but it is also very good valus in comparison to equivalent performance gold gti's. Reliability and quality has been superb to date with no issues at all.
