    My car

    Well what can I say,after being totally disappointed with my Honda Civic (See my review) I traded it in for one of these babies.What a difference!It really puts the fun back into driving and makes you want to overtake everything on the road with all of the 170 horses on tap.Love the car and I would say it is in the top 3 of my all time favourites.If I had to moan, I'm only getting 38mpg but like I said earlier, it makes you want to drive everywhere fast so I'm not suprised with the mpg!

    My car

    I have now owned the car since February 2008 and have now covered 9000 trouble free miles. My car previous to this was the Leon TDI Sport 140bhp on a 56 place, and boy does the Fr have more punch. overall im down 5mpg and am averageing 42mpg to the sport i previosul had, one thing i noticed is the fr appears to be better built and is a lot quieter. One thing i have noticed is that if you use shell fuel the car runs more smoothly and is more economical compaired to esso or morrisons fuel. interior is good, and again found the climate control to work better in the fr than i did the sport. as seen from other reviews perhaps people are experencing a common fault with the system, perhaps a faulty sensor somewhere. my car is candy white and I have opted for winter pack especially for our cold winters in Buxton and bluetooth, i decided to stay with the 17in alloys as i think they look better than the 18inchers.The car never stops peoples heads turning and admiring the it as i drive past, sometimes people who are driving are to busy looking at the car than when they should be watching where they are driving. overall the car is fantasitic, handling is superb, I have done a Jeremy Clarkson and am curretly suffering a bad back due to the hard conering i do in the car on the cat and fiddle road, so have now eased off until my back is better. hopefully the long arm of the law wont read this as im the only one with the white leon fr that uses that road.

    My car

    I bought my FR in february and I must admitt it has been a very good experiance. The car handles very well, the motor is stunning with the 170 hbp ready at your command and the running cost are acceptable (17,5 km per litre after 12000 km)

    drawbacks: none
