I owned the 1.6 petrol for 7 months from new & had to get rid because I only averaged 25mpg,sometimes less.Lots of blindspots & reversing impossible without parking sensors.Bought car cos of big boot wish I hadn`t bothered.
I have owned this seat toledo 2.0tdi sport dsg for over a month now and me and the wife + little one are so pleased with it i to do not understand the lower rating as it is the same car as the altea yes the rear end takes a bit of getting used to but the pay off is a huge boot. The engine pulls at any speed and quitens down once warm the dsg gear box is superb in any mode (normal sport or manual).This car came fully loaded with all the usual + heated seats the bluetooth coms pack and plenty more so for £13,000 grand for a car which isn't even a year old i think it was a bargain.I think the magazines go on about the blindspots to much as it is not causing us any probs + they go on about the sports suspenion being to firm well i can say that the mazda 6 suspension was far worse.All in all this is a great car that looks different is built on the vw golf platform so we get the last laugh for not paying vw prices i would recomend this car to any one who just wants 5 seats big boot and something that makes people stop and look
I bought this car from new without any reference to magazine reviews. I had been interested in the Altea, but my wife preferred the Toledo due to the size of the boot.
The ride position is very good - it feels like an MPV without the feeling that you are driving a mini-bus (a feeling I got in many of the bigger MPVs I test-drove!).
I do not know how What Car? could give the Altea a four-star rating and the Toledo only a two-star rating, simply because the Toledo has a more spacious boot. Work that one out!
I have been very pleased with the car, although it did blow a turbo at 21,000 miles. However, the garage assured me that this was a first, so we shall wait and see.
I bought the Special Edition 2.0TDi in Black Magic in January. It was an alternative to the Golf and A3 and I didn't need a four-ringed badge. It came with automatic xenon lights, parking sensors, bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, fpur electric mindows, 18-inch polished BBS alloys, rain sensing wipers and leather upholstery. At £18k it was more than a match for the competition.
It drives really well, has loads of grunt and a massive boot, though the rear looks reflect this. I have covered about 1500 miles, mostly around town, averaging about 38mpg. It seems a little low, but I need to get it out onto the motorway to really tell what it'll do.
A headlight-washer cover has just fallen off, so now I can see how Seat deal with this. Otherwise I'm really pleased.

Just completed 100k miles in my company Mondeo which I've had for just over two years and am still delighted with it. No rattles, no squeaks and never…
Bought car 2009 at 40k miles on clock. Since then I've had to replace both rear electronic brake calipers, to be fair this is probably wear and tear…
