What should I look for in a used Seat Exeo saloon?

The Exeo's interior shares many parts with the previous-generation Audi A4 range, but that's no bad thing, because it was always one of the classiest compact executive cars around. Everything in the Exeo's cabin has a built-to-last feel, and the materials are nicely finished. On the downside, Seat didn't perform that well in our latest Reliability Survey, while Audi finished mid-table.

We've heard reports of leaking windscreen washer fluid and, not surprisingly, high oil usage, given that it's a VW-group engine.
