Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Seat Leon estate?

You’d expect anybody who buys an estate car to make extensive use of the boot space. As a used car buyer it’s therefore important to check for dog hair or muddy carpets, as well as the general condition of the boot and rear bumper.

That aside the Leon ST is so far proving to be perfectly durable, and scores above average for wear rates on components such as brakes and wiper blades.

There have also been some reports of trim rattling and minor electrical gremlins, so be sure to prod all the buttons to make sure everything works.

Is a used Seat Leon estate reliable?

According to our latest What Car? Reliability survey, the diesel Leon is not quite as reliable as the petrol-engined versions. The petrol car came in 10th place out of 24 cars in the family car class and the diesel-engined car came 11th.

Seat as a brand managed to finish in 17th out of the 30 manufacturers featured.
