Advice for buyers

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

The biggest problem area is the electrics, and Warranty Direct's figures show they account for almost a third of all its claims on Leons. In particular, electronic control units on the 110 TDi diesels are prone to fail.

Otherwise, the most important things to check are that the cambelt has been changed according to schedule time, and that there are no water leaks into the footwell.
