Early days yet, as only second week of ownership. Specced it up with alloy wheels, sunroof, mudflaps, armrest [a £179 addition, ouch!], driving pack, sat-nav [paid separately], auto-brake function, 5 years' warranty extension, metallic paint and paint protection. Currently on offer with 3 years' interest free credit [so doubt Skoda version a better finance deal] plus 3 years' free servicing thrown in. Got £372 off list price, paid max deposit and it's £126 per month. Prefer 'look' of SEAT to Skoda or VW versions. Good to drive, 5'10" friend sat easily in back, even with front passenger seat back. Plenty of 'toys' to play with [pity leather steering wheel/gear knob not an option on this spec]. All passengers like it so far. Only grumbles to date, [i] heating a bit hit & miss, frozen snow overnight ~ no heated windscreen [but heated rear window and door mirrors]; [ii] armrest fouls handbrake and seat belts [a review had pointed this out ~ I've developed a twisted left-hand routine to overcome this!]. Will update after a few months' usage. Happy to date with purchase.
