Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Seat Toledo hatchback?
Front parking sensors aren’t standard on all models, so you should check the front bumper for any scuffs or signs of poor paint repair. Look at the wheels for signs of curb damage, because alloys can be expensive to repair.
Have a good poke around the interior and inspect the plastics for scuff marks and scratches. Play around with all the electrical items to make sure they all work. Also, check that the air conditioning still throws out cold air, otherwise it might need to be re-gassed.
What are the most common problems with a used Seat Toledo hatchback?
There have been a couple of recalls for the Toledo, including one for child door locks that might disengage without the driver knowing. This affects cars built between 25 November 2015 and 14 April 2016. The second recall is for front seatbelt tensioners on cars built between 1 May 2016 and 31 October 2016. Contact your local Seat dealer for further information.
Is a used Seat Toledo hatchback reliable?
Seat, as a brand, ranked 10th out of 31 manufacturers for cars aged between one and four years old in the latest What Car Reliability Survey – a good result. The Toledo didn’t feature, but the Skoda Rapid, on which the Toledo is based, was included. It placed 10th out of 27 family cars surveyed.
