Excelent Car — the acceleration on my eon is fantastic if you consider the fact it weighs a tone, its breakind is very good too, the handling isnt too great but nothings perfect, the only problem iv had with this car was that it was misfireing due to the fact it needed a new coil pack and spark plugs, other than that its been very good to me. the interior on the leon is standard yet is still cool for people under 30 th enjoy while the exterior has a mean look about it a yes it may be big from the rear but man its a good ookin car, the fuel is fantastic and lasts forever, so it seems with its huge 65 ltr fuel tank it dose on a full tank 26 miles a day an will last 2 weeks drivind economicaly of couse and finally the fun factor, well actually it dosnt have one, its actually quite dull but thats why so many people love them

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap, relaible, spacious and smooth drive

Cons: dont get one if u cant reverse park or your short

Good To Drive And Not A Boyracer.... Lol — Performance-Not great with power, really slow to get going but the handling and ride comfort is great so its something nice about it. Build Quality-Apart from driver error great car but the electronics do get a bit emotional from time to time. Appearance-Good looking simply as. Cost of Ownership-Could be better but again it is down to the way you drive it really, and well easy going on maintence. Fun Factor- Yes and no but its something u could drive everyday and not get pissed off with which is a good.

Pros: Easy to drive.

Cons: No major ones just lots of small ones with mine.

Suits Me Best At This Time — it's 1.4 v16, kinda slow uphill, lots of shifting needed, but rocks elsewhere. got 225/45/r17 wheels, extra grip; nails corners like a cake. appearance was improved by the previous owner; black tinted rear window and a nice aileron mid-back.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it's good to begin with

Cons: none

Great Car — Great car, reliable, quick, it handles well and it's different. I think it's a great looking car but that's up to you to decide. I was sad to sell it, but when I did I bought another one, only a bit newer with a bigger engine...

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: none

Seat Leon Cupra — Handles brilliantly considering it's so bulky, the suspension can be a little hard to some people at lower speeds but the car doesnt roll badly when cornering which is a big plus in my eyes. The Leon is rated higher in handling than the all popular Ford Focus in the same class! The performance puts a smile on my face most days as the turbo lag is quite minimal and the engine picks up very well. The Cupra R is by far the best looking model. Build quality is fairly good as against too it's sister the VW Golf, but has the odd rattle. Running costs can be high. Very fun car to drive when you want it to be, but also sensible as a daily drive.

Pros: Handling, looks, build quality, engine sounds solid and goes very well.

Cons: Drinks petrol quickly if on boost, interior rattles can get annoying and the yellow paintwork is hard to match.

Cupra Disappointment — Never enjoyed this car. Had high hopes for it. It got rave reviews. Tested it against the Golf Gti and it was miles better - much faster, quieter, better handling and (apparently) built just as well. It was just a big let down to own. It fooled me by feeling very good up to 8/10ths but then losing the plot in those final 2/10ths. I also had constant problems, breakdowns and niggles with it from day one. Luckily the dealership went out of its way to ensure that everything was always dragged out with as much pain as possible; even the tiny stuff was given the full Keystone Cops treatment. By the end of my time with this car I was very glad to see the back of it.

Pros: Cheap, quick, practical.

Cons: Cheap, unreliable, dealers.
