What Should I Look for When Buying a Used Leon

There are many considerations you should take when picking up a used SEAT, even though they are durably built vehicles that last. Lets begin with the Leon specific considerations you should have when purchasing one used. They have been known for faulty boots with reports of boots becoming stuck and failing to open. Just make sure you check the boot while taking it out for a test drive. 

Leon’s are recommended a cambelt change around 60,000 miles. Service records will indicate if this has been done. If you are looking at a used Leon that has similar mileage to this and it has not had a cambelt change you will want to budget for this. This can also be a negotiating point on price.

Aside from those points you’ll just want to think about the same general points that you’ll want to consider. This includes the condition of the exterior looking for any scratches, dents or low-quality repair work. Also take note of how well maintained the interior is. This can offer insight to what attitude the previous owner had towards the vehicle.
