(15th November 2013) 2010 Seat Exeo Diesel Manual Sedan by jay
This is a super car which I've owned for 18mts and it covered just under 70k of which I've done 30. Everyday running the car is no hastle and is a good car to drive on the commute as its comfortable and quite but as it's a 170 overtaking is easy and if your in a rush it will easily do the job.
Fuel economy is ok too once you get over the initial shock of the 65ltr tank. Generally I
See a full 600 mile to one tank and the OBC generally averages about 44mpg. The tax is a bit expensive at 175 but I think it's worth it for the few extra horses. I bought the car due to a new arrival and all the gear that goes along with it and the boot on this car is massive plenty of room for a buggy and the weekly shopping. In the cabin however it's actually a bit tight once the baby seat is behind the passenger that seat needs to be fully forward so the child has leg too also the way the back narrows you won't seat three adults in the back of this car and leg room behind the driver is poor also but the seats are comfortable and supportive and have great adjustment on them so achieving a perfect driving position is easy. As for toys my sport model has everything auto lights auto wipers and climate control. The stereo is good as standard but I personally wouldn't have minded the Bose upgrade similar to the a4.
Big bug bear with this car is the front suspension. It seems to be a fault with the style of it and the passat a4 and a skoda I think suffer the same. At about 60k the front of the car rattles and bumps going slow over uneven roads. Now I pulled out the whole top section and replaced it and it did fix it but it cost 400 for parts which around the same time as the timing belt was a big chunk of money to throw at a relatively fresh car but I suppose the excellent ride and handling has some cost. I did fit febi parts as I was assured they are superior to seat or audi parts so I will see in another 60k I suppose.
Overall this is a super car it looks sharp has plenty of toys and gadgets to keep you in control and entertained as you go about your driving. I would consider a second one come time to change as I am so pleased with it.
