In their own words

Originally bought this car for my wife as she required a run around with a little more space than her mini (now that we have a dog and a baby in tow). In a moment of weakness; having given in to my wife's persuasions I somehow agreed to swap my 4x4 with her, and for the past 15 months this car has been 60+ miles a day daily commuter. What a pleasant surprise this car is! Decent on fuel, cheap to tax and insure, looks good, and even though a relatively basic model it has all the toys (sat nav, cruise control etc.) you could want - I can even connect both my mobile phones to the bluetooth at once. The car handles really well although you do have work the revs to gain any noticeable pace, but considering the car only has a 1.2L engine it doesn't feel under powered during motorway driving. If originally bought for myself as our main car I may have opted for the more powerful 1.4 turbo petrol, but that said I am more than happy with the car. The boot is a great size and fits the dog cage easily, room in the back is good, and accommodates the masses of equipment/Isofix stuff required for a baby quite easily. Parts are relatively cheap having bought a new wing mirror after a passing lorry stole mine, and having just had x2 new tyres front tyres fitted they were reasonably priced too. My only gripe would be that the seats could do with a little more support, I found my back aching slightly, and had a numb bum on my drive back from Glasgow to the Midlands. I would definitely pick this car over a more expensive VW Golf. Having recently driven a 6 month old bluemotion for a week, the drive was similar, but the Golf's boot was tiny and not family friendly in comparison, whilst the fuel economy with my heavy right foot was no better. No plans to trade the Leon in anytime soon, and I will continue proudly park the trusty Leon in the work carpark next to the bigger flashy cars.
