    ive just realised how many miles ive done in my leon! a 2001 cupra with a few goodies added for good measure. 102552 and in all that time nothing has gone wrong!except my temprature sender! :lol: except that its only had cambelt and water pump done and normal things e.g brakes and tyres.

    i dont think ill ever get rid of it and i when it goes im defo getting something from the VAG family again:seatgod:

    My 03 LCR has done 39990 ;)

    Bought it when it was 13month old, so far the following non standard failures:


    Climate control display failure - done under warranty
    Passanger Sun visor snapped - done under warranty
    Rear door lock fail (twice!) - 1st done under warranty, 2nd cost £100
    Coolant sensor - not replaced yet!

    Overall, not bad. Even though its done low mileage, I've had it for almost five years now and I wouldn't replace it because:

    (a) its been reliable (so far)
    (b) its a great car to drive and to look at
    (c) I wouldn't know what to replace it with!

    my 03 LC has just notched up 100,500 miles.

    Problems i've had are.

    engine
    2 x clutch master cylinders (one replaced under parts warranty)
    1 x clutch slave cylinder
    1 x oxygen sensor
    a few split oil breather pipes

    interior
    new drivers door locking motor.

    Thats about it. Not bad on the whole.

    44k on an 05 plate

    I have had the rear washer pipe go, replaced under warranty.

    Clutch slipped (due to remap, replaced with Sachs racing clutch)

    My brake switch also flagged up an error & light on dash, bought a new one (£6), but cleared code in VAG COM, hasn't came back yet (9 months), so havent swapped unit.

    4 Years old this year & it has been great. Breezed through 2 MOT's, even with all mods & HID's

    Y Reg- 01 Leon Cupra had it for 14 months done 22k in that time just moved house now though so should be putting a lot less on - Now at 57k total, only problem - temp sender - dodgy wing mirror both fixed under warranty oh and potentially needs a new maf. Much cheaper than my old cordoba SX

    Fix it then, very easy 1 minute fix!
