Been mine for the last two years roughly and provided sterling service but I haven't used it since June when the MOT ran out and I can't see me bothering again, I'm getting too close to the end of my current work contract and I'm enjoying my Vito plus need to clear the decks.

The car.

2001 Leon, bodywork rust free and reasonably presentable, stupid things like the wing is silver but clearly been resprayed, looks ok but not a perfect match, front bumper hanging off a bit on one side due to a stupid high curb in work catching it.

Engine and box are superb, I swapped the box on it as I lost 5th after it's one and only FTP. After I swapped out and stripped the old one it turned out that the 5th gear retaining circlip had fallen off!!! A ten minute fix, but I did find a chipped tooth and the box had been run for years without oil so scrapped it anyway. Works fine now. Literally just remembered I put a cat on it as the old downpipe failed.

Starts first time everytime no matter what, doesn't use oil or water, returns 47mpg with all types of driving, have had 600 miles out of a tank and that worked out over 50mpg. Punchy engine too, pulls like a, well, fill in your own description there!!

NEVER let me down engine wise, not even hinted at it. I have had one FTP though. A previous owner changed the engine in it so I was told, he must have tightened the engine mounts to 600nM and caused severe fatigue on the bolt. I'd noticed it occasionally rocking after a long run (I was using it 3 times a week back and forth Swansea to Swindon, approx 500 miles). I ignored it as it was infrequent until I found getting gear really hard, this was unbeknown to me because the passenger side engine mount was held on by about 1/2 a thread of bolt. This failed, caused major stress on the other one and then the engine dropped down whilst I was driving along at 30. The only real casualty was the driveshaft which rubbed against the chassis rail and broke the outer CV. I replaced with new, fitted a second hand mount off the other box and way to go. Soon lost 5th so changed that box anyway as stated above, lovely fresh gear oil in it, changes really well for one of these boxes, no whining etc.

Interior let's it down a bit, everything works including elec Windows and Aircon but my dog took a liking to the passenger seat and chewed the fabric, he also broke the glovebox lid in the same incident, cheers Chester. It just feels a bit grubby and weathered although surprisingly not worn through anywhere.

The catch.

It passed the last MOT needing a few advisories which were mostly done by me including a major oil leak (loose turbo oil feed pipe) and in doing so I replaced the wiper blades as they were pants. While doing this, the arm spring dropped into the screen and cracked it. I've driven it for another year like this as it wasn't in the driver's vision. But looking at the MOT rules it will fail due to this.
I genuinely can't see what else it will fail on bar possibly rear discs that are a bit ridged however these weren't even mentioned on the last MOT so perhaps not, perhaps a few bulbs.
I'm tempted to MOT it myself and put it on gumtree for £650 with a years ticket but cannot be arsed really so I'm offering it at a steal really. It drives great, by all means come and try it, no problem. It has a decent battery as well and included are 2 steel wheels and 2 extra alloys. It's fitted with golf GTi alloys as I detest steel wheels, these vastly improved the ride quality on it, one has a flat though and another a really slow puncture.

It's not completely fucked as I wouldn't sell it on here. I'm offering it at just above scrap really add I could remove the alloys and battery, possibly cat, James brown and get my money that way but I'd like to see it live on as it's a good car that I've put 45k on in 17 months!!!

Contact through here initially please all.

Thanks for reading.

Any interest in this? I'm away until next Wednesday from this Wednesday and then I think it could be time to scrap it, shame really.

Needs a picture or two I think, would probably spark some interest. Great price, someone's bound to take it off your hands for that.

Possible it has the veg-able fuel system, with wvo this'd be cheaper than walking, especially if it's post Spring '01 and the cheap tax.

Definitely the veg friendly VE TDI at this age, SEAT and Skoda stuck with them for longer than VW and Audi. Also plug and play remaps available.

100% the ve pumped motor.
Don't think it's been fettled with but bags of power, very torquey which was a characteristic of the ve over the pd.
I even have a spare engine that could go with it for a bit extra.

Being offered £165 from some scrap my car sites although I'd love to see it live on, screen apart there's nothing wrong with it really.

I was just looking through the MOT history and realised it's never failed on anything worse than tyres or brake pads.

The last one drew a few advisories but as the tester said, they're all related to the oil leak that's long since been sorted. It's all been washed off underneath and as most SEATS of this era is pretty spotless.

You might find a Roffle find it a new home.

Car sounds good with a few minor issues only (assumed)

It will be the assumed MOT that is holding it back and I'd get a picture up some folk can see the car and the Reg number and then they can check history for themselves.

If a winning Roffler got it on a tenner worth of tickets, five Aryton Siennas on a collection, same again on an MOT and then just the screen to be seen maybe they could be all in for £400

You won't find a diesel in running condition for much cheaper. I've been looking at the arse end of the market for some running examples and you don't get much for more than £1000 so this is a mega bargain even if it does need some money put in to.
