What; nothing between 150 b.h.p. and 290 b.h.p.
A disaster, I shall not be trading in my 1.8 petrol for another Seat; the Cupra is too expensive.
May have to be a Golf or buy from the Far East, what a pity.
SEAT's answer to my original complaint was that the panel lights dim to remind you to switch on your headlights and was a safety feature.
I asked them 'what is safer both hands on the wheel or one hand on the wheel and one on the light switch and in high summer too'.
They could not answer...
City Motor Holdings are now in receivership.
That means no Seat, Skoda, Ford, Citroen, Peugeot, Honda dealers in Basingstoke.
Nearest Seat dealer is 13 miles away, so no more pick up and return.
I am hopeful that someone will buy it.
I found a setting deep in the menu which enables the panel lights to be dimmed and I generally drive around with the headlights full on to avoid the distraction of losing the dash lighting when a sparrow flies over the car!
I recon ECO mode is dangerous, because you think you are driving a Leon SC 1.8 DSG and in fact you have the performance of a 2CV i.e. 0-60 mph eventually.
Very easy to be lured into a dangerous situation on roundabouts and junctions.
I did two identical journeys over two days.
First as I usually drive, a mixture of Sport and Normal, returning 35.5 mpg.
Second all in ECO, returning 35.4 mpg.
Mixture of dual carriageway and urban about 15 miles.
So ECO mode is useless and probably only used when testing on the rolling road...
This morning it came on OK, so I disabled 'Show clock on standby'.
BTW I did nothing to turn it off.
I searched the manual and could find nothing on how to turn Multi Function Screen on and off: how did you do it?
