I'm currently on my 3rd Leon but I've decided to go for something a bit different. A BMW 335d xdrive. 0-60 in 4.8 seconds and 630nm torque!
I'll be sad to see the Leon go :cry: , but I'm sure I'll be back, probably in a 4 wheel drive Cupra if/when they finally release one.
This doesn't matter unless you are thinking of keeping it for more than 3 years. Leasing and buying seem to break even at around 3 1/2 years so the loss you make from new when trading in is about the same as having leased for 3 1/2 years.
One negative about leasing is condition - you get...
I would say it is unreasonable under any circumstances for a starter motor to wear out within 3 years. If it's due to the stop/start then as CyberGene says, it's VAGs problem. The law is on our side :D
