    My wife recently wrote off her much loved Audi TT and has replaced it with a Seat Leon. It's a year or so old and has 23k miles. My first impressions: Pros: It has rear doors, rear seats and a boot that are actually useful (compared to the TT ;)) Engine is very quiet and smooth when warm, not...

    Just recently bought this car and noticed a smell of fumes inside yesterday. Had a look and found that a hose from the oil segregator on the rear of the engine was not connected (I think this is part of the crankcase ventilation system). The hose is the one which runs across the rear of the...
