SEAT Leon Service
From the old Spanish Kingdom 'Leon', meaning 'Lion', the SEAT Leon exploded onto the market in 1998 and has wowed buyers ever since. Powerful, reliable, and compact enough to get you anywhere - the Leon is a great all-rounder for families as well as drivers who need a sturdy run-around.
Without regular servicing, however, even the sturdiest run-around is likely to come up against issues. So let your local Kwik Fit technicians help.
Servicing your SEAT Leon
If you use your Leon primarily to get around town and to work, we recommend an Interim service every 6 months or 6,000 miles - whichever comes soonest. This is because frequent, short journeys often cause build-up in areas such as the exhaust system and oil lines, due to the temperature not reaching a high enough point to burn off excess. Our interim checks run through common problem areas such as oil, tyre, and brake conditions, and ensure peace of mind between annual services and MOTs.
Alternatively, or in addition to, we recommend a Full Service every 12 months (or 12,000 miles). This goes through everything in the Interim Checks but also tests a number of other areas in order to keep everything running smoothly. It ensures the longevity of your vehicle, and helps to maintain its resale value.

Why not combine with your MOT?
You can combine your MOT with a full service on your SEAT in order to avoid any unexpected surprises - as well as helping to save you money on the total cost of booking both separately. Save time, and make sure your car maintenance is prioritised, by taking care of your MOT and Full Service together at Kwik Fit.
SEAT Manufacturer Service
For new or approved used Leons, a manufacturer warranty will usually cover a number of areas that may fail suddenly due to a manufacturing defect or error. It's a pain when these things break, but a manufacturer warranty can alleviate a lot of the financial stress involved.
Opting for unqualified maintenance on your vehicle, however, can often void these warranties and leave you liable for the cost of repairs.
Opt for a Kwik Fit service, where our mechanics are fully trained and use only the official SEAT tools and procedures. This ensures that your car remains roadworthy while your warranties remain valid.

Servicing for PHEV models
Due to the increasing popularity of PHEV models amongst motorists and car manufactures we also offer PHEV servicing here at KwikFit. As PHEV models work in a similar way to combustion engines, they also require a full service at the same intervals as their standard petrol and diesel counterparts.
What's involved in a PHEV service?
Even though PHEV variants operate in a similar way to internal combustion engine vehicles, if you're looking to service your Seat Leon hybrid there are several additional checks that will need to be undertaken as part of a PHEV service.
- Brake binding check - Regenerative braking is an integral part of how PHEV vehicles operate. However, brake binding can prevent this key mechanism from working as intended, which is why as part of your Seat Leon e hybrid service we check for potential brake binding and carry out any repairs if required.
- Inverter coolant check - Checking for coolant leaks is also an integral and important part of a service on a Seat Leon PHEV. However, inverter coolant isn't the same as engine coolant, inverter coolant is required for the energy conversion that takes place between the DC and AC power in the electric motor.
- Cable check - A visual inspection of high voltage cables will be carried out, the purpose is to check for external damage and ensure all cables are in full working order.
- Fault code check - This check will ensure there aren't any faults with key components such as the vehicle's battery and all other parts monitored by the vehicle's ECUs (Electronic Control Units).
