Recommendation for SEAT's aftercare.

When a connecting rod failed and punched a hole in the side of the 1.9TDI engine block of my 2007 SEAT Leon, I didn’t hold out much hope of a happy outcome. SEAT UK and Miller and Middleton SEAT in Colchester responded quickly and superbly with co-ordinated and textbook customer care, and I now have a SEAT sourced new engine married to a new turbo and clutch (the latter being precautions that I was happy to pay for myself given the mileage). All this came with a two year SEAT warranty. My contribution to the new engine was just £1728 plus VAT in a total ‘heart transplant’ package that cost £3700. A key factor in the support given was that I had bought from new and (loyally) met all the servicing and replacement intervals with the main dealer. I now effectively have a new car, good for at least another 100,000 miles at a cost significantly less than that of an equivalent second hand replacement. Well done, SEAT.
That is very good news. I'll try to run your email. Please could you add Miller and Middleton SEAT to The Good Garage Guide at:

This is the second report of a rod through the block of a VAG diesel in as many weeks.
