I am looking at purchasing a 58 plate (late 2008) Seat Leon FR TDi 170. I am aware of the injector recall, however I would like to know for how long the problematic injectors were a problem for?

The posts I read all reference 06, 56, 07 models...I am looking at a 58 - are they still affected?

The car I am looking at has 95,000 miles on the clock.

The quickest way is probably to phone a Seat dealer and ask. Usually recalls are "Any vehicle with a VIN in the range X to Y" - so all you need to do is find that range and make sure the car you're looking at isn't in it...

The VOSA Database also has a list of all official recalls on UK market cars or parts, and doesn't list any for a 2008 Leon.

+1 for VOSA - I was hitting the same site when I read your answer. – Bob Cross May 2 '12 at 15:31
Thanks. I'm surprised that there is nothing on the VOSA database for the injector recall. There is plenty on Google about it, unfortunately nothing about what cars are affected. Check HERE – crmpicco May 2 '12 at 15:47

Seat UK support have confirmed that the car is included in the recall and four new injectors will be replaced free of charge.
