Seat Leon >> Longlife service

The Longlife Service enables longer service intervals according to the respective personal driving style and the operating conditions of the vehicle.


For the Longlife service a special Longlife engine oil is required.

Vehicles with PR number "QI6" have the Longlife Service activated ex-factory. This means that the vehicles are provided with a flexible service interval indicator and are equipped with the following components:

  • Flexible service interval display in dash panel insert
  • Engine oil level sender
  • Brake pad wear indicator (if fitted)

For vehicles with Longlife Service, the service interval is calculated by the control unit and reported to the driver on the service interval indicator.

Calculating the maintenance intervals:

  • To calculate the service intervals for vehicles with Longlife service, input values such as distance driven, fuel consumption, oil temperature and load of diesel particulate filter are evaluated.
  • These can be derived from the degree of usage of the engine oil depending on the thermal loading.
  • The engine oil wear determines the travelling distance that can be performed up until the next customer service interval elapses.

Time or mileage dependent service

Vehicles with PR numbers "QI1", "QI2", "QI3", "QI4" or "QI7" have fixed service intervals. The specified distance or time has been calculated and determined in advance by SEAT.

  • PR QI1: Service interval every 5,000 km or once a year (fixed)
  • PR QI2: Service interval every 7,500 km or once a year (fixed)
  • PR QI3: Service interval every 10,000 km or once a year (fixed)
  • PR QI4: Service interval every 15,000 km or once a year (fixed)
  • PR QI7: Service interval every 10,000 miles or once a year (fixed)

These service intervals are also valid from a technical point of view, even in event of adverse driving conditions.

Vehicles with PR number "QI6" are equipped with activated Longlife Service (flexible service intervals) ex-factory, it is however possible, to modify the programming to time or distance dependent service (fixed service interval), for example, when no Longlife engine oil is used.
