I have had my little Ibiza for a year now - and it is the newest car I've ever had, I must say I do rather enjoy tootling round in Betty (!!). I drive 20k plus miles a year, so I am really making the car work, I did buy a petrol rather than a diesel and to be honest it has not cost me any extra, and I get on average 48-49 mpg which I feel is fairly good. I fill up once a week at £40-45 which is extortionate, but probably more to do with the price of petrol than the economical value of the car. Passed its MOT no problem, but, I tend to find the services are more expensive than they have been for previous cars, and with the added mileage I am ... Read the complete review

Having received this car second hand, I was not expecting too much from this little hatch. Coming from the global VW badge, the Seat Ibiza is a sport little car that combines great handling with a spritely 1.4 litre engine. My only concern of the engine is that the torque band is very low and it requires a fair amount of revving to get it up to power, lowering the miles per gallon figure. This aside though, the Ibiza really does give an excellent ride. On motorways, the car is easily able to keep up with traffic and even power past much more powerful cars. It really comes to life on country roads though where the nimble handling and the high gears really come to life and Read the complete review

I've had my used Seat for just over 6 months now and have done 6000+ miles in rain, snow, sleet.... the motorway to the narrow mountain roads of North Wales.... So here's what I learnt... Costing me just over £3000 (33K..low mileage) from the Seat dealers, I have got to say it probably wasn't what you'd call a bargain but I do not regret buying it for a second... The GOOD.... Beauty is in the eye of the beholder... so if you like your cutesy, dainty look of the citreon Saxo.... you may find the Seat a tad brutish looking... but it does have a loyal following of people who absolutely love its looks... and it has the biggest Yahoo club ...

Having owned this car for 6 months or so I am starting to believe that I will stick with Seat for quite a while. The marque is distintly undervalued by the public, and the longer it stays that way the longer we can keep enjoying it's low prices. A fairly young car manufacturer, the first range of cars brought out by Seat, were to be frank, very poor. The components were badly designed and poorly fitted resulting in a dull looking car that rattled and generally didn't compete, except in Spain as the Skoda/Lada equivalent. But in 1992 the Volkswagen Group recognised that Seat had some great factory premises, cheap labour and tax costs and they ... Read the complete review

This is a great little car for in the city driving. I've had my Seat Ibiza for the last 3 years and when I purchased it, it was 3 years old with 28,000 miles on the clock. I only do about 8,000 miles a year myself, so it doesn't get pushed too hard, but touch wood, up to now, I have found it to be a great reliable little car. ========= Good Points ========= It's very easy to drive. The gears are light and easy to operate, they just pop in to the chosen gear with ease. I've had an Audi and a Mercedes in the past, both very good quality cars, but both with quite awkward gear boxes! The power steering is also very responsive and light and is ...
