Other SEAT Ibiza (2008 - 2017) models:

  • Summary

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What does this car say about you?

    That I like red (it's my third red car) and fit into SEAT's under 35 demographic!

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Think it's good looking and comfortable/quiet - they also probably think I earn more than I do!

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes, been a good deal - great having a VW at lower prices - hasn't let me down and averages 45mpg.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    I like the new Leon so might upgrade to that or get a sportier Ibiza. Or if I fancy a GT86!

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    September 2011

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Great deal on the finance, no deposit and £180 a month. Gave me a cheque for my old car which covered more than the first year's payments. Interest rate could be lower but given no deposit I was really happy - a lot of the small monthly payment deals require 3 or 4 grand down!

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Needed to change from my expensive RX-8, SEAT were doing a great finance deal at the time and wrote me a cheque for the old car so was perfect.

    What was the dealer like?

    Run of the mill, wanted to get the sale but wasn't too pushy.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Nice, sometimes lacks poke when you need it but only very rarely, nippy enough round town.

    What's it like to park?

    Decent visibility and a good size, so no problem.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    The AM band on the stereo stopped working intermittently, took it to the dealer and part was replaced under warranty no problems at all.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Big boot, can get (and have had) five adults in although not good for a long journey. Has been comfortable for four of us on long journeys, although swooping roofline does compromise headroom but hey, it is a 3 door after all! Also been good for trips to IKEA!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Cruise control, folding mirrors, the AUX in for my iPhone - this car really has a lot of kit for the money and class - I would find it hard moving to another car without these features!
