Did you buy this car new?
What price did you pay?
When did you buy the car?
Did you get a good deal and why?
Got a very good deal. As this version of the car within 30 miles of my address was a lot more expensive. Had only done 20,000 miles.
Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Needed something more economical. So chose a diesal version of the ibiza. Plus really liked the way it looks.
What was the dealer like?
Terrible, really slow, told me one price on my part ex then the next day when I went back tried to offer less. Took ages to pay off my outstanding finance, they ended up paying it late so I incured a charge of £15. I know it's not a lot but it's the principle of the matter. They assured me a service would only need to be carried out on the car in March, next day the service light came on. Rang the dealer they said to bring it back and they would do it but I had to pay full price. Explained that this was put of order so they reduced it down to £50 but conveniently could never fit me in! Would never buy from them again.
What's it like to drive?
Lovely to drive does feel lower to the ground than my last car so I do feel the bumps a bit more although not to the point of annoyance. Fast from standstill or when you need to overtake on the motorway, easy motorway cruiser. Economical I get mid to late 50 ' s have never got the mpg the manufacturer has stated but then again which car does!
What's it like to park?
Very easy to park massive mirrors so you see everything.
Living with it
Have you had any problems with the car?
In the 4 mths of ownership and 10,000 miles nothing has gone wrong. Has been a great car to drive. Although not enough storage inside the car, glove box is tiny doesn't even fit cd's so fitted sone underseat storage boxes which have sorted the issue.
What's most practical about your car?
Massive boot for a 3 door coupe. Air conditioning is fantastic.
Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Air conditioning is ice cold and works brilliantly. Fold in electric wing mirrors .
