Other SEAT Ibiza (2008 - 2017) models:

  • Summary

    1 out of 5 1.0

    What does this car say about you?

    Cant afford an VW.

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

    It looked great, white with black alloys, sports exhaust, FR grille and black windows, plus we had the factory rear spoiler fitted from new.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Never, put me off Seats for life. Where was the 65 mpg promised? 45 was more like it, with 50 on a motorway. we sold it early it was that bad... Our Corsa Black edition turbo petrol matches those figures and the corsa has suspension too.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    We will keep the Corsa another year, its the car the Seat should have been...

  • Driving it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    What's it like to drive?

    It had the worst ride I have ever experienced, the suspension was way too hard. after an hour it left you with chronic backache. Bland steering was just about ok.

    What's it like to park?

    Average, not the best to see out of, but thats normal for a three door I guess.

  • Living with it

    1 out of 5 1.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Lots. 3 warranty issues. Wheelbearing was noisy, replaced after a year. ABS failure, scary as the brakes hardly worked. ECU needed replacing at least twice.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Big boot.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    My other car, it was not in the garage all the time, unlike the seat. but in the spec we had it did look good.
