I bought this car car new from my local dealership which is primarily VW and has recently taken on the SEAT dealership as well. It came with 3 yrs warranty and 3 yrs breakdown cover which covers UK and Europe. So far I've been quite impressed, especially with the DSG gearbox which is incredibly smooth in the full auto mode, and can also be used in sport mode or TipTronic mode. Though the 1.2 tsi engine is a real step down from my old 2.0 tdi Jetta, it delivers plenty of power with the 0-100kph… Read Full Review

We have owned our 1.2 3 cyclinder 2002 ibiza now for about 7 months now and after owning 3 ibiza's previous to this (a 93 diesel, 96 diesel and a 97 gti) would definatly say this is the best all rounder. Only having 63 bhp the perfermance isn't amazing, but taking this into consideration the ride is smooth and the fuel consumption is pretty good, unless you do lots of motorway miles, we average around 45mpg around town, top speed is about 110mph but this is pritty much flat out and the engine… Read Full Review

I have just bought a late 2006 Seat Ibiza 1.9 TDI Sport. The car is fantastic but the only thing I would say is before buying one check the suspension bushes and brake discs.
These parts seem to wear out very quickly, lucky for me the dealer changed the discs all round (the front were changed after I got the car when I explained they were badly worn-they had only replaced the pads!)

I recently bought a 2004 1.2 Seat Ibiza from my mother who taught me to drive in it. She previously owned it for 3 years so I have a good overall experience of this car as both a passenger and a driver.
I'm not exactly sure which trim it has, but I believe it is the "1.2 Chill".
Overall we are both very happy with the car. It's been very reliable, with only one or two problems which I will describe below. It's incredibly easy to drive (and that's coming from someone who only passed their test… Read Full Review

I have had several different cars but this is the best, most reliable car. Even in this bad weather, I left it untouched for a week and it started first time no problem as it always does. For being a small engine it is so nippy and a lovely car to drive. Had never considered one before but will consider again in future… Read Full Review

Would buy again, but you need to trade it in every 3 years otherwise can work out expensive to keep on the road… Read Full Review

The engine diagnostic light has come on 8 times on my Seat Ibiza 1.2 12V. 5 times there was nothing wrong. The rear windscreen washer faulty, temperamental electrics, needed whole new suspension after 3 years, and the catalytic converter failed at 3 and a half years. The petrol cap attachment rotted and fell off, and the drinks holder snapped off. I have had a poor response from customer services and dealerships. I will never buy one again… Read Full Review

The Seat Ibiza 1.2 12V family car is excellent, lovely to drive. Even though it has a very small engine it is very nippy. The safety fetaures are excellent, anti-highjacking, central locking, imoboliser etc. I could not be more pleased with this car if I tried… Read Full Review
