Good value for money


The engine stalled a couple of times. The Seat service replaced the accelerator and engine throttle valve. Now it doesn't stall, but the engine has a lack of power. Feels like driving with the parking brake on. This latest problem has not yet been solved.

The paint is very thin, minor things will cause a big scratch and often bare metal is visible.

General Comments:

For an automatic car, it's very economical and good value for money.

Back seat leg space is for kids only. Though it has quite a big boot.

The dashboard also started to do some squeaking noises, which have been increasing.

Interior fabrics stain with simple rain water.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
