1998 Seat Alhambra TDI 1.9TD from UK and Ireland
Great MPV, excelent VW build & engines at lower cost
Very little so far - the Air Con does not seem very effective and by sounds of other comments this is a known (and to be expected) problem.
The alarm easily triggered if rear windows left slightly ajar - and the kids do seem to knock the handle to open them this much!
Love the MPV thing, 7, 6, 5, 4, or 2 seats and all that space. Great for carrying adults in comfort (or kids), all proper seats and proper belts and not climbing over each other to get in/out.
The VW diesel is excellent although slightly under powered (but my previous car was 150hp petrol)!
Absolutely no problems with plastic trim, do not understand the other comments about trim, we have 2 kids, previous owner had older kids - 120,000 miles and nothing broken.
The cruise and remote radio controls very nice.
When I replace it, hope to get a new shape 115HP Tiptronic, no other car or MPV for me! Recommend the SE for the extras (front heated screen, darkened windows, lumber support, cruise, etc).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
