1996 Seat Ibiza Salsa 1.0 from UK and Ireland
A low maintenence, ideal first car
The bumpers have faded in colour badly and "back to black" spray didn't work.
The fanbelt went faulty at 61000 miles.
The bonnet opener snapped and the bonnet also doesn't close properly.
The paint is rusting in spots at 6 years old.
This car is very nippy for a 1L. The pickup speed is slow, but it will comfortably do 70mph.
The front seats are uncomfortable.
The doors are too heavy for the size of the car.
Fuel consumption is quite high.
I crashed this car at low speed into the rear of another car and the whole front practically fell off; bumper, headlights the lot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
