1999 Seat Ibiza S 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Fun drive marred by minor faults
General buzzes and rattles.
Stereo that didn't want to find a channel in town.
Air vents that fell off.
Bonnet catch mechanism snapped.
I bought a 1999 Ibiza knowing that there was a new model coming - I wish that I had waited. The car had an air of 'Friday afternoon' about it. Not quite the fit and finish I had read about and was expecting.
Fuel economy was good (around 37mpg) and it went around corners with an Elan that its sister the VW Polo couldn't manage.
More fun to drive than to own.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
