Overall reliability

Very reliable and cheap to run.

I bought the car (1.0 mpi with comfort pack) with 30,500 miles on the clock in December 2001, and at the time of writing (June 2010) it has now completed 68,300 miles. I've had the car for nearly 9 years and have been more than happy with it. In my opinion the only fault it has is the door mirrors. The internal adjustment lever doesn't work all the time.

During the period I've had the car, apart from the usual things that need replacing, like tyres (4), windscreen wipers, etc, I've only had to replace a couple of headlight bulbs, a catalytic convertor, a rear shock absorber and a driver's door lock. In town driving gives me up to 45 mpg, which for a small car is ok. It accelerates well and gets up to 70 mph quick enough for me and cruises at 60 - 65 mph without any strain on the engine.

It's a very reliable car but it's a pity that SEAT stopped manaufacuring them.
