SEAT Arosa 1.4 MPi 3d (1999/T) - Owner Review

This is a nice little car. They felt a lot more solid and well built than the Ka or 106, but handling-wise a little lacking. Put on 195/45/15 alloys tyres, though, and it transforms to better handler than the Ka.

This thing is VW build quality for Ford prices.

Costs

I'll say again, a VW for Ford money.

Performance

3 out of 5

Nice and buzzy up to 50, then alright, starts to howl like it does not want to go above 90mph. Put on a K&N 57i and it packs a LOT more punch.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Bulletproof. They are built by VW in Wolfsburg, not in Spain.

Ka looks cute, these look tame. Put alloys on - 195/45/15.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Not the best, but full size men can fit very easly. Seat creak a little under 14 stone+.

Key chip immobiliser, that's it.

Service

Local seat dealer takes ages to get back to you when the car requires parts. Go to a local patern part dealer instead.
