SEAT Arosa 1.7 SDi 3d (1998/S) - Owner Review

Good car to drive. Feels bigger than it actually is. Tends to roll quite a bit through corners. Quiet for a diesel.

SEAT Arosa (97-04)

Value

5 out of 5

Great value for money. Even pushing the engine hard still gives me about 57mpg.

Costs

5 out of 5

Very cheap to run. Only needs a service every 10k miles.

Good car to drive. Feels bigger than it actually is. Tends to roll quite a bit through corners. Quiet for a diesel.

Performance

Nippy at the lights then more leisurely. No turbo!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Overall very good. Only a couple of fuses have blown (probably my fault) and the aerial stopped working.

Unpretentious. Easy on the eye.

Comfort

Good size seats in the front and the rear ones are quite comfy as well. Only seats 4.

Service

1 out of 5

As with other manufacturers, they only want to get your money. SEAT in Liverpool couldn't even fix an incorrectly wired stereo (fitted by SEAT Manchester!). Did a real bodge job. I do not recommend them.
