SEAT Arosa 1.7 SDi 3d (2000/V) - Owner Review

very easy to drive and park, everything is close at hand inside and easy to use. I put 10 pound of diesel in the tank and it went to half full, and the needle hasnt moved since.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£1,200

When did you buy the car?
March 2007

Did you get a good deal and why?
yes, i got a very very good deal, well i got the car for 1200 which is an absolute bargain. The car is immaculate with full service history, body of the car is amazing and interior isnt to my taste but is in great condition. i got alloy wheels with firestone tyres on it, and colour coded mirrors and bumpers etc.. and with it being the diesel version, i think 1200 is an absoulte bargain. And everything works as it should. It is alot more roomy inside than it looks from the outside.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
it looks good, i had read good reviews about the car, its cheap to run and very nippy with the 1.7 sdi. And its ideal as my first car.

What was the dealer like?
the dealer was great, he was quite young himself, maybe about 28 so he knew what it was like buying a first car, so he gave me 300 pound of the price. a gentleman.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
not many gadgets in the car to be honest, but the red lit dash is damn fine, and the rear lights and brake light on top of rear windscreen on the back are very nice. and the alloys too
