SEAT Arosa (97-04)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I'm beyond fashion

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
I don't think they can see it over the hedge

Would you buy this car again and why?
Probably not, but that shouldn't be a reflection on how good I think the car is. I really like it and it would be great for a new driver. I'd probably go for something electric when it finally bites the dust in 5-6 years

What are you likely to buy next?
Something electric or super cheap on the fuel

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£3,500

When did you buy the car?
June 2002

Did you get a good deal and why?
Not sure sounded like a reasonable deal, car only had 9,000 on the clock and looked like new. Only really brought it because the Ibiza did not have enough headroom!

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
-

What was the dealer like?
Okay, but not as friendly as I'd of liked

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
A big go-cart, the only thing missing is the theme music to mario kart

Mini like (the old one)

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
When we first got the car the Engine management light came on, the dealer came out and replaced the sensor everything has been fine with it since. Have had 2 times where the engine refused to start, this I think was due to the immobiliser, take the key out and put it back in and the car started

What's most practical about your car?
it gets me to work and I can get upto 400 miles out of the tiny tank

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Steering wheel, although the horn gets used quite a bit too
