Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
August 2005

Did you get a good deal and why?
i thought i got a cracking deal

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
my VW Golf gearbox gave way and after replacing it still gave problems. so went to a Seat dealership they hardly started the car but looked for cosmetic works and offered me £3500 for it. I happily accepted, as it was valued at less thna £2000! But hey theyre a dealship and can fix anything at no additional cost

What was the dealer like?
great dealer...some of the service department seem miserable and really follow the book but the sales staff were abolutely fantastic.. went head over heels for me.

Have you had any problems with the car?
nothing went wrong until an idiot smashed into the rear of the car and made it a write off. the car was parked! slight prob was the rear passenger floor was wet for some reason before the accident. my local garage thought there was a leak or hole somewhere and when i splashed in water it went in. never got to investigate that because didn't make the appointment coz of the accident.lol

What's most practical about your car?
boot space, seats

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
well had a few glitches at the start but had i year free warranty so went to dealers to change a few things like the cup holder, clutch clip, tightening the hand brake, electrics and cleaning the throttle body.
