May 2005

Did you get a good deal and why?
This is my second review 18 months on. It arrived on site while I was getting out of my old car, should have got abit more of the price. It was a hire car for it's first 18 months with a few scratches on the door which I did not notice until I found an old checklist from the hire firm showing where they were.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I had a Seat Ibiza with the same engine.

What was the dealer like?
Ok, I was the first client for the salesman so he was a bit slow at sorting out the paper work etc etc.
