    My car

    I have owned this car for eight years from new. It's an excellent family car but 90bhp is underpowered.

    Things that have gone wrong are the accelerator pedal module, which failed at 46,000 miles, and the air-flow sensor at 60,000 miles.

    Other than that, it's just been brake pads every 30,000 miles and tyres.

    The speaker grills in the doors are poorly constructed and all broken.

    Apart from these few faults, the car has been great. If you buy one, go for the 115bhp version!

    My car

    Contrary to the view of Mr Simpson, this car is aweful.

    It's very sluggish and hugely slow.

    It accelerates about as fast as my guinea-pig and traction is aweful.

    Dated, boring, cheap, rubbish

    My car

    This Seat Alhambra is the best car I have ever had. On the motorway, it's an excellent cruser and on the four-lane motorways it is excellent at a speed of 120mph.

    It's an excellent tower for my 1495kg caravan - once my caravan got stuck in some mud and my Alhambra just pulled it out as though it wasn't there - and it's not even four-wheel drive.

    When I was in the Alps (I go to Italy every year in my car), a Vauxhall Zafira got stuck up a hill and smoke was coming out of it, so they asked me for help and my Alhambra pulled it up easly with six passengers. The hill had a 33% gradient.

    I live on a farm so you would think I need a 4x4 to go around the fields and tow my horse trailer, but my Alhambra can do all that, so I don't need to get a Land Rover Discovery.

    This car is such a strong car - my sister has a Land Rover Discovery which got stuck, and I could not believe that the Alhambre pulled it out.

    I'm not geting a new car until this one is dead.

    My car

    Had this car since 2003 now done 90000 miles and absolutely no problems, except front electric window once dropped. Get 40 mpg and its very comfortable to drive, especially over long distances like from bottom of France. Love all of the extras like heated seats, sports suspension and cruise control which others make you pay for. Am selling it now and choosing between another Alhambra or an S Max.
