Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Seat Alhambra MPV?

The Alhambra is sound and robust, but there are a few areas that demand special attention. The air-con is a known weak spot, for a start, so test it properly before you buy, because fixing it could land you with a four-figure bill.

Among the other things to look for are: on some cars, the wipers won't switch off or can seize; the immobiliser can fail and lock you out; and, electric windows that drop into the door and won't come back out. Owners also report other sporadic electrical-related gremlins, so ensure everything works as it should.
