What should I look for in a used Seat Ibiza hatchback?
According to Warranty Direct, this generation of Ibiza has a lower than average reliability, and comes in behind rivals such as the Ford Fiesta and Skoda Fabia, although it's on a par with the Vauxhall Corsa.
The suspension is the biggest issue, with the front suspension is worst affected. Be wary of clonking noises and sloppy handling.
