Seat's Cruiserweight

AdvantagesCar like performance and handling, value for money.

DisadvantagesSeat Dealer Servicing Quality and Warranty Back-up.

"I bought my Seat Alhambra 110bhp 1.9 TDI S in Nov '99. The deal I got on this car was very good. A great Seat Finance deal of 4.7% APR meant only £1060 interest on £16000 borrowed over 3 years. Coupled with an extra £1100 trade-in allowance for my Mondeo if I bought the actual car in the showroom. It was the exact spec and colour I wanted, although in this situation you must always say that the colour is the one you hate so as to put the salesman ..." Read review

Another wild idea from Mrs D

AdvantagesPowerful, quick and flexible

DisadvantagesA bit of a tank

"...plot… She had decided that the Seat Alhambra SX 1.9 TDI was the one for her, and so we were off on another little route to the (loss of) loot. The Seat retails at around 18 grand, although you can always negotiate a deal if you’re prepared to haggle, and you always should on a new car, because there is always room to move given the mark up and the need for dealers to move the metal. There is a waiting period for delivery, as the cars are normally ..." Read review

Seat Alhambra 2006 1.9TDi Auto Stylance 115bhp

Advantagesdoes the job, no airs and graces.

Disadvantagesneeds a six banger oiler under the hood.

"...failed air con condenser, something Seat now admit was a design flaw, but apart from that the Alhambra was a top performer. when I recently became a Father the wife and I decided to buy an Alhambra, we picked up a Shadow Blue model from a main dealer in Kent, a 2006 model with 55K on it, with a FSH of course, problems manifested themselves during the drive home, it peed down with rain and upon arriving home I noticed the rear light cluster had ..."

Great for families.

AdvantagesFairly high spec on even oldest models

DisadvantagesInterior damages very easily, with children & load.

"We bought our R reg. Seat Alhambra in December 2000. It was a used car with a high mileage bought through the auctions. The high mileage was built up from long distance driving, not city driving, so that helped. The car was in very good condition and worked like a dream. It had been owened by a company befor and so had been well looked after. When expecting our 3rd child, our 1st being only 4 and a half, we deliberated long and hard about which ..." Read review

Owning an Alhambra 1.9TDi 115bhp

Advantagesvery reliable and economical, good driving position and very easy to drive. All in all a very good buy

DisadvantagesThe only real disadvantage we have found has been the firmness of the seats.

"...Alhambra a long hard look. Seat are owned by VW, my car has a 6 speed VW engine, plenty of extras but cost around £7k less at the time of purchase - need I say any more!. ..." Read review

Excellent car let down by dealer failures

AdvantagesSpacious, economical car ideal for a family or use as a samll van with 5 seats removed

DisadvantagesDealer support variable

"Bought the car, originally my company car (new price £23,500) for £12,500 in September 2003. For the first two years it was excellent, reliable, spacious and very flexible with the ability to remove between one and five rear seats. As it was the 1.9Tdi PD SE version it has lots of extras such as a heated windscreen, heated front seats (which also turn round for picnics - not that I've ever used that!), comfortable captain's front seats, good quality ..."

bike carrier, furniture remover, engine collector.

Advantagesreliable, economical, versitile

Disadvantagesnot very kiddy wreck proof, heavy seats.

"We purchased this car in march 2005 for £8000 on and x reg, which was a good bargain, we purchased originally for the extra seating as we had a new member to the family which totalled six and when we had my partners son every other weekend we needed that extra seat. i did not realise then how much of a huge help this car would be, it makes every household and family task so much easier. The rear seats can easily be removed, though they are a little ..." Read review

Seat Alhambra 1.9 TDi 130 bhp

AdvantagesLarge seating capacity

Disadvantagestyre wear

"I bought this car brand new in September 2004, since then I have driven 24000 miles in the car. The car has plenty of space to carry 7 people. The advantage for me is that I can take out all the rear seats and have a large area in the back for putting all my bits and bobs for the local builders yard for all my diy projects. The car runs at about 38 mpg across all different driving conditions. I have serviced the car at the prescribed intervals, the ..." Read review

Fantastic plastic

AdvantagesIt drives like a small car .

DisadvantagesAfter sales service is awful!

"...needs to fold a middle seat down to crawl over to exit the car. He's small (about 10 kg ) but has still managed to crack the seat-back + make the little round screw cover thingies disappear. This last service came + went and I saw no new damage. When I got in to drive I noticed the seat had not just been moved but also tilted by the person who brought it back or so. I reached to turn the round knob and found it was just balancing on the mechanism. ..." Read review
