Hi there:

In general, the SEAT Ibiza is a fairly reliable vehicle. Although we don't see a lot of them here in the United States, some of my overseas Spanish friends tell me that they are pretty efficient, however, it has been mentioned that their gearbox can be problematic. If you're overseas, ask the owner for service records or ask if the vehicle is protected under a warranty before you purchase the vehicle.
