They will only contact you when they want the money for fixing it. :lol:

Let the fun commence. Poor show from the dealer here really.

they turned up tuesday at 8:30 am and it was taken away on the back of a low loader. I don;t want the car back, still no contact from them.
Its a shame this has happened, I've not heard of wheel bearings going on the Ibiza to be honest not on a MK4.

I think you were just very unlucky AND your dealers are a bunch of monkeys.

And the car is a pup, the previous owner modded it, in hindsight i should'nt have bought it, its not as if i paid cheap money for it, so let the battle commence. Best bit is i am super fired up today due to another complaint i am dealing with for work. so....Player one to serve.:D

mate glad your ok that sounds bad and as you say brown trousers, just thankful it wasn't worse.

if any consilation one of mine broke on me as well this morning, thankfully i wasnt going that quickly still they should never break not on these cars :ban:

I'm like you, have a friday car, I'm going for the balls of SEAT UK, as high as possible. I know there's a website out there with all the cheifs address's, emails and so on, also consider if you don't get what you want from the dealer go to what car, they have a helpdesk section on [email protected], i shouldnt think they'll want there name dragged through the mud.

ok update.

Today after me starting my complaining, the dealer has agread to take the car back, i agread a small difference in the price as obviously i have done 5k in it since buying it, but i am going into drop the documents off and pick up my cheque and oibviously the bits in the car.

The delaer is saying it was the new CV joint they fitted to the car in october but they have also changed the Wheel bearing too as a precaution.

Not sure what i am going to be doing for a car now, i kind of want another one and am half tempted to go buy a cheap 5k example and pocket the rest of the cash. Or i may buy a cheap Tdi sport till i decided what to do.. Megane RS 175 diesel has crossed my mind too or an audi a3. and Astra 888 diesel.

But i would like to say the dealer has been very good in the end in reaching this agreament helped i would suspect by SEAT customer support getting involved too.

cheers guys for the input, oh and check out the for sale section as i have brand new with stickers on set of toyo t1r's i wonl;t need now, there still sitting here in my office....lol

I hope you don't leave the fold to be honest fella.
Don't be put off by this bad dealer and bad example.

Ibiza have their niggles but their good cars, Honest guv'na
Although if I had a change I'd purchase a 2.0TFSI Sport/FR Leon

well update again, car is gone, got my money back . and looks like i am buying an EP3 Civic Type-R for 5k to hoon around in this year, yeah i know huge loss of torque over the cupra tdi and also less MPG, but truth is have'nt been using car half as much this year as i thoight i would, plus i honeslty think the cupra tdi made me a worse driver as i rode the torque everywhere and bullyed other road users in the tdi.

best bit is once i have sold my spares i have a spare 5k in the bank, which is probaby sensible, My first jap car

It's far easier to speed in a Tdi than in a VTEC - probably to do with the relaxed nature of the Tdi engine, speed in a VTEC = lots of RPM. I think i'm a better driver in this than i was in the Leon.

Enjoy the change Ant :)

+1 for this!! going from a vvtl-i to a tdi is a massive difference in driving style, i had to really learn to not rev all the way round :blink: good luck with the new car, they are great!

They paid for the car, that's all?
No compensation? :O
Should have been so easy to milk them for more.

Sorry to hear of your loss and this incident, glad you're okay like everyone else.
