The Seat Ibiza was one of the most popular cars in its class at its time of release, and it’s still gaining new fans after more than 30 years on the market. However, if you have your own Seat Ibiza, you may have experienced some problems with the car that aren’t typical in other models of this brand or other brands in general. Check out the list below to see what issues you should be aware of so you can address them promptly if they happen to your model.

Suspension Noise:

There is a grinding noise when you go over bumps in your Seat Ibiza, which usually comes from a worn suspension strut. The suspension struts are used to lower and raise your vehicle’s ride height for road or track driving. They should be lubricated periodically and replaced if they appear to be making excessive noise or if there is any sign of damage or leaking.

If you have an older car, it may be worth checking these out as well as other moving parts. It may save you money down the line by avoiding more expensive repairs later on.


Power Steering Issues:

Common problems with power steering are usually related to a problem in one of two places. Either you have worn-out seals or hoses, or you have a leak somewhere in your system. If you find yourself pulling excessively on your steering wheel, it’s time to check into repairs. The same goes for any noises that seem to be coming from your power steering system.

You can also look for leaks by parking under a light at night and checking for wet spots underneath your car. This may sound like an easy fix, but if you don’t know what you’re doing, fixing these issues could get expensive fast. A better option is to take your car to a professional who will diagnose and repair these issues quickly and inexpensively.


Uncomfortable Driving Position:

The driver’s seat has very little lumbar support, and doesn’t adjust like those in other cars. This can make long drives excruciating if you have a bad back. And, at a time when more car companies are putting in power seats to be moved while driving, it’s odd that Seat hasn’t. While many people prefer not to have their seat adjusted while driving, that doesn’t mean everyone wants an uncomfortable ride. If your vehicle is driven by multiple drivers, each of whom prefers different adjustments, having a power seat would save everyone some aggravation.

A lack of adjustability also means that Seat’s upholstery may wear out faster than competitors because users won’t be able to move or change position as often as they otherwise might. As mentioned above, changing positions helps prevent soreness and discomfort from setting in during longer rides.


Uneven Ride:

If you’re driving over particularly rough terrain, chances are your car is going to bottom out and cause you to take a beating. If your car takes severe jolts every time it hits a bump, you may have some suspension issues that need to be resolved before things get worse. When all is said and done, suspension issues can lead to a damaged drivetrain—and that’s not an issue anyone wants on their hands.

Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to determine whether or not your ride needs a checkup. First, listen for odd noises as you hit bumps in the road; if you hear something rattling around under your vehicle, it could mean that one of your shock absorbers has come loose. You should also feel for vibrations in your steering wheel; if they seem especially violent when hitting bumps in a straight line, you might want to consider bringing your car into a shop for inspection. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!


The Seats are Lowered by Default:

When you buy a new Seat, it’s a long way down to get in. In some ways, that’s beneficial: it can be good for your posture and back, after all. But it makes getting in and out harder if you have bad knees or hips, especially since there are no seat cushions on which to brace yourself when you stand up again. You also won’t fit as many people in your car as you might expect; I had three passengers (two adults and one child) sit comfortably, but four was a bit of a squeeze. The solution? Raise those seats! They’re adjustable via a lever under each front seat, so if you want more space, just raise them until they’re comfortable. It takes about two minutes per side.
