SEAT FAQs

Are SEAT cars reliable?

As part of the Volkswagen Group, SEAT cars meet a high standard of reliability in terms of build, engines and technology. Many SEAT vehicles don’t employ the complex high tech features that luxury brands do as early on, meaning that by the time SEATs adopt this technology, teething problems have been ironed out. This means owners experience few issues with them.

Are SEAT parts and repairs expensive?

Although SEAT cars are built to a high standard, they aren’t expensive to repair and parts are comparatively cheap. This is because they are not considered premium cars. Of course, choosing a Sport model or trim level will increase the price of parts and repairs, but SEAT models are generally an affordable option when it comes to maintenance.

Are SEAT cars cheap to insure?

The cost of insuring your SEAT depends on several factors, including the model you choose and whether you are adding any modifications. The price of the car itself provides an indication of the cost of insurance, but external factors will affect the premium too, such as your age and driving history. For more information on what each of our SEAT models costs to insure, contact Snows SEAT today.

Are SEAT cars safe?

SEAT cars are equipped with a host of technologies to ensure adult and child occupants are kept safe, as well as pedestrians. Recently the SEAT Arona, Ibiza and Ateca have all received a maximum 5-star rating from the independent safety body, Euro NCAP. This is a recognised and respected authority in automotive safety and security.
