Reliability of SEAT

When it comes to reliability SEAT is pretty much in the middle, placing 16th in the 2018 reliability survey conducted by Which?, with their cars earning 4 stars out of 5 due to issues relating to things like air-conditioning and door handles.

SEAT history

SEAT began in Madrid in 1950 when the manufacturer broke ground on their Zona Franca Plant, though their first model, the SEAT 1400, wasn’t produced until 1953 in collaboration with Fiat.

In 1957, SEAT founded the SEAT Training Centre where they trained personnel to work in the car industry.

It wasn’t until 1975 that SEAT independently produced their first vehicle, the SEAT 1200 Sport. Prior to this, all other cars made at their Madrid plant were rebadged or restyled models borrowed from their partner, Fiat.

In 1984 the Spanish manufacturer launched the SEAT Ibiza hatchback Mk 1 in collaboration with Porsche, though the car has now gone through several transformations it is one that is still being made over 30 years later.

SEAT produces many popular models and nearly 3% of cars sold in the UK in 2018 were manufactured by them.
