I had one of these as my first car. It was an utter dog. It redefined awful! A Lada on 100k miles that smelled of pee would have been better

  • Haha, I had a Panda as my thirdish car, it was ultimately crap but incredibly easy to work on. Rust was a problem but I believe Seat galvanised the Marbella. I'd have another for shits and giggles, but would aim for a 4x4!

    • Don’t know if they did a Marbella 4x4! I thought this car was a dog, but it was cheap and broadly speaking ‘worked’ at least most of the time! 😜

    • No, I think I meant that I'd have another Panda 😉

    • Really? I honestly thought this was an awful car. I'm not actually certain the design should have passed safety standards. Have you read the detailed review I wrote of it?...

    • I'll give it a read now. It might be awful technically, but I have an affinity with shite cars.
