I looked at buying a black Seat Ibiza with number plate GN10KJZ. I did a HPI check and it came up clear. However, while looking through the car manual, I found a memo from ASM Autos which are salvage and breakers yard.
I then looked under at the engine compartment and found that substantial repair work had been carried out – including the removal of all the engine bolts, a new enginer, side wings and a respray. This information was not explained to me by the used car sales man and the cars history has been ‘forgotten’.
If you reading this page because you are checking up on this car – can I recommend that examine it very carefully (preferably with a mechanic present) – before committing to purchase this vehicle.
