Is the SEAT Altea a reliable car?
The Altea isn’t as solidly built as some Seats, with a number of faults reported. The main reliability issue with the petrols is the plastic timing belt tensioner – with both the 1.4 and 1.6-litre models at risk. If it fails, the engine could sustain serious damage, so consider having it replaced.
