      I just saw a new Ibiza in Pittsburgh, PA - I'd not heard anything about them being sold in the States - anyone know different? Is it likely that someone would spend the time and money to bring one here?

      apparently they are available south of the border so maybe someone drove one up?

      They are not available for sale in the U.S. He probably saw a car that belonged to a diplomat or a foreign national on a working visa, residing temporarily in the U.S.

      I have a very good friend that just moved back to the states. She owns a seat ibiza. She couldn't bring it there. U can bring it temporarly(1year) but u have to pay double the value of the car. She left the car in Italy at her brother's place. She did some further reasearch and: in order to have the car there, the car needs to pass some crash test to be registered there...lol; further more the display needs to be in miles /hour and a lot of small things. Once she got there she found out that Seat is going to be present on the US Market starting with next year. For now she decided to buy a beetle and she's on the waiting list.

      Never heard of such thing. I have personal friends who have brought their own cars, from Europe, without having to pay any such charges other than the shipping costs. Depending on your VISA, a car can be here for up to 2 years.

      You should see some of the cars that come to our store for service (www.stillmanvolvo.com); most of them are still with their metric instrument panels and I have also seen non-Volvos that "did not have to pass" crash testing. How are they going to be tested, by the Gov't, if such car is not sold here?
      Unfortunately, you and your friend are the recipients of really bad info.
      As far as SEAT coming to the U.S. within the next year or so, you can take this to the bank; they are not coming! VW have enough cars on the market here, netween VW, Audi and Porsche.

      Yanni,
      The Volvo with the metric instruments are probably Canadian cars, identical to the US cars other than the metric thing.
      In any case, Volvo was (and maybe still is) selling their cars in Europe with the American bumpers and therefore the European cars were identical to US spec cars.

      No, these were cars from Germany, the Netherlands and (in one case) from Italy. We have also had RHD cars from the U.K. and Cyprus.

      True but we have also seen non-Volvos from Europe. Strictly European cars.

      The SEAT Ibiza is a super mini car manufactured by the Spanish automaker SEAT. It is SEAT's best-selling car and perhaps the most popular model in the company's range

      I saw what looked like a Toyota Yaris in Northeast PA yesterday. It was on the Casey Highway, RT.6 in Scranton. I took a second look, it had Vermont plates.

All fo them werre the top seller model in seat's rang. a rebadged redeveloped version of the first generation ibiza remains still in production under license in china.
