OBD2 diagnostics were federally mandated for all cars made/assembled/imported into the USA in 1996. A quick check of the emissions label on top of the radiator should tell you, as well as the shape of the diagnostic port. yes, any OBD2 tool will work.

Hi, Not sure about the 00 model - most OBD2 plugs are close to the central ashtray. However on my 2003 Seat Ibiza the OBD2 plug is on the left side of the car - below the steering wheel on the left is a tiny glove compartment. Remove that compartment and behind it you'll find the plug. Took me 30 minutes to find! Blaise

That plug can be found if you feel in the middle of the dashboard above the A/C controls for a clip that unclips the whole middle center of the dash and under there you can find all the fuses and the OBD2 plug
