Noisy steering

My 1.5 FR makes a significant noise when at full lock or close to full lock.

It's not the typical power steering high pitch 'whir' but rather a lower pitched 'swoosh' almost like a rubbing noise.

Do others have this or is their steering silent?

Re: Problems in SEAT Ateca

I've had my Ateca 3 weeks now. In general, I'm really happy with the car but I do have a fair few 'niggles': 1. The 1.5 engine peculiarities at low speed. The slight jumpiness in 1st gear and flat spot in 2nd 2. I find the 1.5 engine quite noisy under revs 3. My steering makes a fairly loud 'whooshi...

FR Progressive Steering

For those who have it, what are your thoughts on progressive steering.

Aside from feeling slightly 'heavier' I don't feel much difference. To the extent that I'm not sure it is fully functioning.

I was expecting more reactive (less turn of the wheel) at lower speed but don't seem to experience this.

Re: 1.5 Manual at low speeds

I've had my car a week and this 'issue' with 1st and 2nd gear is exactly what I have been experienced. It just doesn't seem right to me, especially with some jerkiness in 1st at times. It also makes poses a challenge at times. I circle up 9 car park floors at work and 1st or 2nd gear don't seem to c...

Re: Is FR lowered?

I was choosing between an xcellence and FR and ride comfort was important to me.

After test driving an xcellence, the dealer assured me there was no difference between that and the FR, including the suspension being no firmer.

On this basis I ordered an FR. I sure hope he was right.

Re: qashqai vs ateca prices

The residuals on the Ateca at the moment seem amazing. I assume due to supply outstripping demand and there being a lack of 2nd hand cars on the market. A 1.5 year old ateca 1.4 execellence with average mileage tens to go for over 21k. Some people must be breaking even on what it cost them to buy ne...

qashqai vs ateca prices

Hi all, I've been looking at buying an Ateca in with Excellence or FR guise. I have test driven the Excellence and thought it was a great ride. Looking at other options, I have considered the Qashqai but didn't enjoy the ride as much and generally was preferring the Ateca. This was also based on the...
