Re: Problems in SEAT Ateca

So far so good...

Just over 2 years and nothing at all to report by way of faults. Tyre wear less than I would have hoped - 14,000 miles for the front Falkens (used to get 25,000 on the Leon). Switched now to Michelins.

Touch wood - happy bunny!

Tyre pressure - standard or comfort?

Hi All, According to the tyre pressure setting (indicated by the passenger door pillar sticker) I have 2 x options in my front wheel drive Ateca - the standard and the lower pressure "Comfort" alternative. There are clearly going to be pros and cons - I assume that "Comfort" will feel slightly softe...

Re: Keyless Entry

Cheap and cheerful solution - a Faraday bag.
Less than £5 from any number of online sellers. All sorts of different sizes available. I have now at home and one at work. Just stuff the key in the bag as soon as I get there.

Signal blocked - job done.

Update - new battery.
The good news is that nothing needs to be reset when you've bunged the new battery in.

It just works as before. Relief!

Re: What do you do when the key battery goes flat? - Here's what to do...

Hi Paul - the car is just under 2 years old. A replacement battery is due to arrive shortly.
I'm hoping that when I replace the battery in the key, everything will just work.

Either way, I'll post what happens here. Cheers.

What do you do when the key battery goes flat? - Here's what to do...

Out and about nice and early this morning - but the car wouldn't open. The key battery was flat (KESSY). Quite straightforward in this case: I was at home, so just grabbed the spare key and ordered a replacement battery for the main one (it's a type 2025 by the way - cheap as chips). But it made me ...

Re: 1.4 EcoTSI Manual Gearbox

Love the gearbox - light and smooth. Prefer a bit more between 5th and 6th though: there's not much difference and fuel economy at around 70mph might be better as a result?
I often shift from 4th straight to 6th.
Just a thought...

Re: Great 1.4 MPG

I've got a couple of motorways and roads near me with the dreaded 50mph average speed cameras.
A real pain, but the fuel consumption is markedly better at that speed - 55mpg or so.

Can't have your cake and eat it I suppose!

Re: Closing boot

Same here - boot needs actual downward pressure at the moment of impact or it won't shut. Doesn't need much - just a couple of fingers helping it on it's way does the trick. Or slamming it shut works as well... Dealership had a quick look at it, but it didn't make any difference. It seems to be an a...
