I hope SEAT have considered this in their design.
It's not SEAT that designed the gearbox, it was VAG and it's used throughout SEAT, SKODA, VW and AUDI. And given the millions of cars a year they sell...

Re: Seat Ateca battery flat can't open bonnet

Agreed, stupid design but it's been stupid throughout VAG of vehicles for many years.

Simple solution tho, the lever can be bent passed the door. Not ideal but it works.

Re: Build quality

Having had my Ateca since January and now at 1600 miles, I would like to share my thoughts about build quality. Whilst I got a fantastic deal for this car, it is a £29000 car and I expect it to be well put together. So far, I have: - rattles and creaks behind the dashboard in several places, many o...

Re: Front Grille issue

Dunno. The probe looks unfamiliar but the plastic fixing surrounding it looks like that of the outside air temp sensor. And given these are usually located behind the bumper - that's my educated guess. EDIT - I should be a mechanic :lol: Just had a search on google for a Air Temp Sensor and LEON and...

Re: Coming to the end of PCH

Can answer that. Guy has exactly same issue over on Skoda forum. He already has his new lease. VWFS wrote to him and offered two options - end lease as per contract or extend lease by another 6mth. Already having the other car delivered, he took the end lease as normal. VWFS asked him that if possib...

Re: Overdue Service-COVID19

If you had ur car booked in with SEAT and SEAT cancelled it and SEAT made no facilities available within reasonable distance of your home then I'm confused as to why anyone would think they'd be breaking any contract if the car wasn't serviced on time. It's just not going to happen. Brake fluid: How...

Re: Servicing for Leased Ateca

If the service book, electronic or otherwise, were stamped then I'm afraid you're commiting fraud and invalidates the car warranty. For the warranty to be intact it has to be done by a VAT registered garage, your mate doing a homer doesn't count. If another garage were to update the SEAT system with...

Re: Train-like sound on reverse and slightly braking

If the dealer isn't doing anything tell them 1st of all you're reporting them to SEAT UK as they obviously haven't contacted their technical team. Contact SEAT UK and report the fault. Tell them you are aware it's a known fault, the fault is common throughout VW Group brands and is due to faulty rea...

Re: SE TECH - when did RVC get dropped as a feature

Did SE Tech ever have rear camera as std - thought it was an option? My original order was for an SE Tech but I had to option auto lights and wiper sensor because that wasn't std. I then cancelled next day because Xcellence seemed better value for money as it came with so much more. Could have sworn...

Re: What does “[EZ]” mean?

How much sales crap is that eh? Cite millennials for the change. 1: So the millennials have abandoned Audi, Vw and Skoda in favour of SEAT? 2: Free solid, metallic or special paint? Let's re-phrase that. As was the case of previous models, where solid paint was built in to the price of the car, toda...
