Re: Recall Notice - Gearbox neutral sensor

Had mine recall done re auto hand brake 2 weeks ago. The first thing to notice is when your totally stoped on level ground you have to rev to just short of 2000rpm to release car. Before it was about 1200rpm. Taken a while to get use too but seems I thinks little safer.

The other option could your local Skoda or VW dealer? As they are all VAG any subsequent warranty work or claims would not be argued over. Only issue might be SEAT dealers tend to be the cheapest of the lot! Eg fixed 2 year service for mine 239 at SEAT with breakdown cover. VW dealer £349 without an...

Re: Steering too light on 1.0L models?

No my steering is no lighter than my previous Leon which also rode on 18 inch wheels, they were lower profile than Ateca’s. I also had a 4x4 tdi Ateca for a week on loan, And you could adjust the steering weight by going into the customise options of the menu under drive mode, to make it a bit heavi...
