Re: Cracked windscreen

Your biggest issue will be if your car has a camera mounted for lane keep assist (did you get one of the driver assistance packs?). If you do then the camera etc. will need to be recalibrated with specialist equipment - only a few places have that. If it's "just" the sensor for the automatic wipers ...

Switching ignition off then on makes no difference. Sometimes SatNav gets stuck on loading map dat...

Huh... does that work 'normally' (when your unit hasn't crashed)?

Re: WLTP - Lead Times and other impacts

Engine production runs and quotas are controlled by VW Group centrally - it's the main reason the initial wait times were so high originally when the Ateca launched as the 1.4 TSi saw more orders than expected. So if that really is the case (and I stress if ) then I would expect to see the same issu...

Re: Infotainment Crash

Hold the power button down for 10seconds...? That forces an entertainment system reset.

Re: Call from the garage

Hold on a minute here - like for like replacement excluding extras? That's not how things work - a lot of insurance companies try it on, but the simple fact is: 1. YOU are the injured party (as in your property, or the leaseholder's collectively) have suffered a material loss. 2. The other party and...

Re: Hello from Spain (Elche)

Great choice and welcome to the forums! The Ateca is a great car and will seem light years ahead in terms of technology from 2007!

Re: Top view camera or adaptive cruise control?

Unfortunate - it's because your car is due to be built in a couple of weeks :(

Normally they lock down the spec around 3 or 4 weeks before expected production date so you were just a little too late :(

Re: Hi from Ireland

Welcome! :)

We've got another one or two Irish members - specs vary slightly from the UK, but impressive spec!

Good luck with the waiting game, hopefully it won't be too long!

Re: Call from the garage

I know EXACTLY how you feel - same thing happened to me. 4 weeks in my case, I'd spent the day washing and polishing the car and on my way home I got rear-ended. Thankfully mine was only minor and the car driveable, but I feel so sorry for you and know how frustrated you must be! On the plus side if...
