Re: Potential new owner

Thanks for your answers, I'm glad about the spare wheel and the next thing to do is a test drive! Good luck with the drive - try and get a long-term/unaccompanied test, not just 30 mins on a pre-arranged route! 8-) As you say you're in Greater London, then depending where you are the new SEAT retai...

Re: Potential new owner

General consensus would be that the 1.0L engine is OK - it does well enough, but nothing spectacular. Given the Ateca is a big car then actually that's a pretty good accomplishment for such a small engine! If you're happy pootling along in slow moving traffic (i.e. London and surrounding clogged mot...

Re: Seat No 7

Welcome to the forums - and good luck with the wait!

I too upgraded from an Ibiza (1.2 TSi Sportrider) - transition was pretty seamless and the ride certainly more comfortable!

Re: Gremlins

There's been a few odd postings here and there - the sad thing is, in my line of work 'user error' is the usual. You could be on to something though; just now another random merging about steering wheel covers on a Kessy thread. Should this have been posted in "Members Area -> Website Issues" by any...

Re: Worried about car theft & Keyless entry system

Sounds like the lock/unlock is tied to the key, not the car, given that's where the motion sensors are. If that's the case then I wonder if a) It's been there for a while and they've only just updated the manuals (wouldn't be the first time) or b) If it's a new capability of the key fobs whether a n...

Re: Waiting for my new Ateca.

Oooooh, that is an evil clause. I'm not sure if that is what is termed a 'fair' clause (I doubt anyone would be willing to take it through the courts to test that assertion). My contract of sale had some evil generic terms in it too - but the dealership never applied them (thankfully... was preparin...

Re: Waiting for my new Ateca.

Welcome to the forums! Yes, unfortunately, nobody has a clue - least of all our politicians! As for taxes etc. - you'll find in most sales contracts the price of the vehicle (before tax) remains the same, but any changes to taxes will usually alter the price (VAT increase for example). We had a simi...

Re: Oil service due warning

Based on your comment, I had a further chat with the dealer after my last post. Slight change of advice from them as they say now that the warranty would be ok as long as I wasn’t more that 1k miles over. Thanks for your advice. And yes, the 10k interval is unusual these days but I’ll only be at 9....

Re: JUST REGISTERED PROSPECTIVE CUPRA ATECA PURCHASE

Ah yes I can see that too now, I just downloaded the latest brochure (Jan 2019) and can see it on there. I don't understand why the pricelist (Dec 2018 V2) doesn't mention it at all though, in fact it says the under seat storage is on the FR Sport when it should really say it isn't because of the m...

Re: Reverse activated kerb view on passenger mirror

Yep, only 3 months after my car was built they had a second revision and added the rear USB ports and phone net. Always tweaking things. Back on topic though and Rob, not an 'option' from the official route, but as Fred says you can enable it with the right tools - and there's a few threads covering...
