Washed ours today (after being unable to for weeks due to cold temps). No significant build up of dirt in the offending area, despite all the muck on the roads this time of year - my normal, thorough cleaning regime will be sufficient, as with other cars I've owned, as I suspected.

Move along, nothing to see here :)

Newly built atecas are said to have extra rubber seals at rear doors (modified seals). Anyone with these modified seals can post photos???

I took delivery of a Xcellance 1.4 EcoTsi 4 days ago and have discovered a fault in the design which will unfortunately lead to premature corrosion. Even though the vehicle is spotlessly clean on the outside, on opening the rear doors I noticed that dirt, grit & mud is collecting near the bottom on the inside of the doors. See photos. The channel where debris collects is formed by the way in which the lower black plastic door trim is attached to the door panel. On the majority of vehicles, the rear door is seperated from the wheel arch and therefore this problem does not exist. However, on the Ateca, the lower part of the rear doors are directly exposed to spray from the rear wheels & tyres. It appears that this problem affects all models.

Having been involved in the motor industry for many years, I would advise the following:-
Please check your vehicle and if any dirt is collecting in this area then please help us all by writing (with photos if possible) to your dealer. Ask them to contact the manufacturer regarding this issue. Also write to Seat (which can be done at www.seat.co.uk/contact-us.html) . The more of us who do this, the sooner a fix will be available. In the meantime I would advise that owners take the time to keep this area clean until Seat comes up with the required fix.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
Thanks I have checked mine and you are right I will get on to SEAT as I am not happy with my car Ateca SE Technology full stop rattles like hell inside

Hi all. I am due to collect my car in 4 weeks. Noticing this subject - I have emailed Seat asking for confirmation that this fault has be rectified.

If you are all still out there - can you confirm if this is still an outstanding fault.?

Unfortunately, I have to revive this topic, as my Ateca build in Jan 2018 does still show signs of this problem as you can see:
