Ordered

Post by Zill » Fri Apr 26, 2019 1:26 pm

Hi all,

Just ordered yesterday a Cupra Ateca with Comfort & Sound pack in black.

Car is already at UK port so will be getting it in approx 2 weeks time. Had a test drive in one and wow, what a piece of equipment!

Look forward to exchanging opinions and experiences once I get it :D

Going to be a long two weeks.
Picked mine up a week ago. Same spec, but in Rhodium Grey. Loving it so far. Only slight negative is the fairly common complaint of slow pick up approaching junctions /roundabouts. Seems to be in too high a gear a lot of the time.

Oh, and make sure the car actually has the C&S pack when you collect it. It's a long story.....

Think you must have been very lucky - ordered mine with C&S pack and panoramic sunroof in Rhodium Grey on 20th February and the latest delivery date that I have been given is early June so getting on for 4 months. They say that good things are worth waiting for I suppose. :) :) :)

In the first 18 months of the availability of the Ateca the delivery expectations were almost all 6 months or more.
1.4TSI DSG Xcellence delivered 2/3/17 after 6 months wait. Brilliant Silver. 18" machined alloys. Park Assist. 360º cameras. Power boot. All driver assists. Alcantara. SEAT sound.

Well as a latest update from today it does seem that my car will be delayed.

SEAT has currently a recall on 2 items on the Cupra Ateca which means that right now no Cupra's at the ports are being released to dealerships until they are fixed. Also one of those two items is on backorder without an ETA :shock:

Hi Zill,

Sorry to hear about the delay on your Cupra. I collected mine mid March after only a three week wait. Do you know what the recall items are? I have not had any notification about mine so far.

Maybe they did yours before you picked it up, i picked mine up on 1st March, three weeks later got a recall notice, something to do with dust covers on front suspension legs, and a fuel pipe clip, did the job in less than an hour while I waited.
I’ve Had this car for just over two months, and have done 2500 miles now, Iove it, great car 😄

It's exactly those items that Loz mentioned. Front shock absorber dust covers and Support clip for fuel pipes. Seemingly the delay is caused by a bracket that is required to rectify one of those two items is on backorder with no ETA.

If you guys had them fixed in March, it feels like they are only fixing the cars in stock once someone has actually purchased them :x

Hope it's not too long of a wait!

Hi Zill,

New to the forum as similarly to you I have ordered a stock Cupra Ateca - I had previously ordered one back in Feb and still hadn't been given a build date by early May (when it was due to be delivered) so cancelled the order and picked out a 'stock car'. Confirmed the order 11th May and the dealer said handover by 1st June. There was no mention of any recall item delays - how is your situation progressing?
