Ey up. Been enjoying reading the wealth of information on this board.

Ordered a 1.6 SE Technology in Velvet Red 2 weeks ago....already the delivery date seems like it might be slipping. Gone from the first week in November to 'Maybe the middle of November'.

Been here in France since April, with a road trip to Southern Spain thrown in, where I saw my first Ateca....and fell in love with it! Not even test driven one! Just ordered it!! Nuts or what?

What is the state of delivery times now anyone?

Regards

Ray

That's 12 weeks - think yourself lucky if it turns up that quickly.

Welcome!

It's a great car, fantastic to drive. Diesels aren't so much in demand so your should hopefully come quicker than most - good luck with the waiting! 8-)

My Ateca (1.4 TSI) arrived in 8 weeks despite having been given a delivery estimate of six months. When I picked it up, salesman showed me another that took only 8 weeks. You might be pleasantly surprised.

Where are you based? And have you ordered any additional options or this is just a standard modification?

It’s bound to be a cancelled order, possibly already in production when you ordered it.

The average delivery time in the UK is about 12 weeks on most makes, sometimes a lot more.

As you say, sometimes you can be pleasantly surprised, but it would be unwise to think that SEAT have solved their production problems. That will only happen when people stop buying Atecas!
