Re: WLTP - Lead Times and other impacts

Picking mine up tomorrow morning, have had a nightmare trying to convince an insurer to cover the 1.5 SE tech as it's still not on any databases. The FR and excellence 1.5 models do now appear apparently though which is good for anyone with those. I followed a previous poster and called LV who have insured it as a 1.4 and will update it to a 1.5 in a couple of weeks. It's cost me almost £100 more to insure though as the companies with cheaper quotes refused to insure it... RAC, Halifax, Swinton.

My insurer ( Swiftcover) undertook to cover the car as a 1.4 FR and to manually change the policy when the information becomes available. Also, it was £10 a year less to cover than my diesel Hyundai i30 Premium
Ordered Ateca FR 1.5 TSI, Energy Blue, manual, convenience pack, heated windscreen, spare wheel on 19/04/2018. Delivery due Week42 (Mid-October) Picked up week 43

I think I am (and therefore hope my car is) in the same boat. I know it was built in W36 but little solid news since except for that it has left the factory! What did the do to our Xcellence s for two months!?

I've heard from a Dutch dealer that a huge batch of Ateca's has been shipped to dealers in Europe. So expect a lot of people getting a call for a pickup date.

My wife took a call today from Cox's SEAT in Blackpool confirming our new delivery date of less than 2 weeks. During the call they said our original delivery car isn't even in build yet and would be early JAN 2019 at best. But they have managed to source the exact same car from another dealer who has just taken delivery of an unwanted order. Can't say fairer than that. Pretty excited now!

Ordered: 28th July 2018

Hi everyone, if you look back I cancelled my order for my 2.0tdi 190 xcellence, black magic, 19" alloys and sunroof. Ordered May, estimated delivery Sept, latest was not this year. Anyway My dealer contacted me after a few words on a review site. They offered a courtesy car until my new car was delivered.. Unfortunately between Lookers and Seat they did not sort it out quick enough so I have still walked away and now buying an f-pace.. I thought it might help some of you patient customers who might be left without a car. The dealer said Seat uk should have offered it.
