1.5 engine software updates

Post by Pennine bantam » Fri May 17, 2019 7:06 pm

Just wondering if there are any ateca owners who have the 1.5 evo 1st gear engine problems that have been contacted by their dealers or seat regarding the software updates
I notice on the skoda & volkswagen forums that the updates have started to be installed with some success it seems.
I am one of the unfortunates that has seen my 2019 excellence model affected, and am currently in a hire car courtesy seat uk while i await the fix

Nothing yet. Seems like organised chaos, the Skoda one was pulled, then not, then pulled. Suspect the update will be out June but thats anyone's guess.

A friend contacted a hot shot sales guy in Seats central sales team in Barcelona, and was told the best way would be to register your problem/complaint here:

I have done so in English just now, lets see what happens

So I rang my Seat case manager today and some good news actually came out. They are testing the patch in a few select dealers and should be able to book cars in some point next week. He advised he would call me next week to arrange.
