you Yesterday we informed of the situation that is living SEAT with your Ateca and today we want to give a little more clarity about this matter. Start several means of communication echoed through the social networks of several customers dissatisfied, of the problems that I was having the Spanish brand to meet the orders of the version 2.0 TDi 150 hp and front wheel drive. We then learned that the brand had suspended temporarily the production of this version.
in this situation, and without confirmation or denial the official part of the mark of what really happens, opening an endless speculation. Here we aim to two possible situations. The first is an excess of demand is not computed and the second a problem of approvals in the engine. The brand has not yet confirmed neither one thing nor the other, but there is already information about a miscalculation at the time of registering the particulate pollutants of this engine and version.
single information official by the brand to try to solve this problem is limited to these words: “to all those customers who have to date made an order of a Ateca 2.0 TDI 150 HP with front-wheel drive, they will propose a alternative of equal or better conditions”. The compensation that the brand proposes to the customers can put two forms.
- To those who have purchased a Ateca 2.0 TDi 150 cv 4×2 brand offers them the same version 4×4. The cost 2.760 euros that exist between one version and another will be assumed by the brand.
- who choose the affected version, but with automatic change – DSG will be able to access the Ateca 2.or TDi 190 hp 4Drive DSG. As in the first case, 6,500 euros of difference between the two engines and versions will also be borne by the brand.
we will Wait to have more information to provide you with more details of the situation that lives the brand and how it will solve.
