Re: Main dealer service charge

Heard back from Hartwell and they confirmed they don't have capacity to take the work on plus they don't think the sticking handle or rattling window would be covered under warranty on a 3 month old car. Really? Surely it's a manufacturing issue and should be covered but maybe my expectations of Se...

Sorry, meant to add there's a section on this in the owners manual (in the online version it starts page 203)

Re: Start stop and handbrake with DSG

There is an auto hold so don’t need to use handbrake and can take foot off footbrake (which of course stops brake lights dazzling person behind). Not sure about the Arona, but on SWMBO's Leon ST when using autohold, the brake lights surprisingly remain illuminated. Which prompted me to check my Mer...

Re: LED interior lights in the roof and boot

It's common with LEDs; they take a tiny amount of current to light them, therefore when you switch them off, residual current in the circuit will keep them alive for a while. If you've got a laptop with a plug in power supply with a LED on it, watch what happens with that when you disconnect it.

Re: Heated Screens

Rear is standard, front is not even an option, in fact I don't think any SEAT has a heated front windscreen - never seen one on any VAG car either??? I think some of the Skoda range have a heated front screen as an option - also heated steering wheels and heated front and rear seats. A far cry from...

Re: Hi. My first Seat

Welcome and enjoy your new Arona when it arrives.
Was intrigued by your Octavia's suspension set up: presumably Czech and English?? ;)
Don't you just love predictive text and spell checkers?

Re: Heated Wing Mirrors

To add to the confusion, the December 18 price list which gives the full specification details, shows the SE Tech Lux as having electrically adjustable mirrors ( not folding or heated ) and Winter pack, which is described as heated front seats and washer jets only.

Re: Winter tyres

PCD on Arona is 5x100, on Leon it's 5x112 so the simple answer is no, they will not bolt straight on.
