Hi Cyberbob,

That's just crazy! Giving people 'Front Assist' and other expensive safety features, but save money on brakes...in my book good brakes are really quite essential. Anyway, I'm just happy that I don't have to worry about it

Hi BlueBoy68,

That is incredible milage around town! Glad you're loving it, can't wait to have a drive in mine :-)
I read some complaints about the hand brake not working properly, not holding a car on the slope. Have you found this as well?
Seems to be an issue with drum brake equipped cars SE Lux is disk rear, so no similar issues - had none on mine :D
Are you sure this is from the SE tech Lux on the Seat Web page

Yep, I have an SE Lux easy to see as mine has rear brake calipers if in doubt spec wise, I always check out real cars on autotrader - not like the SEAT website to be wrong :lol:

Car is at the dealership for pre-delivery checks! Hopefully we're able to pick it up soon :-)

Picked up my wifes FR Sport 1.6 TDI in red with black roof. It's awesome, already getting nearly 60 mpg after 500 miles. Drives lovely, only snag was the Engine Management light came on due to a faulty connector on glow plug number 1 wiring on the engine management system.

Hi R1ch4rdK,

Glad you're enjoying the car. That warning light would freak me out on a new car. Glad it wasn't anything major. Fuel consumption sounds good. What are you getting around town?

Finally our new car has arrived! Haven't had much chance to drive it. So far, impressed with the handing off the car. The engine feels like it's needs some time to loosen up, it's pretty decent already.

The gadgets all seem to work and the sat nav didn't send me on a weird and wonderful route as I was dreading after reading the comments here.

Looking forward to seeing the other Aronas around.

Sorry to hear that Mickyg2004. Which model did you order? The waiting times quoted by dealerships and lease companies are indicative... I rang Seat with my order number and got my updates that way
