Knocking when turning hard right

Post by Cat66 » Mon Nov 25, 2019 10:49 pm

After 4 trips to the dealership it has now been decided that the loud knocking I get when I turn right is not going to be rectified by Seat. It is classed as what can be considered as a non dangerous noise which can be considered normal .
A fact I strongly dispute, loud knocking when turning is not normal.
Especially as this is now listed as a known issue to Seat. Issue is apparently caused by driveshaft and rubber being too close together and rubbing, this is worse when it is cold. Seat have stated that no remedial actions will be taken and if any work on this is carried out it will void the warranty on this part.
This added together with my infotainment system that cannot be fixed until a update is released , an intermittent phon enough connecting/ sat nav slow loading issue , means my lovely brand new car is not so perfect.

Feeling proper fed up now , a car with a loud knocking is not what I wanted, and I feel this will effect resale down the line.
