Arona Engine Bay

Post by kobe » Sun Aug 02, 2020 2:11 pm

Is it only on the Arona that Seat do not paint the engine bay in the vehicle colour, the under side of the bonnet is in vehicle colour. All you can see is where the robot has spread the sealer on top of the primer or zinc bath coat. no main body paint!! :o

Strange, I’m pretty sure mine is painted the body colour on the underside of the bonnet and inside the engine bay.

Mine is painted the same colour as the body panels but has not been finished with the clearcoat laquer which gives the shine to the paint,same in the boot,most cars are the same not just Seat,had a VW polo, Honda Jazz,Mazda 2, all not finished in clearcoat in those areas, cost saving I suppose

Thanks tommo. Never had a new vehicle before that was not painted in the engine bay, also on closer inspection under the bonnet it is more primer than grey paint. I have put an official complaint in, see what happens

Maybe not so obvious that it is painted in body colour when the body is grey. The engine bay is certainly all red in mine although as others say above it's a dull red and in many places covered in the wax anti-corrosion coating. You could ask your dealer for a peek under other Arona bonnets for comparison.
