Report 7 Seat Ateca £27,425/£30,700
Of late, I’ve had a great deal of motorway miles to cover, and as a result, I’ve realised something momentous about the Ateca. Prepare yourselves for a bit of a shock...
The reason I get through a lot of screenwash is because I drive with my headlights on dipped beam all the time... and when you have dipped beams on, the car always washes the headlights as well as the screen. Meaning you get through the soapy stuf about twice as fast as if you drive with daytime driving lights or sidelights on.
This hangover from my motorcycling days (be safe, be seen) means that I am reflling the Seat’s washer bottle with alarming frequency. Not that I’m going to change my “lights on all the time” policy, it’s just good to have realised it’s what’s causing the Ateca’s thirst for screenwash.
