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.
