I bought a second hand Altea from a main dealer in October and have had nothing but problems with it and Seat. When I bought the car it had windscreen wiper issues, a water leak and loads of rattles and wind noises - it had done 5500 miles and was a year old. It's been into the dealer 6 times, a total of 6 weeks off the road. Everytime they try to order a main part the response is: the part is on back order from Spain and no time can be given for it to be repaired. Three times the car has been in for a water leak and every time it has come back (weeks later) the water leak is still there!!! I suggested they check the condensation dump from the air-con and guess what - that is what they say is wrong with it now! Well that will be the reason it lets water in when it rains then!!!!!! The car now has to get a new carpet but guess what - that's on back-order too!!!! The dealer wont take the car back, no other Altea is available and Seat has been rubbish in dealing with any problems, basically not doing anything apart from saying take it to another dealer (about a 100 mile round trip) or that "the contract is with you and the dealer". It's totally a pane in the backside and nothing seems to come of it no matter what I do!!! If I could get rid of this piece of junk I would! I just can't believe there are no parts available for a new car and Seat just don't do anything to sort this out.!!!!
