With the Trust Building Measure, SEAT is informing its customers that it would consider any complaints that are established to have arisen as a result of the implementation of the technical measure on vehicles with EA189 type diesel engines and that relate to certain parts of the engine and exhaust treatment system.
The Trust Building Measure covers a total of 11 components within the exhaust gas recirculation system, the fuel injection system and the emissions after treatment system: lambda probe, temperature sensor, EGR changeover valve, EGR valve, EGR pressure differential sensor, injector, high pressure pump, fuel rail, pressure control valve, pressure sensor, high pressure pipelines.
The Trust Building Measure applies for a period of 24 months from when the vehicle receives the technical measure and only to vehicles with mileage of under 250,000 kilometers at the time the Trust Building Measure is implemented (whichever comes earlier).
It also extends to all customers whose eligible vehicles have already been updated.
The Trust Building Measure has no bearing on SEAT position that the technical measures do not have any negative effects on the durability of the engine and the after treatment system. The regulators have confirmed that the technical measures meet all legal requirements and have no adverse impact on fuel consumption figures, CO2 emissions figures, engine output, maximum torque and noise emissions. With the Trust Building Measure, SEAT is sending a clear signal that the update has no negative effects on vehicle durability. This measure should serve to strengthen customer confidence in the technical measure and should encourage more customers to have their cars updated.
Detailed information is available about the terms and conditions of the Trust Building Measure from all authorized dealers and workshops for their respective vehicle brand, as well as online.
Of course all customers can also contact the responsible customer service contact by letter, e-mail or telephone.
