Seat Servicing in Oldham, Bury Manchester

Seats are now cool – fact! Gone are the days of Seat being a lesser known and disrespected manufacturer, the Volkswagen Group have developed Seat into the sporty section of their portfolio of vehicle brands. Cars like the fantastic Leon FR and the Ibiza Cupra are genuine beneficiaries of Seat’s involvement in global motorsport like the WTCC and BTCC. But Seat isn’t just about speed and thrills – it’s about value for money too, and that’s why Volksmasters range of Seat specific services will help keep your Seat on the road for longer.

Jump straight to Seat service pricing

Although only popular in Europe and Africa, as well as some parts of South America, Seat is one of the biggest manufacturers within the VW Groupation (VAG). The Volkswagen Group bought Seat in 1986, after the Spanish government decided to sell the state-owned company established in 1950.

Seat Car Range

As a sister company to both VW and Audi, Seat’s cars are vaguely similar in quality and feel but are the most ‘youthful’ brand of the three. Whereas Audi is seen as a premium brand and VW sells cars to the masses, Seat’s primary demographic is younger people who want aggressive-looking and affordable vehicles.

Before we delve deeper into specific Seat models and their features, we have to discuss the issue with the ‘Cupra’ moniker. You see, historically, Seat has reserved the Cupra nameplate for its sportiest, most exciting cars, but all of that changed in 2018 when they decided to make ‘Cupra’ an official subsidiary of Seat.

Think of them like Mercedes and BRABUS, or BMW and Alpina. The cars are fundamentally still Seat underneath, but it’s just a way of distinguishing them from the regular lineup and dedicating an entire facility to making sporty Seats.

Seat Mii

Seat makes a lot of cars, from small city runabouts to large MPVs, but we’ll kick things off with their tiniest offering: the Mii. We’ve already mentioned that Seat and VW are siblings, so it shouldn’t come as a surprise to find out that the Mii is actually a VW Up! in disguise. Seat tried to give the Mii a sportier look, but it’s still distinguishable as an Up!.

The Mii is one of the most economical city cars currently on offer, and also one of the most affordable new cars on sale. The only engine on offer is a 1.0-litre three-cylinder, with the naturally-aspirated variant making 60 or 70 horsepower, and the turbocharged motor producing between 90 and 115 horsepower, depending on the trim.

Seat Ibiza

The Ibiza used to be a cheaper alternative to the VW Polo, but nowadays it’s usually the better propositions since it looks meaner and it’s the more interesting-looking of the two when it comes to the cabin. The smallest engine is a naturally-aspirated three-cylinder, just like the one found in the Mii, but the most potent variant comes with a 1.8-litre TSI making 189 bhp in the Ibiza Cupra model.

The latest Ibiza doesn’t get the 1.8 engine, as Seat has replaced it with a 1.5 TSi EVO unit. The Mk5 Ibiza built from 2017 onwards only has a 1.6-litre TDI diesel engine in the lineup, but the previous car was available with the 1.2, the 1.4, the 1.9, and the 2.0-litre TDI engines. Anyone familiar with VW’s TDI engines will tell you they’re bulletproof, apart from the usual MAF failure or DPF issues.

Seat Leon

Seat Car Service

The Leon is arguably one of the best cars in the entire VW Groupation, especially when you take price into consideration. It’s easily better looking than the Golf, and just as exciting as the Audi A3 which it shares its underpinnings with. The fourth-gen Leon was announced at the beginning of 2020, so expect it to hit showrooms soon. The Mk3 Leon was one of Seat’s most popular models, and it remained in production for a full eight years.

Engines were almost identical to those found in the Ibiza, except Seat didn’t bother with the 1.0-litre as it was too small for the Leon, and the range-topping motor was a 2.0-litre TSI producing between 188 and 296 bhp, depending on the trim. There were two diesels on offer: a 1.6 TDI making either 89 or 103 bhp, and a larger 2.0 TDI producing 148 bhp and 181 bhp in the FR variant. Same issues and common faults apply as the Ibiza.

Seat SUVs

Seat’s smallest crossover is the Arona, a close sibling of the new Skoda Kamiq and the VW T-Roc. The mid-size Seat Ateca is, as you probably guessed, related to the Skoda Karoq and the VW Tiguan (as well as the Audi Q3), and the Seat Tarraco has the same underpinnings as the Skoda Kodiaq and the VW Tiguan Allspace.

The Tarraco is the latest car to join Seat’s SUV lineup and is easily the largest vehicle they’ve ever made. As is the case with VW, Seat doesn’t have that many large-capacity engines to put into their larger cars but instead rely on turbocharging to achieve the same effect.

The Tarraco is available with a 1.5 and a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine, as well as the already-familiar 2.0 TDI unit, producing 150 or 190 horsepower. Although it’s front-wheel drive as standard, you can get it with the 4Drive all-wheel-drive system. Seat also makes the Alhambra, a large MPV that’s great for big families.

Common Issues & Faults

Because they’re part of the VW Group, most of the issues related with VW and Skoda apply to Seat as well. The diesels should run forever if you maintain them well, as showcased with plenty of older Seats easily breaking the half a million-mile mark. The DPF can sometimes act up, and EGR valve problems aren’t unheard of.

The cabins typically hold up well, but squeaks and rattles on older cars are to be expected. As with most diesels, even the newest cars aren’t immune to carbon build-up, but that’s not cause for major concern.

Conclusion

If you love practical cars which are genuinely fun to drive and don’t cost a fortune, then a Seat might be right for you. In the olden days, the Seat badge was an issue for a lot of people who paid massive premiums just to say they own a VW. Nowadays, most Seats aren’t that much cheaper than their equivalent VW models, but they’re usually better equipped trim-for-trim and are almost always better looking.

If you’ve got a Seat and you’re in need of repairs you’ll be glad to know we’ve got qualified technicians servicing hundreds of Seats, VW’s and Audis every month, so your car’s in good hands with us don’t hesitate to give us a call or visit us in Oldham (0161 624 5060), Bury (0161 761 3030) or at the Van Centre (0161 628 5270) or complete the booking form, we’ll be more than happy to help.

  • A security code which can be verified by any Audi Centre to provide added reassurance when buying or selling a vehicle
  • Protection against forgery or the records being lost
  • Proof of service work to protect your warranty

Maintaining a full and up-to-date service history which is trustworthy and accurate will help preserve the resale price of your vehicle.

  • Recently took my Q3 to VM Oldham due to a problem with the windscreen washers. Problem quickly identified and resolved and I was able pick up the car within a couple of hours of dropping it off.
    As ever cost was very reasonable and I was given a full explanation of what the problem had been and how it had been rectified.
    Once again great service from my first choice garage.

    I couldn’t ask for a better service than Volksmaster. I’ve been taking my car there for the last 5 years and always felt so looked after. This last couple of weeks they’ve sorted a few issues with my car for me, the time frame and level of service totally exceeds expectations. I would never take my car to another garage. Can’t recommend enough.

Fantastic service, professionalism, great knowledge and honesty from all the staff who work there.

  • 10/10 Honest and professional service. After taking my VW Golf in for cambelt change, the price they quoted was much more reasonable than main dealer prices. I also enquired about gearbox oil change which is recommend with my car age/mileage, after a brief check on their computer, they advised me this would not be necessary as it has a lifetime oil in a sealed gearbox. I appreciated their honesty as I'm sure lesser garage might not be so trustworthy. After collecting my car, I noticed my car was a little different, they had washed my car and valet my interior. After this long, difficult period of co-vid, this garage has certainly put a big smile on my face after the service I've received, I thank them once again and highly recommend this company.

    Great to see the VW experts to work on my Winnebago Rialta which is half VW half Winnebago. First visit source a cambelt from overseas as it was very rare. Today they carried out a full service, MOT, and fitted the broken seat belt. ( Which was a bit of a job). And to top it all cleaned up months of lockdown storage moss. Thank you to the great team.

    Amazing customer service, couldn't do enough for me, very friendly and eager to help. Car went in for major service and MOT at 8am and by 2pm had a phone call to say was ready to collect. The car did need work doing which they did within this time frame! Speedy turn around. Marie and Danny contacted me to explain the faults found thoroughly and nothing was too much of a bother for them; so so helpful! Thank you so much to you both! Could not fault you or this garage at all. Highly highly recommend.

  • Very professional. Main dealer knowledge and customer care but way way cheaper. Second time we've used them for our cars. For Vw/Audi/Skoda etc they know anything that can go wrong and the cost effective way to fix it. Very useful to have them on board. This time it was our Audi S3 which is back to as-new condition. Thank you to the team. Highly recommended.

    Found Volksmaster on the internet for an independent inspection of a secondhand vehicle before purchase. Contacted by email, very prompt reply. Mike and his team organised delivery for the vehicle from the garage selling the vehicle - a Passat Alltrack. Gave the vehicle a thorough inspection and provided a detailed report back to me on the issues to take up with the garage selling the vehicle. Brilliant service, that helps ensure the vehicle is in top condition and issues resolved before agreeing final purchase with the garage. Would thoroughly recommend for this work. Just a shame they are 300 miles away from home, otherwise I'd ask them to do the regular servicing too. 10/10.

    Great service. They advised they could book me in on a Thursday after my Audi Q7 had a suspension failure. I dropped the car off on a Tuesday because it was virtually un driveable and by Wednesday they had given me a price and repaired the car.

    I'll be dropping the car off for a full service in the future. Natalie and Nathan were great!

    Volksmaster are now my go to for any work on my VW cars. This is because they are very thorough, picking up many things that main dealers miss out and going into detail during diagnostics and problem solving. They are also very helpful, taking the time to give in-depth, detailed and simple explanations which has made my decision making process much easier when getting work done. I want to give a particular mention to Ryan for all of his technical expertise and advice.

    I have had my clutch, water pump and cooling system replaced by them as well as a 4WD repair and I am very happy with all of the work.

    Would highly recommend and I’ll never go back to the dealer. Thanks Bury gang, cars are both great after the parts fitted.

    Had an issue with the air suspension on my Audi Q7. I rang Volksmaster in Bury and spoke to a guy called Mike. He asked me to take the car in and they would have a look. The fault was diagnosed as the level sensor. Mike ordered the part that arrived in a couple of hours and had it fitted he same day. When I went to collect my car the guys had even washed it. Now that’s what you call excellent service. I will be definitely using them again and recommending them to friends and family. Thanks Volksmaster for sorting the issue out so quickly and for fantastic customer service.
