2020: Seat recalls

Six recalls for six Seat models in 2020


In 2020, Seat announced six recalls for six models through the EU Rapex system.

Seat was also affected by the Volkswagen Group’s recall for three-cylinder 1.0 TSI engines. In the Spanish carmaker case, these are the Arona, Ateca, Ibiza, Leon and Toledo models manufactured between 2018 and 2020.

Other recalls mainly concerned airbags and seatbelts. The exceptions are a defect in the brake booster with the 2019 and 2020 Ibiza models and a defective fuel tank with Tarraco SUVs manufactured between January to February 2020.

All the recalls sorted by models are listed in the tables below.



We’ve written about some problems in more detail in a separate article.
