The SEAT Tarraco and Ateca, under suspicion of a defect in the brake pedal that could cause accidents

The General Directorate of Consumption of the Ministry of Consumption has published in its alert network a notice that concerns the SEAT Tarraco Y SEAT Ateca of the years 2020 and 2021: a possible brake pedal defect of these models can cause a road accident.

A potential problem with the solder joint

According to the notice of the Ministry, in some vehicles with DSG double clutch transmission There is a possibility of a poor solder joint between the brake pedal and the brake pedal plate, and warns:

“By pressing the brake pedal with greater force, as may be necessary when performing an emergency braking, it cannot be ruled out that the brake pedal plate will be deformed, or even detach.”

It seems that this problem is limited to models sold in Catalonia, hence SEAT has communicated the problem to its consumer authorities and, as described in the alert, has contacted the owners of the Tarraco and Ateca affected to check if the solder joint between the brake pedal and the brake pedal plate has been made correctly.

Otherwise, the protocol to follow is to replace the brake pedal.
