The emissions fix has caused problems with our SEAT - what can we do?

We had the emissions fix done in our SEAT Ibiza 1.6 in January 2017, but - with 55,000 miles on the clock - it has just had to back to dealership with an engine block warning light and flashing coil light. They said they couldn't find any codes stored in memory after having the car for three days. The car has now gone into limp mode with both the engine block and flashing coil light back. What do you recommend we do?

Well, basically the Volkswagen Group has promised to fix any problems consequential of the NOx emissions fix for two years from the fix and up to 160,000 miles, so if your dealer isn't fixing your vehicle, get onto SEAT Customer Care and demand a fix. If nothing is forthcoming, join one of the class actions against the Volkswagen Group over this issue.
