Paint & Bodywork Warranty

From the date of registration of your SEAT, you'll receive a three-year paintwork warranty, plus your SEAT will be covered for a 12-year period, against perforation from rust. The warranty against paintwork manufacturing defects on all models is three years from the date of registration. Should a defect occur within the warranty period, a member of the SEAT authorised service network will carry out the necessary repairs free of charge whether or not they sold the vehicle. The only preconditions are:

  • The defect must be reported to a member of the SEAT authorised network as soon as it’s discovered. This must, of course, be within the warranty period
  • The defect must not be due to external influences such as accident damage; climatic, thermal, chemical, animal, bird or industrial pollution; insufficient care or maintenance. This will be determined by a member of the SEAT authorised network at the time of inspection

Anti-Perforation Warranty

All current SEAT vehicles are fully protected during manufacture against corrosion attacking the internal cavities of the bodywork. This warranty protects against perforation due to rust penetration from within the internal cavities of the vehicle to an external surface for 12 years from the date of first registration.

In the unlikely event of this occurring within the warranty period, a member of the SEAT authorised service network will carry out the required repairs free of charge, whether or not they sold the vehicle to you. The only preconditions are:

  • The defect must be reported to a member of the SEAT authorised network as soon as it’s discovered. This must be within the warranty period
  • The perforation must have not been caused originally by damage, neglect, insufficient care or maintenance, or by external rusting
  • The area giving cause for complaint must not have been previously repaired to a lower level of anti-perforation protection
  • A member of the SEAT authorised service network must be advised about any rusting immediately

All repairs will be carried out promptly in accordance with the manufacturer’s technical guidelines, using only approved parts and materials in order to maintain the original level of anti-corrosion protection.
