yep I was told that there would be no service book. Guess it is to help Seat keep the servicing within the dealerships. Not very helpful when you come to sell the car as there will be no 'service book' to show what's been done. Instead you have to rely on your invoices. I can understand tax etc being done electronically but the service book is crucial to show what and when the services were carried out.
And it probably helps Seat keep the servicing within the dealerships.
VW have also this. About a year ago I got our 2018 Golf Alltrack. No service book. I bought one as a “spare part” for about 10 EUR. Of cause I want a service book ! When I do extra oil changes between ordinary service I write it in the book. Save the invoices – yes but the book gives you a good over view.
As previously stated, no service book benefits Seat only. Should have gave customers the choice, book or no book. It's a real hardship for a dealership to stamp a book. I'd rather have a book with receipts, than a handful of receipts, with no book.
