I have an Alhambra Xcellence TDI Auto first registered in June 2018.

Page 189 of the current handbook states that the electronic parking brake is automatically released when the vehicle starts moving if the drivers door is closed and the driver is wearing his seat belt. However, on mine the brake will release if the door is closed but the driver is not wearing his seat belt. On my previous 2014 manual alhambra this was correct in that if I didnt fasten my seat belt the brake would not release.

My local dealer has told me that SEAT have removed the requirement for the seat belt to be fastened before the electronic handbrake is released on new Alhambras.

Does any one on the forum have a new Alhambra on which they can check this out.
