Customer Question

I have a Seat Altea 2009 1.9 TDI. On a few occasions over the past 2 weeks the engine stalls for 1-2 seconds at 70mph. When this happens the lights come on the dashboard, the interior lights flicker on and the stereo volume goes down. Everything corrects itself after a few seconds but getting very concerned about this fault.
