Bads new .. failed MOT due to broken rear spring! (60K miles)
Good news ...
a) that was the only issue!!!
b) cost £60 fitted .. fixed same day.
Now that wasn't so scary was it!!!
Good news fellah. As a matter of interest, have you had your cambelt and water pump changed yet? I only ask because in the owner manual it states 10 years or 90k which judging by all of the articles I've read, appears ludicrous. I'm having mine done next Wednesday at only 31,000 miles. Standard concensus is that it should be done at 40k or 4 years, whichever comes sooner. Too many ugly stories of the waterpump failing and shredding the cambelt at around the 60k mark, with some failing in as little as 50k.
Mazuk .. it was jus a local garage that I have used for 10 years they always seem to do the right thing!
ExRP .. I had th CB done last year but not the pump.. agreed better safe than sorry .. thanks for the heads up .. reminds me of when I drove from Frankfurt with the A/C compressor siezed in my Volvo S80 .. what a mess!! £1000 to fix.
