I've never heard of this 7 year spares guarantee, is this a legal requirement on behalf of the manufacturer?
Mmm not sure if its a legal requirement, but it is quite common (in electronics manufacture) that manufacturers guarantee availability of spare parts for 7 years after the last date of production (its not really difficult as the level of commonality is amazing .... its usually bespoke parts, assemblies or trim/cosmetic parts that cause the problem.)
I'm sure I've read this somewhere for cars as well but I cant be sure. I'll do some digging ... maybe a call to
will confirm it or if any of the RTE's know?
It might even be a DOT requirement.
Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
