Well, I knew it ... I mentioned in a previous post that it had been several weeks ... nearly 3 months since the bus had been in the dealers .... spoke too soon ......
Last night while filling up with fuel at Tesco's, a god almighty crack was heard .... and a large chunk of rear
spring shot out from under the car ..... yup... rear
Jacked up the car and removed the wheel ... confirmed the 1st bottom
was missing from the O/S rear
I was pised-off big style .... but a quick look at the other side told a much worse story, it also had the bottom of the
missing ... TWO BROKEN REAR
How did it happen .... ?
Age of car - 30mths - still under warranty (I await the dealer discussion on why they are not covered)
Mileage - 17000miles
Over loaded - 3 kids under 12 ... I dont think so .....
Off Roading - Glasgows roads are not any worse than the rest of the country.
Overloaded towbar - nope, bike carrier only ... max weight 72Kg including the bikes and the rack.
Its in the dealers right now .... parts not in stock (big surprise there .... parts are never in stock
I'll keep you up to date .....
Has anyone else had rear
springs fail on an Espace IV?
