Renault Vel Satis 52 reg - suspension ball joints - fair wear and tear?
Just taken my 3 and a half year old Vel Satis for an mot only to be shown that i have excessive movement in both front suspension ball joints. - hence a FAIL!
I have an extended warranty (RAC) that states is does not cover 'fair wear and tear', can anyone (hopefully from a professional viewpoint) comment as to whether a 3 and a half year old car that has done less than 36000 miles should be facing this problem? is this 'fair' wear and tear or a design fault - unreasonable component failure??
