Re: All going Chinese! Who makes what now?

Both track rod ends failed on my Clio at about 80,000 miles I was offered Renault ones at something like 24 each or after market 9 each seeing as I considered 80,000 a pathetic mileage for then to fail at I went aftermarket I was surprised to find one fitted with a grease nipple " when did you last see one of those" but both seemed well built and I have not had any problems I don't have a clue were they were made and doubt they can be any worse than the org ones.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
