how fast does a rear sub frame bush wear
Last june my laguna 2 1.9 failed its m.o.t because both rear sub frame bushes where badly wornplus a rear spring was incomplete. I paid the garage £260 to replace the parts and then they passed it.
Since then a knocking sound has begun to get louder and louder so I finally took it back to the garage to get it checked. The guy put it on the ramp and looked undernesth and said yhe rear sub frame bushes are knackered I ssked him to show me and he did they were all cracked. I said they were only changed 11 months ago, he said they'd never been changed then asked who changed them and when I said he did he change his story to the parts hsve failed and it will cost me £100 to fix it as he'll get the part for free.
My problem now is I feel like I've been conned and dont believe he ever changed them and dont feel I should have to fork out again. Does anyone know how long the bushes should last roughly. And does anyone think I've got a leg to stand on
