So rang the dealer today, and booked her back in to have the front suspension bushes re-done as in 5 months they have started to knock again ! :thumbdown:

That's not good. I imagine you're not overly rough on driving?

Should they be replacing the bad mounts with a newer better designed part? howcome it broke in such a short period?

Very strange, hope i won't have problems with mine, as they have just been recently replaced. :-( Plus the steering wheel rack and a number of other parts.

I think that the Suspension was the reason FGRob sold his RCZ :eusa-think:

He's quite into cars and it did raise a little concern when he gave his opinion on the suspension parts.

OMG :o
Peugeot must be rubbing their hands together now that us "2010 RCZers" are close to coming out of warranty next year.
I suppose they've got to make all that R&D back on that rear screen somehow :eusa-whistle:

I will be asking them very questions when I get into the dealers. OK I do have speed bumps on my road, but then they are everywhere now anyways.

So had it back a few days now and sorry but I am not totally convinced. The loan car did not make the little knocking sounds over the poor Kent road surface I suffer with here, mine still does.

May have to make a phone call to make another session with the dealer, be next year now (unless world ends on Friday, then may not bother) I bet.
