    Default Upper Trailing Arms

    My four year old Veccy Saloon went for her second MOT last week and failed on excess movement in the bushes on the upper trailing arms (near and offside). She's only done 61thousand miles and only rarely gets anything heavier than a hi-viz coat shoved in the boot so I was shocked to say the least. £300ish later it was all fixed and back on the road.

    Anyone else had this problem?

    What made it worse was it was only a few days out of Network Q warranty!
    Hats off to Evans Halshaw Vaux in Leeds who despite taking all my money gave reasonably good customer service.

    Mine recently had the upper rear arms as an advisory on MOT test.
    Not bad considering it's sat at 107,000 miles

    Well the parts were £62 each, I'd have loved to do it myself but I had a motorcycle crash last week and I'm still in a certain amount of pain.
