a little rant here..
My car went in for a service today at my local (family ridden) vaux garage... i got a phone call this afternoon saying all was fine apart from the headlight adjustor motor was bolloxed (which i knew about anyway) and both rear springs had snapped .. NOW i've had the car for 2 1/2 years now and i've already had to have the 1 rear spring replaced once before... which has lasted about 18months and the other one now has gone aswell....
It is winding me up to be fair as i've driven about 25 cars/vans since i've past my test.. my astra been the 3rd one i've owned myself and ive never snapped a spring on anything else i've driven.. even company vehicles which i give loads of shit to and ignore speed bumps half the time.. yet have always been ok with springs.
im wondering though... are the astra Sri springs more stiffly sprung making then weaker on speed bumps/pot holes or is something seriously wrong with my car??
