Re: Suspension Bush problems
Dealer replaced both on my 147, front at 24,000 miles, and rear at less than 12,000 miles under warranty, their diagnosis. I didn't report any problems.
When I said I was surprised the service receptionist just said "they needed doing".
I assumed rightly or wrongly this was a precaution rather than wear. Road surfaces locally are particularly bad. Can they show wear at these low mileages? Or were the bush's design improved and a re-work instigated by either the dealer or Alfa UK?
I believe my 36,000 mile 145 probably needed them replaced also but never hearing of the problem (passed MOT ok) they were not done.
