Title: Car warranty - suspension
Post by: Black9 on December 07, 2019, 04:33:50 AM
Can anyone confirm whether warranty covers suspension components such as arb droplinks etc - or are they classed as wear and tear?

What warranty are you referring to? These cars are @ a decade out of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Wear and tear.  UK warranties usually only cover major component failure, such as engines, gearboxes and expensive electronics.

What you need is and American style 'bumper to bumper' warranty if you want everything covered, but I don't think such a thing is available in the UK.

It’s a Toyota warranty. Coming the end of the 5 years.

It is highly unlikely that you will have any recourse for wear and tear items after such a long time.
