â€‹Honda has been as good as gold, done a couple of home services on it the last 20k, with it needing another service I dropped it off at national tyres as it was Â£45 for oil and filter so not worth my hassle doing it, and the fact that I have zero time to do it myself.
â€‹A few points over the last 15-20k. another set of tyres. Thanks to autoshite as I used the tyreleader website. Uniroyal Rainexpert, seems my front pads are getting close to needing changing after 16k and 12 months which I don't think is very good as about 10k is motorway driving but I've already got some new Brembo ones ready for the swap.
â€‹I had my MOT done a month early as I'm always getting it done just before Christmas and it's a pain as I'm always broke with kids and all, anyway, The last couple of years the ball joints have flagged up as an advisory, this year not even flagged up. just track rod ends which I replaced. always same garage.
Back to today it went to National Tyres for the oil and Filter and he asked when the MOT was due as the lower suspension arms were 'severally rusted' he seemed a little surprised when I said a couple of weeks ago as it should have been flagged up and probably an MOT failure. Also the CV boot is ripped and grease everywhere and should be a fail, again nothing said by my MOT man. National didn't push for the work and just advised that I should get it done.
Two questions really, could the suspension arms really be that â€‹ rusty? I'll take a look tomorrow in the light, CV boot or new cv joint? it does really knock on the passenger side..
