steering problem referred to garage because of poor handling when driven. Do you think suzuki should accept some culpability for goods "not fit for purpose" or am I wasting my time seeking an element of recompense
Yes the replacement steering rack was carried out by the Suzuki garage that diagnosed the problem. They said it was the first steering rack they had relpaced in a car of that age and mileage.
The poor handling:-
* felt stiff driving along especially round corners
* felt like it needed tracking but this was checked anf found perfect
* just felt heavy to steer and drive
