Rear Shock Absorbers

Recommended Posts

My 3 year old Rav4 failed its first MOT a week ago with both rear shocks leaking, my local Toyota dealer says it cant get any new ones for at least 12 days. The only reason I can think for the delay is that they don't usually fail. Anyone got any ideas ?

I noticed 3 of mine were weeping slightly when I serviced it 3weeks ago. It was 8 days before its 3rd birthday. Rang my dealer, dropped it in for them to have a look and they stuck 4 new ones on F.O.C under warranty. I wonder if they are using an updated shock and waiting for them to come in?

Changed three sets on the rear in as many weeks,some leaking quite bad,all three just out of warranty.
