I have a 2008 SRX
with less than 34,000 miles. The ride is rough. I have rented other cars, driven loaners and test-driven new cars and they all seem to ride smoother over the bumps than my car. I don't remember how it was when new but I just read a review of the car when new and it boasts about the great suspension
. Do I need new shocks
at 33,500 miles?
JA: How has the ride been lately? Have you noticed any fluid under the car?
Customer: There is no fluid under the car and recently when it was jacked up at the tire place I looked at the rear shocks and they looked dry. The article says that I have a multi-link suspension in the rear. It should be smooth as silk. Has there been that much advancement in suspension technology since 2007 (it was a new 2008 but I bought it in late 2007)
JA: Are you fixing your SRX yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No. All of the service has been at the dealer.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I can't think of anything. I am really interested to know if suspension technology has advanced siginificantly or if mine is just worn even only at 33,500 miles. Thanks very much for your help.
JA: What year is your '08 MiniE?
Customer: I don't understand the ?
