If you read the reasons very carefully as to the most frequent claims on all of these cars, the problem that seems to come out on top is steering and suspension the obvious reason for this is the stupid speed humps that we have to endure on almost all of our minor roads, what idiot's the plebs who decided we should have to endure these ridiculous so called safety measures must be, it wouldn't be so bad if they were maintained properly but they are not and neither are the roads.
I think the warranty companies should hold the plebs responsible for the claims they have to pay out.
