Car bounces down the road...
I bought a second hand DS4 (1.6 diesel) which is 4 years old and when I bought it 3 months ago it drove like a dream. Smooth, great handling and great acceleration. I had previously had a brand new DS4 on leasehire so know the car well if that makes sense?
A week ago I started off to go to work in the car and literally I can feel every bump in the road. It feels like the car is bouncing down the road, and weirdly it's heavilly pulling to the left. I never had this experience before with any car, let alone a DS4.
I took it back to the dealer as it's under warranty. I believe the shocks are gone or there's a suspension fault. Surprise, surprise, the dealership are saying there's nothing wrong with the car and it drives fine. It feels dangerous to drive and my gut feeling, knowing this car having now owned two makes me think they're fobbing me off. The warranty runs out this week, so am set to challenge the dealership manager tomorrow.
I sent this summary to the dealership which they've dismissed since the car has been back (even though it's absolutely what's happening).
- Car is bouncing on the road over any small minor bump.
- Feeling every bump.
- Pulls to one side (left)
- Diving, leaning and rolling (like the suspension isn't right).
- Takes longer to stop when braking and lurches forward.
Has anyone else experienced the 'bouncing down the road' and 'pulling to the left'? I suspect both are easy to get sorted, but in the face of this dealership saying there's no problem I want to be able to argue my case, especially as I only bought the car three months ago.
Any help would be great.
