  • A number of suspension component failures have cropped up recently, beginning with a Nissan Micra 09 reg rear shock absorber, the wording of the Rfr is “serious fluid leak”. As can be seen in the image the dirt and dust on the whole shock absorber body and lower bush area has a damp wet look whilst the other components in the vicinity have a uniform dry dusty look to them, a sure sign the fluid is coming from the shock.

    Re: Front Suspension failure in Chevy Beat!

    Can you please share the exact month of manufacture of this Beat? I know we have a lot of Beat owners on the forum and, if their car is from the same batch, they could carry out the necessary precautions. At the minimum, a checkup. At best, preventive part replacement.

    GTO,
    Thats the exact reason why I created this thread. Here are the details.

    Month of Manufacture - October 2010.
    Chassis number - MA6BF482KAT032701

    Beat owners, please do a check. Just in case.

    Shocking! I'm just glad that no one was seriously injured (or worse) in this accident. I've heard of unreliable cars, but as Mpower posted, the brakes / steering / suspension are critical to safety. And they rarely fail! Manufacturers usually over-engineer these three functions, because failure can lead to complete loss of vehicle control (as it happened with your friend's Beat).

    Do keep us updated on how this matter progresses.

of the lessons of earlier times. Early suspension bridge failures resulted from light spans with very flexible decks that were vulnerable to wind (aerodynamic) forces. In the late 19th century engineers moved toward very stiff and heavy suspension bridges. John Roebling consciously designed the 1883 Brooklyn Bridge so that it would be stable against the stresses of wind. In the early 20th century, however, says David P. Billington, Roebling's "historical perspective seemed to have been replaced by a visual preference unrelated to structural engineering."
