thanks for the reply's and the link, I will take the Ka for a 2'nd opinion,
done 300 miles now and its creaking most small lumps never mind speed bumps.
its daft this, I thought if I paid a few quid and got a car from a bigger
supplier, I would get my moneys worth. I thought these kind of problems were
a thing of the past with trading standard / heath and safety laws that
govern our every move! Silly me, I trusted the salesman!
