Hi Everyone,

I have an Evoque 2015 (65) Dynamic Lux SD4 in which the offside front suspension coil spring has just suddenly and with no warning catastrophically failed. No warning or indication that this was about to happen was noticed. The car has never been abused, obviously, and the springs look like they are otherwise in great condition.

Has anyone had anything like this happen? The other springs all look great with no rust or visible damage or wear. I had literally just started the engine and was reversing out of the garage when there was a loud bang. The car has now collapsed to the end stops on the suspension and the spring is visibly in two interwoven halves!

Any experience with this failure would be great fully received. i do have the extended warranty still and this should be covered in my view.

thanks

I've had it happen many times on other cars, but not on the Evoque (yet).

Common on all cars nowadays.

Yep, cost cutting on the quality of the steel being used.
It seems to be becoming more prevalent.

Very common on new cars as I understand they use thinner and lighter steel, although not heard of it on the Evoque.

The state of the roads doesn't help either.

TATA steel won't help too

Yep had same on our Volvo, and neighbour on a Nissan Note.

Did snap one on an old Escort, but I was going to the dump with loads of corrugated metal, so probably caused that one myself 😂
