A few months ago the brakes on my Mitsubishi Colt started to squeal as I was coming to a stop. It was less than a year old and due for a service in another couple of months so I decided to just wait.
At first Sparshatts said on the phone they would sort it out as part of the service (which was covered by the combined service and breakdown cover policy I had with the car), but when I got there they were unwilling to commit to anything. In the end they apparently blew some air on them to clean off any dust, but after a few miles they started squealing again.
I’m not very impressed. A one year old car should not have brake problems, even if the performance of said brakes does not seem to be affected. I suppose I will have to look into solutions myself.
Otherwise the car is still excellent in most other ways. There is a nasty corner near where I work that is obscured by that pillar I mentioned in my review but I have learnt to look from a different angle there now. I adjusted the mirrors to give a better view of the blind spots which seems to have worked really well, and they are designed such that only the actual mirror moves rather than the whole body so they don’t get pushed out of place by the car wash.
