Pothole damage can cause premature wear and tear to the suspension and steering components of your SEAT. Tyres and rims can also be damaged by potholes, but shocks and struts take the biggest brunt of the damage.
They compress and expand using hydraulic oil to alleviate the effects of driving on an uneven surface. Large potholes can even cause the shock or strut to bottom out on itself which then transfers the force to the coil or leaf spring of the vehicle.
In addition to these suspension components, control arms, ball joints, tie rods, wheel bearings and axle shafts are all at risk to pothole damage.
If you have driven through a pothole, you don't know what damage may have been caused. Book a Safety Check with one of our SEAT trained technicians today to ensure your safety and your car's reliability.
Call us at Lookers SKODA and arrange a suitable appointment. Leave your SKODA with us, arrange a 'Waiting' appointment or book a Courtesy Car at the time of your booking so you can carry on with your shopping while we put your car through its MOT paces.
