Passat boot loading query

Recommended Posts

Hi
Simple question hopefully. I loaded about 125kg of sand into the boot of my car. Is this a safe load for the rear suspension? There was nothing else in the car other than me, and I am only about 75kg. Just a bit concerned it seemed lower the next day, although could be imagining that. Have struggled to work out what the car can take from the manual.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

Many thanks

Hi

125 kg is not a lot of weight to overload the suspension as long as its not in there for a long time and over rough roads then it should be fine.

Its probably your imagination that it is lower but worth checking if the car settles after a while and if leaning to one side when empty I would have the springs checked but unlikely that would happen.
