Our attention has been drawn to the letter published in your November issue from Mr. W. J. May in which he queries the present day quality of Koni Shock Absorbers, with which he has been well satisfied in the past.
We hasten to assure you and your readers that, far from any question of a reduction in quality, the Koni Manufacturer’s are continually seeking ways to improve still further the quality of Koni shock absorbers, both to increase their already high standards of performance and to give them even longer mileage.
We have many instances in our files, including a very recent report to us from the Editor of another motoring journal of Konis having been moved from a succession of cars, resulting in a total mileage of 300,00 miles and over [I read of this rather miserly but convincing demonstration!—ED.] And this with only partial use of the adjustment which would prolong their life even further.
Konis have built a high reputation with a world-wide motoring public for a quality product designed to give maximum improvement in suspension control, coupled with exceptionally long life and this is a reputation which the Koni manufacturers guard jealously and are constantly striving to improve upon.
We can only conclude that Mr. May has been unfortunate in his recent experience with the fitting of Konis to his own Jaguar and to his wife’s Volvo and if he would care to get in touch with us, we will do all we can to redress the situation.
