Any bugaboo experts?

I bought my bugaboo cam 3 2nd hand it was in perfect condition and got a great bargain.

3 months on the handle/chassis seems to have broken. The left side seems to bounce more and just seems weaker.
I thought I was being paranoid but my mum noticed it straight away the other day too.

Has anyone come across this problem before?
Am I right thinking I need to buy a brand new chassis?
DH doesn't think it's a fatal flaw but I'm not sure I want to risk my PFB in it long term.

I have red fabric and the hood is faded I was planning after the summer to buy a new hood because it's really windy where I live plus I would prefer the extending hood.
Is there a better non fading colour? I was thinking the black looked smart but don't know of that will fade fast.

Between a new chassis and hood at £350 I'm almost wondering if I should sell mine for parts and buy another brand new.

It sounds a bit like the chassis has buckled - usually from things like hanging shopping or changing bags from the handles. It's hard to tell without seeing it though.

98 ah I have been hanging our changing bag off the handle (dd is still in the carrycot so getting to the basket is a pain) but it's not that heavy.

It doesn't really matter how heavy it is unfortunately, I used to work for a baby shop repairing Bugaboos and we used to see this every week for the same reason. sad
You can phone bugaboo for advice but in my experience they always used to replace the chassis if it was in warranty.
