Should Vauxhall make a contribution to this?

My son owns a Vauxhall Combo Van which he uses for his work.

In 2009 he had to have a new ECU fitted which was carried out at a Vauxhall dealership using approved parts.

On friday last he had to be towed in to the garage. The problem has been diagnosed as a faulty ECU unit which needs to be replaced. Do you think that it is reasonable for such a unit to last only four years and do you think it is likely that Vauxhall should make a contribution towards the cost?

Probably the stupid location of it in the hostile environment of a front wheel arch.
