I was driving my new Ford 2008 Ford Escape hybrid when the right front assembly fell apart. The wheel buckled under the car which caused me to veer into the oncoming traffic lane. Luckily I did not hit anyone nor anyone including myself was injured. When I had it towed the guy at the dealership said it looked like they forgot to attach the ball joint properly. Im lucky I wasnt on the freeway or in heavy traffic.
