My vehicle, has a rough ride, traction light flashes often. I had several repairs done on my front in June 2014, (upper, lower control arms, left and right sides, rotors, brakes and tires are always needed). On February 2,2015 my left front ball joints and control arms broke and my wheel broke off, I am currently in need of more control arm and strut repair on my right side again! my vehicle clumps and has a rough ride, I am in constant fear driving this vehicle, because of the constant issues with my front end, even after its repaired.
