August 1, 2015 the left rear passenger window dropped and the rear of the vehicle. In the same month my Jeep started to slightly fishtail as if driving in very strong/ high winds. Lastly on November 28, 2015 the passenger air bag sign is showing " passenger airbag off" when it was never a illuminated before.

This vehicle is giving me a bunch of problem in the suspension, the first problem is with the front wheel ball joints which is a recall, I took it to the dealer and they said it was fixed years ago but how can it be fixed and still defective? they accept the condition and were willing to repair but only the lower ball joints but they said I have to pay for the upper ball joints which is over $1000, I did not do it and the car drives very unsafe, there is a heavy vibration in the wheel when driving over 30 miles, also the back tires got worn out every 2 months and I have to change them and they said will call me when the part from the fuel tank will be available to change it but hasn't happen yet in more than 5 months.

I had just picked my 5 year old daughter up from school and we was on our way home; we went to turn the corner and it felt like that back of my Jeep was falling off. I lost control and went off the road a bit. Regained control and got the vehicle stopped. Shortly after I got ahold of my step dad and we managed to get the Jeep to the dealership and come to find out my rear control arms broke. Out of nowhere I had no warning or anything I know there is usually some sort of warning when the control arms are about to break.
