When pep boys first removed the passenger rear engine cradle bolt back in March, the factory nut broke off from being welded to the car body. When a local mechanic recently removed the bolt for related service, he showed it to me. The threads on the middle of the bolt shaft were all seemingly chewed up. The local mechanics best guess was that the air conditioner condenser drains on to that area, which originally weakened the factory welded nut, and causing corrosion on the engine cradle bolt. The bolt won't last long, and I have ordered a replacement bolt, at my expense, to replace the prematurely 'worn' original bolt. Unfortunately, not much can be done to restore having a factory welded nut to receive said bolt. Had I not commissioned the additional work, I may have had a serious accident in the future, unaware of the bolt corroding away!

I am complaining about the control arm bushings popping out. We purchased two brand new vehicles, both G5S on the same day. Both vehicles have control arm bushing problems! the one vehicle was still under warranty and the control bushings were replaced by the dealership. This vehicle was out of warranty at that time and the dealership would only replace them at our cost. I'm sure after reading online complaints that these vehicles have major issues with control arm bushings. I would probably understand if it were one vehicle, but to happen to both brand new vehicles? there is a problem!
