I had an accident wete care veried hard left and had accident. Insurance and local authorities blamed me for incident. Car front end wad completely rebuilt and within one year I have a lower control arm that has broken due to manufacture defect. Mold of steel to ball joint- rubber. It has broken again and VW will not stand behind stating warranty on chassis components are one year. How does a mojor chassis component fail and and a high safety issue, not stant behind this type item. It has now torn up a new front strut and top strut tower. What are my options as I just had recall completed for failure of rear trailing arms and VW inserted plates to strengthen. What arey options as this is a grave safety issue and im being asked to spend 3K to replace after we just spent 14K to rebuild front suspension after accident.
