There was an extremely loud shutter and shake when this happened. Car does seem to operate the same since this problem. Gas mileage has gone down by three mpg, even after a tune up by Chrysler and fuel system cleaning. Shortly after some fuses blew., now at 75,000 there is a lound growning sound when you steer to the left. Brakes have been replaced and need it again. Airconditioner has funny damp smell. How does one find out if this car has been in an accident?

After the replacement of cv joint boot, vehicle started to vibrate. Vibration caused the tie rod end bushings to go bad. Dealer has inspected vehicle, and will repair again at the owners expense.
