Neon 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 51,500 miles
Had stopped at a stop sign, was proceding thru intersection when there was a loud "bang"and it felt as if something had fallen off the car.stopped vehicle and gave it an exterior inspection that found 1 tire pointing in the the expected direction and the driver's side tire pointing off in a different direction.had car towed to dealership who advised both tie-rods are broke and need to be replaced.this is a 2000 Dodge Neon with about 51,500 miles on it. Over the phone the service person advised this is not normal wear&tear and that these parts could not be greased. I had a Honda with over 250,000 miles on it and the tie rods never broke and my husband has a Chevy truck with over 148,000 miles and his tie-rods are fine. The service person advised that we would be responsible for the bill to repair this.service dept.was advised that we wanted the old parts saved and they agreed.
