We had the front controls arms and rear toe links replaced in November 2018. Upon going to purchase new tires, the lf lower control arm w/ball joint were found to be defective and unsafe...we had them replaced immediately for safety reasons as the car is driven hundreds of miles a week and used 6 days a week and couldn't wait until an appointment could be made at the same dealership that replaced it originally. We were told if the dealership had done the repairs/replacement there would have been no charge because it was still under warrenty....we are seeking a refund for the parts under the warrenty only...not the entire bill which included the cost of 2 new tires that were a routine purchase....the invoice is attached with the current work, the original warrenty work and the amount of $316.93 is what we're seeking to be reimbursed for., not the total of $811.34---the invoice is broken out for your review.

My sister was driving my vehicle. She felt car wheels pulling to one side. Vehicle began to veer out of control where she tried to stablize. Picture taken after accident shows that bottom frame of vehicle became unattached from vehicle. The vehicle did not hit another vehicle or anything else solid. The vehicle was in motion on two way street where the vehicle was keeping straight with no turns.
