control arm broke while driving

The car is only 5 years old. I would have liked a bit more from the dealership then, "wow, never heard of that before." I am thankful that it happened at 15 miles per hour when I crashed and not 65 MPH on the Highway when the whole wheel would have rocketed into someone.

I hope that someone looks at this deeply, it's scary how rusty these Altimas get.

  • CVT transmission
  • 80,000 miles

Why would a control arm break at 80,000 miles? Why is Nissan selling a car if the control arms are failing on any of their cars? I don't understand how they can put this car on the road. I just feel that this is a big safety issue. What is the recourse for Altima owners? Why would a car with less than 100,000 miles have so many problems with corrosion? I just want to know that my car will be safe.
