We turned into a parking on December 23, 2015 and it sounded like the bottom literally fell out. We managed to get all the way into the parking lot and called a tow truck. The lower ball joint on the driver side was completely broken. The upper control arm was also broken. Needless to say the wheel was no longer attached. We had no idea there was a recall. It cost us $779 to fix it, which could have been much worse, considering the dealership wanted $1800! I wish I'd known about the recall.
