    I agree - thats pretty unusual that a car with only 30,000 miles would have all these problems with these suspension and steering components. Obviously - a car that has been wrecked or hit lots of potholes and curbs might have these problems. We'd be more than happy to take a look at your car and give you a second opinion. Please call us at 770-876-6956 to setup an appointment and we can take a look at it for you at no charge.

    Thanks,

    Sounds like your being taken for a ride. Tell them you have a warr. good for 50K miles and make them repair it for nothing.
