After jacking the car up, with the car in the air and the tire still on the ground he thought that the strut was broken. So after further investigation, it was noticed that the strut mounting t the frame had fallen thru a rusted hole in the frame of my car. Distraught as I was, and with no help from the Hyundai dealer in the louisville area, I was out of luck on how to rectify this situation. Now I am still paying for a car that I can never drive. I am wanting to know if any other Hyundai owners have this problem. I mean the car is not even 10 years old. . . And the frame is rusting out on me. . . . . There are no other rust spots on the car anywhere. . . . I am just trying to understand why my car is broke and no one is able to help me fix it. This problem occurred on Nov. 3, 2003.

The vehicle involved is a 2001 Mercedes Benz S430. My wife was driving our mercedes 2001 S430 and the front suspension dropped all of a sudden on a back road in the middle of nowhere. First it had dropped so low it prevented steering and was difficult to put vehicle on the shoulder without damaging car. Then we had three towing companies which would not tow the vehicle because of liability to front end damage. I changed the relay through research and was able to get it up enough to be towed. Take into consideration this was taken four days to execute. Then I have never been so happy to have a vehicle towed in my life. Then by that time I new the strut tops have been an ongoing issue with the w220 mb. I had conveyed that to the newmarket, ontario. Canada dealership. But they still had to do diagnostics and for that fee they came up with replacing the front top struts. Which they have a new rebuild kit for. The total so far 760. 00 then they call me back and they could not adjust the level and had to diagnose that. Another charge and ended up with a corroded wire. Out the door boxing day 1290. 00. Two weeks later same problem. They had told me it was common for the suspension to drop in cold weather. And it has been a problem on and off since then.

car   Front Suspension Strut problem of Nissan Armada

I bought my Nissan Armada brand new in 2007. It is a 2006 model. The vehicle is very stylish but it is like a death trap. When the bumper to bumper warranty ran out @ 36,000 miles, my brakes have been an issue. Every year I have had to get brakes put on the Armada and it has to be Nissan brakes because I tried other brakes and they squeal and grind. Now I have an rather scary situation. I was driving 25mph and put my brakes on and my SUV started nose diving in the front end and the brake light came on, not to mention, the brakes would not work properly. It was catching and releasing about 4 times, each time I would brake. I almost hit a car. I drove it to a mechanic right then, and they ran scan on the brake code since the light came on during this event. The code is c1179. Apparently this is a dealer issue. I called the Nissan dealership I bought the Armada from and they told me I needed a software update for the abs system. Really? this is not a recall issue? I have read several reviews and they are are having abs issues. Come on Nissan, how many lives have to be lost or injured before you recall this abs problem? why would they charge consumers $120 for a computer update to the system if it is clearly a manufacturer defect. . . The other issues are: drivers side seat is ripping, poor material, the drivers side floor mat is sliding under the driver pedal, the blind spot is a severe issue on the left drivers side, paint chips easily, bad gas mileage, radiator leaks, strut is bad on the passenger front side, which is causing it to leak on the pavement when parked.

To gain control my wife next tried light acceleration and was able with that and brute force to pull the car onto the side of the road.
