 Description of the problemI've owned the car for less than 2 years - it's a 6 year old car with a single previous owner, always lived in a garage, well maintained, etc. I was driving home on the highway one morning and suddenly my steering wheel yanked out of my hands, swerved to the right, and locked up. I could barely keep the car in the lane and had to drive like a video game, constantly shaking the steering wheel back and forth. I tried to make it one more exit, but couldn't safely so i pulled over. Only had to test drive it ~20 feet before we realized the drivers rear wheel nearly fell off. We laid on the ground and looked underneath the car and saw the control arm had snapped and broken off due to rust. Sure enough in the shop, my mechanic found that both sides had completely rusted and both had to be replaced to safely drive the car. This problem is due to a faulty design of the control arm that allows water to pool on top and not drain - the water sits on the control arm in a divet and the metal rusts away. Fortunately, my mechanic cleverly fixed the problem on the replacement control arms by welding a plate on top to prevent water collection and future rust.
