2013 Volkswagen JETTA Suspension Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemUpon entering my driveway, my driver side axle trailing arm completely snapped. Car has a clean title, bought it from a dealer used with 9k miles on it. I just found out about the global recall and contacted vw directly, the incident and campaign are so new they don't have everything in place to respond. My feeling is there is a manufacturer defect in the metal used & i find it absurd that anyone would have to wait for a side or rear collision to get this part inspected/replaced. I think any client of vw that has a car listed needs to be taken seriously in this campaign - if the trailing arm/axle would have snapped while i was at speed it could have been devastating not only to me, my family but anyone on the road... I'm continuing to talk to vw because my concern is the metal.... And what are the replacement parts made of & when were they made?? I don't intend on paying one cent for this repair & will hold vw responsible 100% for this or any future issues resulting from their defective part/process....
