IM SO FRUSTRATED! WHAT IS WRONG WITH MY CAR?

2008 Mazda 3

Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2008 Mazda 3 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 76,000 miles

LAST YEAR I WAS INVOLVED IN A ACCIDENT. MY TIRE COUGHT SOMETHING ON DA ROAD, ENDED UP BREAKING MY AXLE. MY CAR WAS TAKEN TO AN AUTOBODY SHOP WHERE THEY DID MY WHOLE SUSPENSION, REPLACED MY AXLE, STROUTS, AND REPLACED MY AC SINCE IT GOT CRUSHED/PUNCTURED. EVERY SINCE I GOT MY CAR BACK, IT JUST DOESNT FEEL DA SAME. I TOOK IT TO GET SEEN TWICE LAST YEAR. THEY REPAIRED MY CAR IN JUNE AND JULY AND I PICKED IT UP IN AUGUST. I WOULD HEAR A POPPEN SOUND EVERY ONCE IN A BLUE MOON WHEN I WOULD TURN. ITS COMING FROM MY RIGHT FRONT TIRE AREA. BUT WHEN I TOOK IT TO THEM, THEY DIDNT HEAR ANYTHING. THEY VISUALLY INSPECTED AND RETIGHTENED AND GREASED MY CAR UP. IT WHEN AWAY FOR SOME TIME AND EVENTUALLY I HEARD DA POPPEN NOISE WHEN TURNING. THIS YEAR I TOOK IT IN MAY, TOLD EM TO INSPECT IT, DAT I WAS HEARING DA POPPING NOISE WHEN GOEN OVER BUMPS NOW, AND STILL WOULD HEAR DAT POPPING SOUND EVERYONCE IN A BLUE MOON AND ITS COMING FROM MY FRONT RIGHT TIRE. BUT THEY DONT HEAR IT WHEN THEY TEST DRIVE IT. THEY INSPECTED, RE-TIGTENED, AND GREASED UP MY CAR AGAIN. I DIDNT HEAR IT FOR A WHILE. I GOT TOLD DAT AS SOON AS I HEAR IT TO BRING IT BACK. THE SOUND CAME BACK. BUT NOW IT WAS EVEN LOUDER, IT SOUNDED LIKE SOMETHING WAS LOOSE AND MY CAR SOUNDS LIKE ITS OLD WHEN I GO OVER BUMPS OR TURN TO SHARP, OR IF I TURN. I HEAR DA POPPEN NOISE. AT THE BEGINING OF AUGUSTI TOOK IT BACK. THE AUTO BODY SHOP DIDNT LET ME DRIVE DA VEHICLE, IT WAS DANGEROUSE. TWO DAYS LATER, I PICK MY CAR UP. THEY DIDNT FIND ANYTHING WRONG. BUT THE NOISE WHENT AWAY! THEY RETIGHTENED EVERYTHING AND GREASED IT UP LIKE ALWAYS. I DONT GET IT! THE NOISE CAME BACK EVEN WORST!I MEAN DA POPPING, NOW MY CAR STARTED FEELING SHAKY WHEN I WOULD HIT AROUND 70. IT SCARRES ME SO BAD I BREAK DOWN. I TOOK MY CAR BACK 10 DAYS LATER, IT JUST SCARRES ME, SPECIALLY AFTER THEY TOLD ME IT WAS DANGEROUS. THEY DID THE SAME, AND NOTHING, I KEEP TAKEN THEM MY CAR AND MY INSURANCE IS NOT LETTING ME TAKE IT TO THE MAZDA DEALERSHIP, THEY EXPECT ME TO PAY OUT OF POCKET! DIS IS CRAZY! I TOOK MY CAR TO GET VISUALLY INSPECTED IN TWO DIFFERENT SHOPS, MY STROUTS ARE OKAY AND MY BRAKES ARE GOOD. THE PLACES JUST TOLD ME TO LET THE SOUND AND THINGS GET BAD ENOUGH FOR THEM TO HEAR SINCE THEY TOLD ME TO COME WHEN I DO HEAR IT. I JUST BOUGHT MY TIRES LAST YEAR (2MNTHS BF MY CAR INCIDENT)AND THEY WERE BADLY WORE DOWN. SPECIALLY DA ONE DAT WAS ALWAYS ON DA FRONT RIGHT. THEY DIDNT EVEN LAST 40,000 MILES N THEY ARE 80,000 MILE TIRES! IVE BEEN TAKEN IT TO GET ALIGNED AND MY TIRES ROTATED PERIODICALLY. I EVEN WHENT DOWN TO EVERY 5000 TO GET MY TIRES ROTATED AND MY ALIGNMENT CHECKED EVERY THREE MONTHS. I GOT MY CARS MAINTNANCE DONE AND REPLACED ALL MY TIRES. THE NOISE STILL THERE. N MY RIGHT FRONT TIRE IS SHAKKY NOW. ITS STARTING TO SOUND AS BAD AS B4. A FEW DAYS AGO I WAS DRIVING AND WHEN I BREAKED. MY CAR DIDNT WANNA STOP, BUT I FELT AND HEARD MY BREAKS. IDNT UNDERSTAND. LIKE MY CAR DIDNT RESPOND. I TOOK MY CAR TWO DAYS LATER AFTER I REPLACED MY TIRES. I FELT DA VIBRATION BUT THEY DIDNT. THEY TELL ME WITH NO NOISE WHEN THEY TEST DRIVE, THEY CANT CHECK MY CAR. MY INSURANCE IS REDICULOUSE. ALL THE PLACES WHERE THEY WANNA SEND ME IVE BEEN CALLEN AND ASKING TO TALK TO THE PERSON THAT WOULD BE WORKEN ON MY CAR AND MOSTLY ALL OF EM TELL ME JUST TO TAKE IT TO THE DEALERSHIP. DA POPPEN NOICE I HEAR MORE OFTEN, WHEN I PULL OUT OF MY PARKING I HEAR DIS NOICE WHEN TURNING MY WHEEL. MY CAR IS STARTING TO FEEL VIBRATIND AT LOWER SPEEDS NOW LIKE 30MPH-50MPH EVEN. IM FRUSTRATED. I DNT WANT MY CAR TO MESS UP! I WAS DRIVING ON DA FREEWAY LAST NIGHT AND MY CAR DIDNT SPEED UP! MY MPR DIDNT EVEN GO PAST THREE! DA FASTED IT WHENT WAS 60 MPH FOR A GOOD MINUTE! I DNT KNO WHAT TO DO. I HAVE BASICALLY STOP DRIVING MY CAR, ONLY WHEN I ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO CUZ IM SCARRED MY CAR IS GONNA BREAK ON ME.
