Hello, the other day I was driving my 03 Ford Escape to the gas station and when turning I heard a sound that sounded like my left front tire rubbing the inside of my fenderwell. I figured it was no immediate danger. So I continued on. Not long after that my cars wheel locked up and brought me to a sudden stop in the middle of the road. I got out to inspect what happened and here my wheel was basically snapped off the subframe. My lower control arm split into two. My cv joints got ripped off. My tire rod was the only thing holding my wheel on. My car is of course older, and the model I have is known to have a rust problem with the subframe that could lead to bad corrosion and then causing the lower control arm separating. (Ford had a recall on over 300.000 escapes from 01-04)
I live in the "salt belt" so the corrosion was sped up.
I was told my car is most likely totaled. But I want another opinion
Thanks for taking the time to respond to my question
have the same problem?
