My van was hit while parked on a street. Guy busted his front tire on my rear drivers rim, shredding my tire, and the wheel on that side was sitting at a weird angle along with damage to the sliding door and panels. The van was pushed into the curb in the hit as well and the other rim was damaged. We had to give them the van after getting it back the first time because the rim that seamed minimally scraped, at first was bent, and the doors were reinstalled missing latching mechanisms that keep them from freely sliding. Then we had to take it back again because the brakes they put on were defective, but fortunately they noticed our bearings were bad so they threw that in for our trouble. But now we have had our van back two weeks after about a month on and off of this back and forth, and today the axle beam broke on the left side by the wheel, while I was on the highway.
I am looking at this flimsy (what is it a 1/2" thick?) Metal band with a nearly clean cut looking break in it, and the designed bends and curves in it, however subtle and functional, and I can see a possibility of it not showing before it goes, but I am not an expert, so I am here. My wife was already understandably upset with the shop, so I am trying to be sure I am the voice of reason here, and if this could happen to anyone, or happens all the time, then I can calm her down more about it? But I do not want to be calming her when we should be upset too. Thanks
have the same problem?
