>.< lost my steering, Wagon1's back in the shop

uhg well my cars at the dealer yet again ( towed this morning) was driving and all of a sudden I heard a loud bang Squeal of metal on metal the wheel wouldn't turn and I was being dragged to the right

Got out looked under the car and nothing looked broken or damaged so I got in the wheel still wouldn't turn and I couldn't move it

towed it to Ford and they told me both right balljoint's were borderline to breaking, inner tierod locked up outter tierod was borderline to breaking (Also noted that he told me he broke the passenger tierod from whacking it with his palm) I lost both Stabilizer endlinks and the spring broke for the third time..

I miss my Focus im stuck with a 09 Nissan Altima and frankly is rather disgusting

car is brand new has 10,093 and the engine shudders if Im cruising and hit the accelerator it sounds like a low end rumble and hesitates, granted has more power but the seats uhg i would rather sit on a cinderblock at least my rear will numb faster...

whats upsetting me right now i was promised it would be done by 4:30pm ( it was dropped off at 9:45am) Ive yet to get a call of completion I drove to the dealer and looked through the service bay window and my baby is up on the hoist with no front suspension/wheels/brakes its all been removed on both sides.. it looks like something went REALLY wrong from what i saw..

right now I dunno whats worst off My wagon at the dealer or the non running wagon on my driveway

P.S. Estimate was just shy of $900 in work
