Now I'm at 87,100 miles but I know it needs subframe bushings. This cars been driving me crazy since fall last year. I've changed all motor mounts, mass air flow sensor, front brakes and rotors. Passenger side cv axle, control arms,passenger rear door accuator. Now the dealership said I need left control arm again and ball joint. Put new tires on last week. Ready to trade this car in...

Wow- your roads and highways must be extremely rough to cause that much damage to suspension components. If you're commuting with three other full sized adults, I'd suggest moving up to a larger car. How about a Altima or Maxima if you're looking for a late model car?

Have you looked on RockAuto, you can get a complete lower control arm (with bushings & ball joint) for $25-$65 (OE is $95).

Replaced inner and outer tie rods now going to put new struts. These vehicles are not built like they used to be. Just going to change out all front suspension parts that need it. get my alignment done so I can get back out on the road
