Control arm bushing

Afternoon everyone

Quick question about warranty repairs. My passenger side ca bushing is gone since i get that noticable wheel wobble when i brake. Are bushing covered under warranty? I have about 4k left on my warranty and i need to milk it

Not sure , however, now would be a good time to inspect for rust, and any imperfections and go to the dealer to clean everything up for you.

probably just the faulty one. Check all the seams, door ridges insideout, trunk hood, fender wells, EVERYTHING, since the rust preforation warranty will cover it all.
