Rear Trailing Arm Failure

Hi everyone I need some help/advice. While driving my car the rear trailing arm on the drivers side failed and I lost control of the vehicle. Thankfully no one was hurt and I got to the side of the road. Originally thought it was an alignment issue/part and took it to get it aligned. The shop told me no way and showed me that the trailing arm was completely shot...Maybe about an inch of metal left holding the hub intact the wheel is aiming outwards now. However I ran my vin and did research. It appears that the recall (Hyundai No.090) was performed on this car in 2010 but all they did back then was apply an anti-rust corrosion film and drill a hole in the trailing arm. Since the recall was "done" am I S.O.L? Even though the part was never actually replaced will Hyundai still honor this now that it has failed? Or do I need to buck up and buy one or try to find one and replace one. The cheapest one I can find is $250. Nearest dealer is 100 miles away and if Hyundai doesn't honor it I still will have to pay $100 for them to "inspect" it unless Hyundai honors it.

It's lawyer tome. You and your family could have been killed. I bet they take it without a retainer. Get the best around.

Of all the things I ever lost I miss my mind the most.
Hey you're not getting any younger

Tow to dealer,, ask them to do a "PA" request for "QQH" rear arm kit..

There is NO INSPECTION FEE<< they should well enough know what is wrong,, been going on for 9+ yr,, unless they live under a rock in some 3rd world cave

These things stilll creeping out of woodwork..

True but would they still honor it even after the recall was completed. They did DO the recall... But the remedy was drilling the holes and using the anti corrosion instead of replacing it. So when you run my vin it no longer shows an open recall.

Alright.. Just nervous with putting in the time to travel back and forth several times but on the same point don't have too many other options. The only part that would be needed to be replaced would be the trailing arms correct? stabilizer bars/wheel bearing/hub/spring/links/wheel sensor would all be able to be reused correct? No hidden fees?

Depends where you live, but note it’s 10+ year old car, every other brand and model may have rusted out parts, there’s no such a warranty can last forever. My dad’s Camry broke the spring and lowered the wheel at 10th year of ownership, and the Toyota dealer in Chicago didn’t give a ****

The car has always been in the rust belt.

What don't you get? I don't care if the thing is stored in a salt mine. It's covered under warranty even if THEY DID THE RECALL.
