broken steering colum?

well i am more then fed up with this vehicle it has been a F*CKING (pardon my language) nightmare since day one. my rear tire blew on the 401 monday. no i checked the condition of the rest of my tires and they were fine. come today i go around a corner and my car isnt turning (it was wet) i get home it appears that the alignment is really messed up. and both tires were in good shape now they are both worn to the belts, balljoints are newer end links are newer and inner and outer tierods were replaced 3 weeks ago! now when my car is off and i turn my steering wheel slightly, there is a banging in the colum which is felt in and outside the car. so i go to my mech get an oil change and we asess the situation. alignment is fine all looks good cant figure out what the banging is in the colum. i figure out all the parts i need for my rear suspension and it looks ugly i need both rear trailing arms. 2 upper mounts ( the one that was replaced 80,000km ago by chrysler is worn out again. WHAT THE F*CK). and 2 other munts . so im calling head office tmrw and i really want to get my car wrapped in vinyl saying lemon and drive it thru the showroom of the dealer that sold it to me. or park it on the front lawn of headoffice. oh and a family member locked my key in the car so i called rogers roadside assistance and they sent a towtruck for lockout service and they damaged my black vinyl door trim and my door doesent lign up anymore at the top or bottom......just great!

IMO from the few months I have been on this forum.

There are far far too many tie rod/control rod problems. Someone should contact the DOT and have them investigate especially if its a safety issue when they go. The can pressure Jeep to fix the problem. You could still call Jeep and complain about the frequent failures of the suspension. Its not normal for any vehicle.

I know that all 2007 seem to have recurring problems on them but after new parts that still don't stand up.
