To check and see if it is a strut problem push down on the rear of the vehicle. the car should only bounce 1 to 2 times once released go from side to side if it bounces more than 2 times that shows a worn strut. You can also jack the vehicle up and check the rear tire for play. if you have play it could be a strut or a trailing arm bushing.

None most likely.
When the the amount of probelems gets high enough, they may do something but not likely because the cost of a recall is more than what it costs to Pay people to settle out of court " if it gets that far" or its cheaper to lose a few customers. This is true with any part on a car.
If " A " (the recall) cost more than " B " the average out of court settlement, Then "C", they dont do one.
Even if it causes accident related Deaths.
Most likely the issue is due to too much weight on one side in the back, an alighnment issue, Bad frame desighn or bad parts like shocks and springs.
If its that severe than i would take it to them and explain that you have reciepts for replacing that same tire over and over. get them to look at it at least three times. Be persistant, especially if its under warranty.
Go durring a busy time when theres other customers around. Dont be crude, just make sure other customers can hear yu.
Explain that you looked online and talked to friends at work and have heard of it from other people and read about it online.
After they fineley aknowledge there may be a problem and they try to fix it three times, it becomes a Lemmon and they have to give you your money back or give you another vehicle of equal value.
Keep all reciepts and papers and everything in case it becomes a legal issue.

We had same problem and it was the tire on driver's side front. The steel belts had seperated and the tire was sunk in the middle. eplaced the tire and it drives fine. Tires were less than tewo years old and still had great tread.

Yes, and it probably is your wheel bearing. Hearing a sound like a chain dragging is classic. You may also hear a clicking noise or chain dragging noise when turning to the left or right.
Look under the car and see if the rubber boots that surround the axle near the tires are cracked and leaking grease. If so, it is almost a certainty that the bearings are bad as you have lost grease and thus lubrication to the bearings.
