Coil springs breakage is a common problem on lots of cars not just this car.

" Coil springs breakage is a common problem on lots of cars not just this car."

Other cars with springs breaking were not bursting the tyres or recalled because of it !!!!!!!! The guy has every right to ask about this particular vehicle .
