Dangerous on Highway

2011 Jeep Compass Limited 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl CVT)


We had purchase our Jeep Compass Latitude 6 weeks ago. While driving on the freeway there was a loud explosion type sound and then the front driver's side collapsed. Luckily my son was able to safely get to the center divide and stop only to find that the entire front driver's wheel had completely snapped off leaving only the center part of the hub cap bolted on and the rotar filed down. The Highway patrol officer and tow truck drivers had never seen anything like it. However, the dealership is trying to tell us that we must of hit a curb to cause a blowout. How does a blowout cause the entire wheel to rip off of a car? Others are telling us it's a possible design defect. BEWARE!

Exactly! How does just driving down the highway cause an entire wheel to rip off? Rotor filed down? Your son is not coming clean to exactly what happened.
