This has happened now less than 500 miles after they replaced the subframe and bolts. Will let you know what they find.

Update*. Dealer says same bolt(s) snapped again so factory rep is scheduled to come and look at the car next week.

Update #2: The car was looked at, damage noted, and dealer is awaiting parts to perform repair. So this is the 2nd time now within 500 miles of last snap.
Which side snapped the first time, the right side or the left, and did they replace both when it happened the first time?
