I would first suggest that you contact the selling dealer and stress that this is something that they need to correct. There should have been some warranty documentation that came with the car, related to certain components that a used car dealer is required to cover under warranty. Then again, I'm just assuming that you bought it from a dealer rather than an individual.
Unfortunately, no. I'm about as far away from you as possible, in the continental US. I'm in the Western NY area.
If your independent has the correct scan tool available, then I would suggest at least getting the suspension problem read out, and then I could suggest a plan of attack to correct the problem.
