The speed sure not exceed 10km,C200 is unscathed that just fender surface grazed a little!

Which part is the strongest on lower control arm? steering knuckle? body of lower control arm? or front bushing? rear bushing? linkage?
What is linkage?
Linkage is in the front bushing, allways be called bolt!
Since 2014,GM desing a new structure bolt!Named Spllit-type bushing.
In fact the split bushing is a split-type bolt in bushing!

In China there have been thousands and thousands Envisions sold and on the road. How many problems reported or known for this problem? And is for new low mileage or older high mileage Envision vehicles? Is your country taking action to recall in China?

This is first we have heard of this in the U.S. but Envision only 15+ months old here.

attachments picture is clear show that split-type bushing plastic deformation,and this Envision doesn't have the accident! Drvier tell us ,He find the front tire has wear and tear,then see bushing plastic deformation,He feel frightened and have to drive carefully to replace the lower control arm,and have to Reinforce the structure!
