: Front subframe bolts missing / torn - is this common?

I am about to put my V through inspection, and while replacing the front swaybar bushings my mechanic noticed that the front subframe on one side had become detached. One of the bolts was missing, and the other had torn.

He is able to repair the subframe and reattach it, but I am curious as to whether this is a common problem with these cars, or if it indicates a potential problem elsewhere as well?

Pictures? I'm trying to figure out where you're talking about.

i unfortunately don't have pics, and I haven;t been to the shop yet to see it myself.

it sounds exactly like what happened in this thread: http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/2004-2007-cadillac-cts-v-general/163969-bolt-missing.html

Sounds like the same thing Maui had going.

Hope you get this all sorted out.
