Check your front and rear stabilizer bars. Sounds like at least one broke or came unhooked when you bottomed out. HTH. -Jim

Stabilizer links sounds right..... also check your front track bar for it being loose (worn bushing or loose ball socket )...I have also seen the control arm brackets brake off the front diff and look attached when they are really not...2013 should still be under powertrain warranty check with the dealership to see if it will be covered

Thanks for the reply, dealer here sucks am in kuwait...left the car with them for a month.....only reply is we did the best we can...anyway thanks for info will try to check the parts u mentioned.
