Rain and problems

I was driving my X6 during strong thunderstorm rain two days ago and didn't get inside huge patches of water. But after stop my car for some hours I felt it with a problem while turning like car will get break, and metal sound while turning. It is a 2019 model with 4000km and BMW now is saying that the problem was create by water they won't cover it. Anyone has ideia what can be it?

did you drive through a big puddle (very deep), when you should not have, if you did they would probably consider it abuse and not cover it,
you also say "if it happened by water they will not cover it" that is probably what we are hearing, usually in a rainstorm, no water will get in unless you drive purposely
through deep water
