The inner structure is broken. Suspect a wreck or a really, really stupid prior owner.

Definitely replace that. You should be able to find one on car-part.com.

I would think that a 2018 should still be under warranty for something like that. It is a safety issue so bring it to the dealer.

It won't be warranty if somebody broke it or the car is a wreck repair. Frankly, I don't see any way that could happen other than accident impact or abuse.
