The most concerning thing for me is that the 2022 was supposed to be thicker to prevent this.

I put a set of digital calipers on the down tube on my 21 yesterday and today on a 22. I don't know where they thickened the tube or went larger on the 22 but it wasnt on the down tube. Good luck with getting the crack fixed. If they don't own it drill a small hole at both ends of the crack so it stops cracking, and any good welder can fix that right up. Dual Phase 980 tube at 1.85 OD doesn't have any wall thickness options from any US vendor but don't know where CA sources there steel.
When you say down tube, the tubes the shock reservoir mounts ?

If so that tube is non structural, I would not expect that to be changed.

Yeah Down tube as in Lower B Pillar not where the reservoirs mount. Checked there and then on the rear horizontal tube that runs along engine tranny. Only thing I could find was an upgrade on the 2020 model that calls out the tube where the trialing arm mounts are and the upper rear shock mount tube. The 2022 does call out 30% just don't know where that 30% increase is located. OP, hope your dealer does you right .
Not what I wanted to hear.

Great info.

the book said All tubes 46.9 (1.85) had thickness changed from 1.4mm to 1.8mm
That is 30 percent more.

By my calculation 1.8 MM Should be .070. Inch. That's pretty thin material.

I just thought about the original material at 1.4 mm and realized that is .055.

I cannot believe they think .070 is adequate let alone .055.

Edit typo

Still better than the .055 thickness. LOL! Remember they use the fancy dual phase 980 which is suppose to be super strong so they can use thinner wall material. LMAO!!!

If they used .095 would it really add that much weight? I would take on extra weight to have .095 at least on the frame.
I agree. .095 in that material would be great.
