problem #1

  • Automatic transmission

I was driving an 1996 Audi A6 on highway 95 in Florida at about 7pm on Thursday March 8, 2007. Traveling about 73 mph. The left front tires tread was separated from the tire itself. This caused me to dangerously swerve in traffic. I pulled to the side of the road and saw a great deal of damage done to the front left side of the car, the bumper and side paneling. I called the police but they were not cooperative and did not write an accident report since the damage was done to my own car by my own car. Both front tires had to be replaced costing about $150 also there is an estimated $4000 worth of damage done to the car.
