problem #1

Nov 142004

Aveo 4-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 5,600 miles
While driving on I-94 made a sudden decrease in speed from 70 mph to 60 mph and car swerved out of control, and the only thing saving me from flipping the car was after market rims and tires. Thump sound, sounded like a flat tire, checked all the tires and they were fine. Checked under the hood, engine was titled to driver's side, after inspection on side of expressway found out that the half shaft was completely destroyed as well as transmission mount bolts. There is no reason for these bolts to fail if the car is driven respectively.
