Trailblazer EXT 4WD 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 61,000 miles
1)driving down city street with no warning. Was not able to control car pulling to the right. Car went into the yard of someones home bouncing over an embankment of dirt. Looked around car and found passenger front tire was at a 45% angle. Rod holding tire in place not connected and looked clean on the end. Took car to a Chevy repair shop and they stated that the part that came loose should not have do so with the age and use of the car. Transmission case was pierced and needed replaced, axle bent and adjacent parts needed replaced. Old parts are available. Complete write up on damage available. A police report was filed since I was in someone's front yard it was considered an accident.
