While driving on a highway I heard a rattle in the engine, then it heard something break off, my brakes became hard I was having trouble stopping. After I couldn't accelerate and the car turned off. While trying to restart my car I could only hear a click then the engine started to smoke. I had recently experienced a harsh gear shift while driving.

I have had another incident where the automobile has had another mechanical malfunction. I was slowing down to turn at a stop light. It died, right before I started my turn. This is now the fourth incident with the same issue. Thankfully I was not hurt this time. Though I am still suffering from the incident from December 8th. My daughter was with me again when this incident occurred. She said, "mom the light is green". I said, "I know, the car is dead". I would like to know what is being done, before someone gets killed.
