problem #1

Oct 122000

Contour 4WD

  • miles
Lost control of the car. Tried to overcorrect the car and turned the wheel too hard, the brakes locked and I lost control of the car and rolled it on its roof. There was sufficient frontal impact that the airbags should have been deployed, but didn't. also, it was a new car, so the brakes should not have locked.
