problem #1

Feb 122009


  • 45 miles
The contact owns a 2009 Honda Civic. While driving 10 mph, the contact struck another vehicle on the driver's side. She does not know how the front driver's side tire detached from her vehicle after striking the other vehicle from a right angle. The entire front end came off of the contact's vehicle and it was unable to be driven. The vehicle was towed from the scene and a police report was filed. There were no injuries. The dealer advised her to have the vehicle towed to them so it can be repaired. The failure mileage was 45.
