I was traveling sb I25 mile marker 251 ON7/7/17 at 13;20. When a 6ft long tire debre was in the road and got hit by truck and thrown into my radiator and damaged the front end of my vehicle. When I talk to chp he had an earlier report of this yet it was in the road when I entered onto what I believed was a safe highway. I have the required liability insurance, this is not covered. The trucking co says they arent liable so the only other liability is cdot since the road wasn't safe.

The Jaguar dealer replaced the transmission and related parts in the car as it was un-drivable. After re-assembly, the car would make clunking sounds when turning tight turns and over bumps and dips. This became more noticeable over time, until the dealer wanted to replaced most of the suspension. It turns out that the transmission sub-frame is bolted through the floor pan to spot-welded nuts. The technician broke these nuts loose during re-installing the frame member (perhaps by over-torquing). The drivetrain would then shift during the tight turns and over bumps making a loud clunking in the unibody.
