problem #1

Mar 112004

Mountaineer 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 43,149 miles
As I was driving, all 5 of the tire studs on my 2002 Mercury Mountaineer broke, which then caused my front passenger side wheel to fall off. When the tire fell off it tore the fender of my car. There was no damage to the tire or hub cap.
