problem #4

Mar 312021

Sonata

  • 2,300 miles
Driving on dry road, in middle lane of three lanes going 65 mph. Suddenly, right rear tire "poofed" but I kept control, started to look right to get off road. Took foot off gas, did not put on brake. Suddenly, left rear "poofed" and then an extremely loud-metal on metal- sound occurred back left and my car jack knifed into the passing, fast lane. A dump truck traveling in that lane struck me, front end and my door. The truck hit me and I rolled into the grassy medium, rolling over several times. The safety devices worked fabulously and my only injuries were from the seat belts which saved my life. I am lucky to be alive and I hope this doesn't happen to someone else. I was in icu for 5 days and hospital for a total of 9 days, I am will be recovering at home for months. I would like it investigated that either a mechanical issue or tire issue caused the accident. I only had 2300 miles on the car.

When steering there is a loud noise when turning in either direction be it left or right, something is rubbing in the stirring column, with the stirring having for to much play all most turning completely a full circle I have sent in this complaint once before, but gave the incorrect VIN number for my car something is rubbing, and it's a loud sound. The sound is there if when the car is in motion, or standing still, if you turn the stirring wheel
