SERVICE BRAKES

8/5/2017 - ROSELLE, IL
I WAS DRIVING THE CAR DOWN A 3 LANE ROAD. THE WINDOWS BEGAN TO OPEN AND CLOSE, THE DOOR LOCKS DID THE SAME. WARNING LIGHTS WERE FLASHING ON & OFF ON THE DASH AND I HAD ALMOST NO CONTROL OVER THE STEERING WHEEL. THE LIGHT AHEAD WAS RED AND WHEN I TRIED TO STOP THE CAR, NOTHING HAPPENED. I TRIED PUTTING THE CAR IN NEUTRAL TO SLOW ME DOWN AND PUSHED AS HARD ON THE BREAKS AND I WAS UNABLE TO STOP AND HIS A CAR IN FRONT OF ME VERY HARD. I HAD A CONCUSSION, SPRAINED THORASIC SPINE AND NECK. A SPRAIN ON MY RIGHT HIP AND PULLED MUSCLE IN MY CALF FROM TRYING TO MAKE THE CAR STOP. THIS TOTALLED MY CAR AND CAUSED SEVERE BURNS FROM THE AIR BAGS. THE DRIVER SIDE DOOR WAS STUCK AND I HAD TO BE PRYED OUT OF THE CAR. WE HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED THE CAR AND HAD ALL NECESSARY REPAIRS. THE CAR HAD 99,239 MILES ON IT. I TRULY THOUGH I WOULD DIE. I AM UNABLE TO GET INTO MY TRUNK TO RETRIEVE MY PROPERTY AND I CANNOT TELL YOU HOW DISAPPOINTED IN THIS VEHICLE.
