SNOW PREDICTED. LEFT HOME TO GO RUN ERRANDS AT 9:30 AM, CAR LOOKED SHOWROOM NEW, GOT 1/2 MILE, CAR PULLED ITSELF RIGHT (AS IT HAS PREVIOUSLY) AND BUMPED A SMALL TREE, NO DAMAGE. CAR BACKED UP TO ROADSIDE 10', CAR CUT ITSELF OFF (AS IT HAD BEFORE), WINDSHIELD WENT FROM 30 DEGREES TO 450 DEGREES IN 3 SECONDS. I LEFT MY PURSE (WITH $1200 IN IT) AND EVERYTHING AND FLED ACROSS ROAD TO SAVE MY LIFE. ASKED MAN THERE IF HE HAD A FIRE EXTINQUISHER, HE DIDN'T, ASKED ME TO STAY BECAUSE IT WAS SO COLD, AND I SAID NO, I WANTED TO CHECK MY CAR AND IN THAT 60 SECONDS, I WALKED OUT AND STOOD IN HIS DRIVEWAY AND CAR WAS TOTALLY A BLAZE. IT HAPPENED SO QUICKLY I WOULD NOT HAVE SURVIVED HAD I NOT FLED THE VEHICLE THE CAR FROM DAY 2 RARELY CRANKED, OFTEN CUT OFF GOING 5-55 MPH, PULLED OFF ROAD TO RIGHT, AND SCARED ME SPEECHLESS. LIKE IT WAS HAUNTED AND DROVE ITSELF. I ONLY HAD IT 4 MONTHS. IT WAS A DEATH TRAP AND SHOULD NEVER HAVE BEEN PUT ON THE HIGHWAY. FOR SOME REASON, I GOT ARRESTED, I WAS TOTALLY SOBER AND HAD NO MEDICATION IN MY SYSTEM. TROOPER HAD A BREATH ALYZER, NEVER USED IT. CUFFED ME VERY TIGHTLY, READ ME NO RIGHTS, AND TOOK ME TO STATION ENTRANCE. HE GRABBED MY ARM AND DREW BLOOD (ILLEGALLY) , NO PHONE CALL, FINALLY READ MY RIGHTS, AND DENIED ME SEEING MY LAWYER 3 TIMES. ILLEGALLY. FOR 3 DAYS & NIGHTS, I WAS NEVER ALLOWED A PHONE CALL OR CODE, AM DISABLED AND HAVE OSTEOPOROSIS & HAD TO SLEEP ON A 1/4" OF FLAT PLYWOOD, THOUGH MY JOINTS DON'T TOUCH, I HAVE RESTLESS LEG SYNDROME & MUST SLEEP ELEVATED, IT WAS IMPOSSIBLE. I ALSO WENT WITHOUT ANY OF MY PRESCRIPTIONS 3 DAYS. ALL BECAUSE THIS SCARY CAR BURNED TO BENT METAL WITH NO DASH, NO ENGINE OR PARTS, NO TIRES, SEATS, NOTHING. SO NOT ONLY WAS I IN SHOCK, OUT OF ANY CONTACT WITHOUT MY PRESCRIPTIONS, AND HAD TO PAY $475 BOND, THOUGH I ONLY GET $969 , THIS CAR RUINED MY LIFE OVER A YEAR AGO, AND I HAVEN'T HAD A CAR SINCE.
