    SUMMARY:
    I WAS DRIVING ON THE FREEWAY GOING APPROXIMATELY 60MPH WHEN I SUDDENLY LOST CONTROL ON A SLIGHT TURN TO TRANSFER FREEWAYS. I SWIPED INTO THE RIGHT FREEWAY WALL AND SPUN OUT DOING A COMPLETE 180 AND ENDED UP ON THE LEFT FREEWAY WALL. I DIDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW I LOST CONTROL WHEN I WAS NOT GOING THAT FAST, AND THE TURN WAS NOT AT ALL ABRUPT NOR SEVERE IN ANGLE. THE SIDE AIRBAGS WERE DEPLOYED, AND WHEN I EXITED THE VEHICLE, THE REAR RIGHT TIRE AND AXLE WAS COMPLETELY DISLODGED. I NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT, AND I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THAT WOULD HAPPEN.

    You really need to take your own advice and stop posting until the NHTSA make their decision. This is getting ridiculous.

    I see no complaint. I see an all-caps post of someone who claims to have lost control of their vehicle and has no idea why. Gee, maybe they screwed up?

    That's very compelling. Is that all you have? And why do you keep posting when you said you would stop posting until your NHTSA complaint was resolved? It seems there are ulterior motives at work.
