Re: What is your worst breakdown moment
a few stories... the most recent (and most popular with people in the FPV Club Sydney) was when I was in my XR on the way to dinner (car is 3 month old with 10,000kms on it). Decided (cause there was some water on the road from a slight drizzle) to get the wheels spinning a bit to reduce the radius of the U turn I was taking. 3/4 of the way through the turn my car suddenly gets a bit of traction and shudders a couple of times then BANG! didnt sound too good. With the bang the car dropped a little to the left. Let go of the clutch, and i feel a little drive and a LOUD grinding sound. Call Ford care.
Turns out, Left drive shaft is broken and CV is a thing of the past. Lovely thing warrenty is!!
Luckily we were infront of another resturant and we had dinner while we waited for the tow truck and Ford paid for the cab home.
Quiet... They are sleeping
