I purchased a 1996 Chevy Cavalier Z24 on May 13, 2004 with only 73,000 miles on it perfect condition, great car, well 7 days later my rear passenger tire snapped off resulting in me having an accident !! I am out of work now, I am trying to get compensated for this cause I am out of money, I feel this was not fair, this whole year I have tried to get lawyer after lawyer no one wants to help me I have the car still and the tire that snapped off, it's a perfect clean cut to the axle just by looking at it you can tell the axle gave away!! now I am out of a car, money, no job, and pain everyday!!!
